About Giuseppe Zanotti
Giuseppe Zanotti comes from a small town a few miles from Fellini’s Rimini, famous for its great shoe manufacturing tradition. In the early 1980’s Zanotti was a fiery DJ and patronized eclectic and fashionable nightspots. Shortly afterwards his instinctive bent for art, design and fashion led him to attentively follow the prêt-à-porter fashion shows in Milan and Paris. But it was his innate passion for women’s feet and his interest in the craft industry that his native town breathed that spurred him to take the first big step towards this profession. So he set aside his headsets and LPs to devote himself solely to fashion.
Today he works with brands such as Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, Christopher Kane and Delfina Delettrez in a synergy of creativity and challenges that are giving surprising results.
Today, the collections are sold through the New York and Milan showrooms and there are more than 50 flagship stores all over the world; while more than 350 skilled people work in the company, which manufactures over 400,000 pairs of luxury women shoes which are considered objects of dream, beauty and seduction. This is the reason why stars like Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Cameron Diaz, Janet Jackson and many others are Giuseppe’s very loyal fans.
