Giuseppe Zanotti, who was born in San Mauro Pascoli, an Italian village close to Rimini, is renowned for creating modern, cutting-edge, and fashionable footwear. His design process is a combination of engineering and creativity, of seriousness and playfulness. His styles are emotive, seductive, and feminine, he claims.
The fashion designer began his career in the 1980s, first working with regional artisans before working as a freelancer for brands including Missoni, Roberto Cavalli, Dior, Thierry Mugler, Ferré, and Valentino.
Zanotti was a DJ before he became a renowned shoe designer. He got enough money in 1994 to acquire a modest shoe manufacturing business. He invested his time and effort into creating his own line of footwear at the Vicini factory, where he finally rose to the position of one of the industry’s most lauded designers. Zanotti started out as an entrepreneur with a workshop of only fifteen workers before growing to a company of 350 highly skilled workers producing more than 480,000 pairs of high-end women’s shoes. After opening his first fashion store in Milan in 2000, Zanotti later built more stores in important global capitals like London, Stockholm, New York, Moscow, Paris, Dubai, and other locations.
