The designer was born in 1898 in Bonito, near Naples, and at the young age of nine had already designed his first pair of shoes for his sister’s Confirmation. To reach his destiny, he learned his trade as a shoemaker in Naples and opened his first small workshop in the Italian port city. After he moved to the United States of America, Ferragamo settled in Hollywood and was able to gain a reputation as a fashion visionary within a short time thanks to his boutique for custom production. The film industry was ecstatic about his fine, avant-gardist creations, and as such, Ferragamo became a stylist for numerous film stars, celebrities, and cinematic productions. The great ladies of the silver screen like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo and Judy Garland loved the designer’s custom-made Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.
After thirteen successful years in the United States, the renowned designer returned to his homeland, where he settled in 1927, near Florence. When he lived in America, he attended anatomy classes at a university, in order to make his shoes more comfortable. As a result, he developed a kind of steel spring, which supports the arch between the heel and the sole. From then on, all of the designer’s footwear creations were equipped with the technical innovation, and many other designers followed suit.
