Aquazzura

 

Name: Edgardo Osorio (of Aquazzura)

First Collection Launched: 2011

Known For: A classic European aesthetic paired with an American sensibility

Bio: Edgardo Osario grew up splitting time between London and Miami, fashion powerhouse capitals of the world both on completely opposite ends of the spectrum.  He attended the London College of Fashion, and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, then went on to work for Salvatore Ferragamo, Sigerson Morrison,René Caovilla and recently, Roberto Cavalli.

His upbringing has undoubtedly influenced his style, as he creates shoes of modern European style and American sensibility. He works from a studio in Palazzo Buondelmonte, Italy. He cites “nude” as being his favorite color shoe, which is why several styles from his collections are made in that color, and he also favors single sole pointy pumps. The styles he designs are refined and classic, yet modern in construction and style.

Notable Clientele: Erin Wasson, Nina Garcia, Giovanna Bataglia
