Salvador’s Ferragamo began as a novice Italian shoe designer. With a vision to create and produce the world’s most beautiful shoes, he began his journey to fame by opening a humble repair and made-to-measure shoe shop first in Bonito, Italy and later Santa Barbara.
In 1965, the house of Ferragamo premiered leather goods and ready to wear apparel collection designed especially for women by Giovanna Gentile Ferragamo. Simultaneously, the company began the production of Salvatore Ferragamo bags, headed by Fiamma di San Giuliano Ferragamo.
Today the Ferragamo house creates various luxury products including women’s bags, wallets, clutches, clothing, perfume and of course, shoes.
