Vigevano is one of the important shoe-manufacturing city of Italy as well as one of the most significant city of shoe machineries production. Many intentional luxury shoe brands such as Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin, Moreschi are located in this area.
Our main office is just few minutes away by walk from the city center and one of the best shoe museums “Museo Internazionale della Calzatura” in Italy, where people can find the inspirational and rich collection of the shoe history in the past 500 years.
Our office is divided into few different areas; the main design studio offers a spacious room for the designers. On another side, we placed our historical archives and a series of collections of sketches, pictures and vintage shoe details of the past 100 years.
By the design studio, there’s a fully equipped lab with leather storages, shoe uppers preparation areas and stitching machines to offer the support to designers by making leather trials, prototypes and different swatches to finalize the collections.
There’s an internal pattern making area where along with the designers, we bring the ideas from scratch to drawing, from paper to shoe lasts, and from paper patterns to CAD.
In collaboration with one of the best education center, TaF.tc: Singapore Fashion & Design School, we decide to open an office inside TaF.tc school in order to have a direct window to the growing Asian market.
Singapore, as one of the important trading center and the main door of the southern Asian area, offers plenty opportunities to the footwear and fashion industry.
Having an office in Singapore gives us a great platform to share our experiences with this potential market and being closer to our customers world-wide.
