MEET THE DESIGNER
Creative Director and Founder
Greek shoe designer Etty Leon made her presence known to the fashion world by announcing her debut women’s footwear line for Spring ‘17.
Her successful academic background gave her the best possible stepping-stone to her future career. Most prominent being the scholarships she received including the Presidential scholarship, the Distinguished International Student scholarship and the Dean’s scholarship awarded to her by the Maryland Institute College of Art where she began her Fine Arts degree.
Having been acknowledged for her talent and exceptional abilities during her undergraduate studies, she was then accepted to further her studies at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in the U.S.A and was awarded with a degree in Accessories Design. This academic success was followed by a number of significant partnerships with some of the world's largest fashion brands. Naturally, the next step was to create a shoe line to call her own.
Upon returning to Athens, Etty began studying the art of shoemaking alongside skilled local shoemakers. Having gained a wealth of experience and knowledge she was finally ready to launch her own luxury footwear brand, distinguished for its exceptional craftsmanship and sophisticated approach to the modern shoe’s silhouette.
Refined, feminine and undoubtedly unique, Etty's creations stand out due to their avant-garde design. Individually handcrafted in Italy from the finest materials to ensure both utmost comfort and unparalleled style, her shoes ingeniously combine elements from styles of music and the dazzling decades of the true Star quality and Hollywood glam. Performance, glamour, rock chic, sensuality and cutting-edge are just a few words that perfectly mirror and, in fact, stand for the label's signature aesthetic.
A wide range of high-heeled sandals and flats are translated into a groundbreaking shoe line collection for a new generation of dynamic women.
