“We are excited to welcome such a dynamic and established talent into the Ferragamo company,” said Ferruccio Ferragamo, president of Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. “We have a proud history of nurturing design talent, and we believe that Paul’s credo very much matches the spirit at the heart of our house. Salvatore Ferragamo’s journey has been distinctly market by its commitment to traditional Italian craftsmanship, quality of material and innovative luxury design. Shaping many of today’s stylistic and aesthetic codes in footwear, the brand’s pioneering spirit has resulted in iconic inventions that represent landmarks in women’s fashion, including the cork wedge and the stiletto heel. Together with Paul, we look forward to continuing our celebration of women and outstanding design, and writing a new chapter in our history.”

Added Andrew, “Salvatore Ferragamo has been an iconic reference for shoe design and craftsmanship for nearly a century. It is a great honor to be invited to lead the creative vision for the future of its women’s shoe division, where the legend began. I look forward to bringing a new perspective to the company in line with the demands of today’s marketplace, marrying the power of its heritage and industrial force with high design and the latest innovations in material and make.”

Andrew will continue to design for his namesake collection, which launched in 2013. In 2014, he was awarded the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
