In between the rush of the recent Milan Fashion Week, Fashion & Beauty Editor Sarah caught up with luxury footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti to hear about the inspo for his Spring/Summer 2020 collection.
Giuseppe Zanotti is a red-carpet star. Not exactly in the traditional sense where celebrities pose in front of the camera but many of Hollywood’s finest, including J.Lo, Jessica Alba, Rose Huntington-Whiteley, Beyonce, Rihanna and Taylor Swift choose to wear his stunning soles to grand galas as well as on their days off. Not to mention his star-studded line-up of fashion collaborations with the likes of Kanye West, Zayn Malik and Rita Ora. So to say that he’s a successful designer is an understatement.
Interestingly enough, Giuseppe started out his career as a DJ at 17 years old and continued until he was 24 before venturing into shoe-making. It’s this connection with music that makes it so easy for him to work with some of the music industry’s biggest names.
In the middle of Milan Fashion Week, the experienced design maestro revealed his approachable and down-to-earth personality in a private interview session at his home along with his inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Click on to check it out!
