The King of footwear, Salvatore Ferragamo, has been providing the elite with luxury consumer goods for years. Launching his career in ever-so-wonderful Hollywood, his designs were initially utilized in film productions, like the ruby red slippers he created for Dorothy in the 1939 version of the “Wizard of Oz”. Today, Ferragamo takes a more conservative approach to shoe and accessory design (ex: continued use of block heels during the era of the stiletto). Each vision is portrayed in each well-manufactured shoe and the design house has expanded its line to bags, eyewear, silk, accessories, watches, perfumes and a ready-to-wear clothing line.
