Women everywhere dream of wearing Stuart Weitzman shoes, with sumptuous styles. Each pair takes six to seven weeks to make, with the hands of 80 different craftsmen contributing to its completion.
I'm a real person making a real product, not a brand name hiding behind a corporation, says Stuart Weitzman, emphasizing his highly personal approach to the 300-plus new shoe designs he introduces every year. The American designer, who originally intended to work on Wall Street, instead found himself irresistibly drawn to his father's business. But Stuart Weitzman soon made a name for himself, combining his classic yet original designs with unique materials, ranging from cork to Lucite, vinyl to wallpaper, 24-karat gold to Swarovski crystals, to make shoes beyond compare.
