Ferragamo: Shoe Designer

I know my post on this blog are sparse... to say the least, but I am so glad to see you guys are still visiting! I am going to do my best to keep up with it better than I have the last few months. Even if I just post a picture I love... I will make my way over here!

And so here we have a picture I found on Pintrest a few weeks ago...Here we see acclaimed shoe designer Ferragamo kneeling among the shoe forms of some of Old Hollywood's top stars. Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, and Lauren Bacall are just a few of the names seen in this photo!

Ferragamo started making shoes when he was only 9 and became one of the most sought out shoe designers in Hollywood. He has been credited with creating platform soles and wedge heels! Think about that next time you are are out shoe shopping and try on those platforms! He is most famous for creating the ruby slippers from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. Below is a picture of Audrey Hepburn during one of their shoe fittings...
