THE STORY OF HOW I FELL IN LOVE WITH DEL GARDI SHOES.
In a picturesque location just thirty minutes from Bologna, situated around the old fortress “Gardi”, lies a small town. For many years, handmade shoe production workshop runs in this town. Beauty and elegance of its products contrasts with the pristine and beautiful nature of the area. Inside the workshop, sixteen qualified professionals creating exclusive models of shoes day by day.
Before starting to work on a new pair of shoes, modelers are developing precise patterns, transformed from a three-dimensional model, created by designers. Usually, the model
gets adjusted several more times, until it reaches the ideal and desired result. Each pair of shoes bears the warmth of at least fifty pairs of skilled craftsman’s hands. Each product is in harmony with very incongruous things – origins and traditions of the craft and the elegance of mega polis.
HOW I FELL IN LOVE WITH DEL GARDI SHOES
We participated in Riga Fashion week in S/S 2013 with our STUDIO KATANA collection for F/W 2013/14 and we wanted to collaborate with a unique shoe brand. We chose Del Gardi for prefect match to our vision or perfection and uniqueness of those shoes. In the fitting I was giving these pairs of total fabulousness to the models to try them on and just fell in love in each pair after pair after pair. I needed them all for myself. I bought three or four pairs and I needed more. Because that are are stylish and match the personality, willthose be boots or stilettos. They all have that edgy look. And they are unique.
I was more than overwhelmed to start selling them at KATANA BOUTIQUE concept stores in 2015 and now offer them together with stylist selected outfits or separately to our beloved stylish clients. Each pair is fascinating and special. The unique fact is that You can custom order this footwear in any custom color. It is more than a fashion minded person would ever wish for. Now You can order Your custom shoes online!
