Tell us who you are…
I am, Brian Atwood “duh” and if you don’t know then you are on the wrong website… hahahhahah 😂
1. Tell us about your business and what makes you stand out?
I started my “Brian Atwood” designer line in 2001, and I always said that I wanted my shoes to represent glamour and timeless design. Since the beginning BA has always been a staple worn by celebrities and fashion lovers around the globe. My shoes stand out because of their BOLD nature, blatant sexiness and elegant silhouette. I love color so that is a huge BA element that is always present.
2. How did you get started?
I attended FIT university and studied Fashion Design. After I finished college I worked as a model and traveled frequently to Europe. I had always loved the influence that European culture had on my designs. When I was ready to start my design career I hand wrote my resume and delivered it to a few fashion houses that I loved. I got a call the same day from Gianni Versace to meet for an interview. Once hired Gianni asked me to design shoes for The Atelier Versace Haute Couture show in Paris… that’s is where I got my feet wet, and really started to learn how to design shoes… the rest is history.
