Strain, vanity, seduction, power. Sex. A woman doesn’t need clothes. She needs shoes. Harmony with nature, the need of being part of a whole, together with the willing of not changing it. This has always been the input of my work. Byron Bay’s atmosphere is still my inspiration. His contagious energy and freshness. The willing to communicate them with my work never left me. That’s why Orgia di Verdura, my Logo-Topos, created like a graphic ’pattern’. It represents my philosophy. Where orgia is for love among humans, sharing of experiences. And, above all, a great joie de vivre.
Mine is a walking story. In 1997 I was in Australia and my last pair of sandals broke down. I had no other choice than provide by myself. I found an old tyre and used it to cut out a sole. The rest came by itself. Once I completed the first sandal, I sadly discovered that I had to make another one, symmetrical. It was a real shock, step by step though I created the left one too. After that the shoe, as essence, extension of motion, was in my cardiovascular system. This way, from a basic input, a passion was born. And that passion turned into my job.
