For those of you who have not heard of Cinzia Araia, let me introduce you to her incredible footwear designs and inspiration behind them all.
As soon as I clapped eyes on her footwear I instantly fell in love, each piece unique with its own story behind the design and the inspiration that went into creating the finished piece. I have a deep passion for Italian design when it comes to footwear and most of my collection stems from Italy! I save up my money just to collect beautiful shoes and I find them very comfy especially for heels to walk in and the fit really is true to size. 
Just looking at her shoes inspires me in so many ways with the different shapes, design and volume so I will end this with some of my favourite pieces from her new and past collections.

Every piece of footwear from the Cinzia Araia collection inspires me and I feel this is what I have been longing for in a shoe. That being said Cinzia not only studied fashion design to become a reputable shoe designer but also a clothing designer, she was brought up around shoes and shoe design through her family business quite simply put it was in her DNA this was her true calling and for the many customers like myself this was a breath of fresh air in shoe design. As Cinzia most often states “people do not realize how much work, research, and effort goes behind every single pair of shoes” and any fashion designer can really relate to this statement as you really need to understand and know your craft. Once you begin to understand what inspires you as a person/designer you will soon start to create a collage of interest and from there, your design begins and this is how Cinzia started to understand her identity and from there she creates a product that represented her as an individual.
Cinzia not only wanted to “create a shoe” but she wanted to push the boundaries in shoe design by building something that was out of the ordinary or as I would say “unique” she wanted to create new forms and structures that make each new season a challenge with even more experimentation. 
The main things that inspire Cinzia’s designs are the mixture of nature, dreams and the unconscious. Her world is not “retro” or “vintage” but new age simply put “futuristic” she states the future is not just her starting point but also her point of arrival. She thinks about the future and creates for the future and this is what inspires me most as I always love to think my style is more futuristic than modern as I take true passion from this and hope to grow as a person from these experiences. Just like any artist inspiration is not just taken from fashion but also sculpture, paintings, illustrations and architecture. 

Do you have a favourite footwear designer? 

xo, Jenny
