Always an imaginative sketcher, Claudia Ciuti was fascinated by the world of style from the very beginning. Having come from a family that has for decades produced shoes for various labels, it was inevitable that she would find herself creating high-end footwear.
Thus, it was not a surprise when at nineteen, Claudia entered the Fashion Institute of Design in Florence and started working in her father’s factory. She devoted her time to learning the meaning of high quality, craftsmanship and the importance of searching for and using the finest materials.
The creativity of the collection is filled with personality and has evolved into a more sophisticated look over the last few years. Claudia says, “this comes from Manhattan living. I live in New York and have offices on 57th Street. I see wonderfully elegant women, and the environment is very sophisticated. That inspires me.” The product is known for fit, quality and a look that never compromises comfort. Given the originality and variety of styles and fabrications, the Claudia Ciuti line has reached substantial market recognition in the fashion footwear industry.
