CA by Cinzia Araia
View Designer Profile
Born in Venice to a family of heritage shoemakers, Cinzia Araia was blessed with the practical and technical roots needed to strengthen her own vision. Though the knowledge comes from her background, the style is all hers: pieces reflect the designer's eye for the unfinished, the unusual, the inaccurate, and the irregular. After studying fashion design in Bologna and specializing in footwear design at the Venice Politecnico, Araia launched her first line in 2010. She earned a reputation almost immediately for toying with shape and volume.
