Who Started the Stuart Weitzman Brand?
The founder of the Stuart Weitzman brand is a man named Stuart Weitzman, shocking we know. What you might also find shocking is that Weitzman believed “a beautiful shoe is useless unless it feels as wonderful as it looks.” This is a sentiment we’re sure many people can get behind, especially women who love fashion. What good are beautiful shoes if they are too painful and uncomfortable to wear? This line of thinking is likely what motivated Weitzman to make comfort a priority with his brand.
More than five decades in the shoe industry is a pretty good run. Image courtesy of Stuart Weitzman.
But that isn’t the whole story, Weitzman actually grew up working under his father as an apprentice. His father, Seymour Weitzman owned a shoe factory in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Stuart wasn’t just skilled in the art of shoemaking, he also had a talent for pattern-making. In 1986 Stuart would combine these gifts and founded the Stuart Weitzman brand and the rest, as they say, is history. Weitzman retired after spending more than 5 decades working in the footwear industry.
The current head of design at Stuart Weitzman is a man named Edmundo Castillo. When it comes to elegant silhouettes Edmundo is known for his master-craft work. Edmundo’s lifelong passion for shoe design led him to join Stuart Weitzman as the head of design back in 2018. His beautiful yet precise shoe designs were exactly the kind of thing that the Stuart Weitzman brand is all about.
Castillo began his work in 1989 with Donna Karan. After 9 years of working and improving his craft there, he moved on and joined Ralph Lauren starting his own brand in 1999. The designs from his namesake brand quickly rose to prominence and were worn by celebrities like Beyoncé and Kate Moss.
