It was only a year ago that Paul Andrew was the design director of women’s footwear, so it comes to us as no surprise that he was appointed to the creative director of women’s wear.
“Paul has a dynamic vision for the Ferragamo woman, which he has demonstrated with crystal precision and success in footwear over the past year,” said Eraldo Poletto, group CEO. “He has a sensitivity for the essential codes and values of the Ferragamo house, and is able to recast and reassert them with an exciting, modern energy. I am confident that with this new responsibility, Paul will now be able to creatively unify all categories of the women’s business with coherence and synergy, strengthening our brand identity.”
Andrew has tons of experience with some heavy hitters in the fashion game, he’s previously worked for Alexander McQueen and Donna Karan.
“I am grateful for the confidence and trust the Ferragamo group and family have put in me,” said Andrew. “It has been a privilege to work with the expertise of one of the world’s great fashion and leather goods houses. I am thrilled by the opportunities that lay ahead in forging a single, powerful identity for a new Ferragamo woman.”
His new women’s wear collection will debut in February 2018, during the Autumn/Winter fashion shows.
