Salvatore FerragamoBook - 2000
Shoes are an important element of style, and the creations of Italian-born Salvatore Ferragamo (1898-1960) have played a fundamental role in the fashion life of some of the biggest stars of the twentieth century, notably Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Salvatore Ferragamois considered as one of the most innovative shoe artist of the century -- known in particular for inventing the platform heel and transparent sandals -- and his life story reads like a novel, plunging us into Hollywood of the forties and fifties and beyond. Today, Ferragamo's name lives on as a top-of-the-market brand known internationally.
