Born in Colombia and raised between Miami and London, Edgardo Osorio, AQUAZZURA Founder & Creative Director, combines his passion for modern design with impeccable luxury craftsmanship to create timeless footwear with a twist.
After attending the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins, he made his first step into the footwear world, working with some of the most prestigious luxury brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo, René Caovilla, and Roberto Cavalli. In 2011, after working in the industry for 10 years, and at just 25 years old, Osorio launched his luxury footwear brand AQUAZZURA, whose Headquarters are situated at Palazzo Corsini, the heart of Florence, surrounded by the best shoemakers and craftsmen in the world.
Edgardo Osorio draws his inspiration from European luxury and tradition, whilst creating shoes that are both sexy and incredibly comfortable, and his signature styles have soon become footwear staples, often seen on the feet of Hollywood stars, European royalty and trendsetters all around the globe.
On top of his iconic seasonal collections, Osorio has also collaborated with renowned personalities as Poppy Delevingne and Claudia Schiffer, as well as with brands such as de Gournay, the world renowned hand-painted luxury wallpaper company, with whom he launched exclusives capsule collections.
