I’ve been a fan of the Vince Camuto brand for quite a while and last fall I had my first experience working with their New York team when I did a style contribution on their digital publication The Crest (which can be viewed here). Oddly enough, I just noticed that it was published on the one year anniversary of SoSasha.com and fast forward one year later, I am excited to be named one of their Canadian Brand Ambassadors. In case you missed my first outfit post featuring the brand’s Klayton open-toe booties, you can find it here.
Last week I joined fellow Toronto media personalities to celebrate the grand opening of Vince Camuto’s flagship free standing store located inside of Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Canada’s premiere shopping destination. The beautifully designed and merchandised store houses Vince Camuto’s latest footwear, accessories and key outerwear pieces from their collection, but unfortunately no ready-to-wear just yet, however rumour has it we may be expecting it in the Canadian market in the near future.
I got a chance to chat with the man behind the brand, who I am now fondly calling “Uncle Vince” to discuss his passion for creating luxurious looking footwear that won’t break women’s wallets or ankles and how the company has grown to include 30 different categories from; shoes, handbags, outerwear, clothing, watches, accessories, fragrance and even menswear.
