Just one year after leaving Oscar Tiye, Amina Muaddi is making a triumphant return to the world of shoes. Having created every collection for the Italian high-end shoe brand since co-founding it in 2013, she departed Oscar Tiye after completing the Fall/Winter 2017 Collection. However, she still creates the footwear for French couturier Alexandre Vauthier.
The talented fashion designer, who lived in Jordan and Romania before moving to Italy, was fascinated by shoes at a young age. She even used to walk around the house in her mother’s heels as a child. Her inspiration comes from her Middle Eastern heritage and close female friends like Attico co-founders Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini.
The sophisticated debut collection includes 45 sleek stiletto pumps, mules, boots, and sandals with lustrous textures and light-catching embellishments. Below are just 10 of Amina Muaddi’s best shoes that you can purchase at Farfetch and Net-A-Porter!
