The background of the designer is multidisciplinary and these various cultural layers of art, architecture,
economics, and design are evident in the product she makes.
She has a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic and a degree in economics from the University of Siena. In addiction, she studied footwear design at the London Fashion College.
After several years of experience as a designer and interior architect, Alessandra Balbi decided to launch her luxury footwear brand and channel her multifaceted background into a product that reflects the most feminine and most authentic parts of herself. Her artistic and architectural references give shape to the collection and give her creations intrinsic and timeless value extending far beyond the product itself.
Founded in 2017, the Alessandra Balbi brand was born with the desire to create shoes of the highest quality in manufacturing, materials and design. All collections are handcrafted on the Riviera del Brenta, using excellent quality leathers, fabrics and accessories, paying the utmost attention to details, minimum sizes, proportions and balances. The references that inspire the collections are rooted in the world of art, architecture and design, the designer's background. The coherence between forms and meanings is an essential feature of collections that want to go beyond fashion and be ethically valuable and sustainable.
