He worked with the most prestigious luxury brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Sigerson Morrison, René Caovilla and Roberto Cavalli. He launched Aquazzura in 2011 after working in the industry for ten years.
Aquazzura is stylish luxury yet wearable footwear for women of all ages created by finding the perfect balance between modern design and impeccable craftsmanship.
I love the pineapple heel detailing in gold
Aquazzura mixes a refined European aesthetic, with modern American sensibility and Latin flair. He draws his inspiration from the European tradition of high craft and luxury while creating modern and sexy shoes. When Edgardo Osorio was launching his label Aquazzura, one of his influences came from the Mediterranean. This area is represented in this collection by Edgardo’s use of colorful sandals, wedges and d’orsay pumps. Each of these heels are stylish and comfortable enough to be worn on any cruise or for a stroll on the beach.
Aquazzura Spring Summer 2013 collection had its exclusive VIP launch event last week at Dubai’s shoe heaven – Level Shoe District at Dubai Mall and charming Edgardo Osorio was there to meet and greet with clients and press.
