Born in London, raised in Beirut, Andrea, the fashion shoe designer developed a great passion for sketching and designing at a young age. To fulfill her dreams of becoming a designer, she moved to Paris and specialized at the Istituto Marangoni Italian fashion school where she discovered and was appreciated for her skills in shoe designing.
In 2010, Wazen relocated to London where she was trained under the tutelage of Rupert Sanderson and Christian Louboutin, both leading footwear brands in the fashion industry. In parallel, she also attended shoe design courses at the renowned Central Saint Martins School of Arts.
Andrea’s time spent in both major fashion capitals helped forge her inspiration and urge to finally to become a women’s shoe designer and create her own footwear brand.
Andrea is known for her light feminine style and use of delicate fabric and material. The designer likes to consider her original designs as «shoe couture» that have an elegant and sophisticated trademark blended with impeccable craftsmanship.
In 2020, Andrea Wazen was awarded with the Accessories Designer Award by Fashion Trust Arabia, and Emerging Talent Of The Year Award by the prestigious Footwear News Achievement Awards.
