If you thought the the currently-fashionable designers all emerged around the 1970s, think again. Salvatore Ferragamo was born in Italy in 1898(!), the 11th of 14 children.
After working with many film stars in 1920s Hollywood (and founding the Hollywood Boot Shop), he returned home and founded his company and made his fortune.
Shoes remain the lead product of the brand, although it has now expanded to include bags, watches, perfume and ready-to-wear clothing lines.
Since Ferragamo's death in 1960, his wife and their children run the company, and even has his own shoe museum in Florence!
