Pasquale’s mission is to provide empowerment by creating the most unique and accessible, limited-edition luxury products world-wide.
OUR VISION is to create timeless heirlooms that with proper care will last forever. We believe in educating our consumers to sustain a lifetime of value from all of our products.
Using the concept of classic with modern edge, Pasquale created his reputation, designs and practices from the perspective of a generational craftsman in the specialty shoe business for the most relevant names in the entertainment and fashion industries. From these lessons and relationships a unique set of values was developed.
Our shoes are 100% made-to-order in Italy by the world’s best craftspeople using the most sustainable materials possible. Our styles are co-designed with celebrities who see it as their responsibility to inform and uplift others who are less fortunate. With that in mind portions of all sales from the collections are donated to a charity of the celebrity’s choice.
Pasquale’s vision goes far beyond charity. We keenly understand that what we wear/how we wear it has tremendous power to change our persona. Ultimately the shoes we wear can profoundly influence how others perceive us: they can provide new, life changing opportunities and a sense of purpose for those who wear them. From this platform, we intend to help “heel” the world one step at a time.
For nearly fifty years the Fabrizio family built a worldwide reputation for precise and expert shoe craftsmanship by making made-to-measure shoes for Cary Grant, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, among countless other Hollywood celebrities of that era. Through Pasquale’s passion and perfectionist’s vision the family business has become, according to “W” Magazine, “the best in the world.” Now, before stars, such as Madonna, Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Anastacia, Tom Hanks and Celine Dion attend the Oscars, the Grammys or the Emmys, they first go to Pasquale Fabrizio.
In 2005 Pasquale started with his unsurpassed knowledge of shoe architecture to create the world’s first wearable glass shoe. After researching and engineering the technology required to make these shoes a reality, the result is a beautiful combination of cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned tradition. Each shoe is 100% handmade in Italy with a sole made of a specially-designed glass which is unsurpassed in strength, durability, flexibility and transparency. A beautiful assortment of handcrafted Murano glass and 24k gold beads accent the fine Italian leather to create a one-of-a-kind work of wearable art.
Pasquale has now proudly taken his passion, inspired artistry and exacting standards to create his own brand of critically acclaimed footwear. The “Q by Pasquale” style is both uniquely fashionable and sensual. Some of the special shoes in this collection feature gorgeous one-of-a-kind heels, as well as painted leather soles. Each is 100% handmade in Italy.
