Rosina Ferragamo Schiavone evening shoes, 1960s
Salvatore Ferragamo is celebrated as the creator of the most imaginative shoe designs of the 20th century. Few realize that his sister Rosina Ferragamo Schiavone also designed for the famous couture establishment. The House of Ferragamo is still going strong. Its designs were the hit of the Milan Fashion week in March, 2011.
These fabulous shoes have the flair that made the Ferragamo brand famous. The diamond shaped vamp decoration, studded with "aurora borealis" rhinestones, is spectacular. The rhinestones are repeated on the heels.
The shoes are fashioned from black silk faille and have leather soles. The insoles are stamped "Rosina Ferragamo Schiavone/Florence/Italy."
The condition is excellent.
The size is marked 8. The heels are 3" tall.
