DESIGNER NAME: Diego Vanassibara
BACKGROUND: Having grown up in south Brazil, Vanassibara moved to the UK at the age of 22. He has a degree and a diploma from Cordwainers in footwear design and product development.
TRADEMARK PIECE: “It is actually not a piece, but a unique shoe construction that I created called hybrid construction, where I fuse both Oxford and Derby into one unit. And naturally, everything is permeated by a modern and contemporary take on artisanship.”
