ANABELLE TSITSIN, CREATIVE DIRECTOR
At the age of 23, after attending Instituto Maragoni, Anabelle Tsitsin turned her rich background in fine arts into an ongoing love affair with hand-drawn shoe sketches, which was a pure way of expressing herself. That’s when she decided to launch her luxury footwear brand, A by Anabelle, in 2016.
“When I designed my first shoe, I created a special A-shaped heel, which became my signature mark. Other than having A as my first name initial, it symbolizes beginnings and stability.
There’s something so effortlessly stable in that shape – two lines that emerge from a wide base a rise upwards. I was immediately attached to what it symbolizes. It’s exactly the values I wanted to put into my brand.”
