Cinzia araia was born in Venice in 1974. You might say that shoemaking runs in her blood – her father was a shoemaker in the riviera del brenta. She started out in the family business and it was here that she first came into contact with the international brands working in the area. Then, having graduated in shoe design, she began to develop collections for famous italian brands. But cinzia was driven by her own personal vision and she launched the Cinzia Araia brand in 2010 to fulfil her own creative passion. The Cinzia Aria collection is now exhibited at the 88 showrooms in Milan and Paris.
