About Vince Camuto
Vince Camuto first came to prominence as a co-founder of shoe empire Nine West in 1978. He departed Nine West when it was sold in 1999 and then two years later, in 2001, founded the Camuto Group which has gone from strength to strength with not only his own label, but also with collaborations with others.
In fact, Vince collaborated with the likes of Dillards Department Stores creating several brands for them. He also acquitted licences to develop footwear lines for BCBG Max Azaria and BCBGirls.
It wasn’t until 2005 that he launched his own namesake line and then just one year later, partnered with celebrated New York designer Tory Burch to launch her footwear collection which included the iconic ‘Reva’ ballet flat. Additional partnerships have also led to collections being produced in co-operation with Lucky Brand Jeans and Banana Republic.
