Sarto was all smiles as he met with fans of his work.  With two models wearing his shoes, an interpreter and a collection of sketches, Sarto shook hands, answered questions and signed autographs for fans.  He effortlessly signed his famous sketches as he engaged with fans and passersby.

Sarto was born in a small town in Italy and developed a passion for shoes at an early age.  He worked in a shoe factory at 14, and by his twenties, he had partnered with another shoe designer and opened a studio.

In the ‘90s, he launched his eponymous line and has risen to world-wide popularity.  Sarto’s name is now synonymous with stylish footwear and authentic craftsmanship.  It’s Sarto’s background as both a designer and manufacturer that allow his collection to be aesthetically pleasing, yet wearable.
