Andrea Wazen, I'M Alumna of the Bachelor in Fashion Design course at Paris school, is the founder and creative director of her namesake brand and one of the most notable and renowned fashion shoe designers in the Middle East and abroad. 

Andrea developed her passion for design from a young age and, to follow her dreams of becoming a designer, she moved to Paris to attend the Fashion Design bachelor course at Istituto Marangoni Paris. After graduating in 2010, she relocated to London where she worked for Rupert Sanderson and Christian Louboutin, both leading footwear brands in the fashion industry.
Andrea’s time spent in both major fashion capitals helped develop her creative vision and skills that led her to create her own footwear brand.
Andrea is known for her light feminine style and use of delicate fabric and material and her designs can be considered as «shoe couture» that have an elegant and identifying trademark blended with craftsmanship.

In 2020, Andrea Wazen was awarded with the Accessories Designer Award by Fashion Trust Arabia, and the Emerging Talent Of The Year Award by the prestigious Footwear News Achievement Awards. In both 2022 and 2023, she received further recognition when she was nominated by Forbes Middle East as part of the prestigious list of Top Women Behind Middle Eastern Brands.
