A girl can never have too many shoes. Agree?! Of course! So when Liz Lanuzo, brand consultant and the blogger behind Project Vanity organized a téte-a-téte for Mom bloggers and a local shoe brand named Ferretti, I didn’t think twice and said yes!
We were toured inside Ferretti’s flagship store in Glorietta 1 but before that we had our intimate gathering over tea and cupcakes at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery which deserves a separate post. 😉
Ms. Cecille, the owner of Ferretti was very nice and game to share with us the side of the brand not every one knows-how her parents met, it was a love story that can pass for a TV drama series. Nothing is as inspiring as true love heehee.
The brand started from humble beginnings. Each pair was carefully hand made by Cecille’s parents which they used to sell in Baclaran. They would even barter with their neighboring stores when they didn’t sell enough pair. Truly hard work pays off. Soon the shoes bacame available in leading department stores and they were able to put up stand alone stores around the metro. Ferretti prides itself for being a Filipino brand that is designed and manufactured in Marikina. They have expanded their line and have added accessories and bags on their list of products.
Even though the shoes are practically hand made and relatively exclusive because each style is released in limited quantities, Ferretti shoes remain affordable. Their price ranges from 699 php for flats and sandals to 2,500 php for heels and pumps (worth every penny for excellent craftsmanship and material used), while their bags range from 800 php to 2,500 php.
When we asked where did the name Ferretti originated? Cecille said her mom got if from a friend’s daughter whose name is well, Ferretti. It actually reminded me of the Italian designer Alberta Ferretti- no relation to the shoe brand hihi.
Tita K aka @karotitay cannot get enough of the nude shoes!
Their signature shoes would have to be their pumps. I swear they’re the lightest pumps I’ve ever tried!
Faux snakeskin tote that’s perfect for women on the go!
Look at this lovely ankle-strap sandals that Tin aka Manila Fashion Observer got. Doesn’t she have pretty feet? It’s made of real leather, lightweight and very comfortable to wear even on a long day. I actually tried a pair but the color that I want didn’t have my size!
This lovely nude sandals was one of the shoes Tita K got. We were so smitten by this that most of us got a pair.
I got this lovely green pumps. Its super lightweight and felt like I’m wearing flats, I cannot wait for my outfit shot wearing it. Abangan!
Here’s my nude sandals that is currently my summer must-have pair! I’ve been using it almost everyday since I bought it.
