"Q" by Pasquale
spring/summer 2010

The Couture of shoe making

On 29 January 2010, the 100 pairs collection of handcrafted shoes 'Q by Pasquale' made of Murano glass premiered at a champagne reception in Los Angeles in front of media, celebrities, designers and stylists. Q by Pasquale is the label of master shoemaker Pasquale Fabrizio who had the idea for the Cinderella-like shoe made of handcrafted soles, embellishments of Murano glass and 24-carat gold beading. Pasquale worked five years on the couture collection of evening shoes before he went in front of the public.

Pasquale Fabrizio has learned the couture of shoe making through his family which is in the shoe business since around fifty years. Today, he is 'tuning' the shoes of Madonna, Angelina Jolie, or Sarah Jessica Parker. Already in 2008 Gendy Alimurung for LA Weekly has entitled an article: 'Cobbler To The Stars: Pasquale Fabrizio'.
