Born in London and raised in Beirut, Andrea Wazen developed a great passion for sketching and designing at a young age. To fulfill her dreams of becoming a fashion designer, she moved to Paris and attended Istituto Marangoni, where she discovered and refined her shoe-designing skills. In 2010 Andrea relocated to London, where she trained under the tutelage of Rupert Sanderson and Christian Louboutin. She also took shoe design courses at London’s Central Saint Martins. The Andrea Wazen label is based in Beirut, the city in which the brand’s shoes are designed and created by hand.
