DEBORAH BAKER, DESIGNER AND FOUNDER OF FIORENTINI + BAKER DEVELOPED AN INTEREST IN SHOES FROM A VERY EARLY AGE AFTER SPENDING SOME OF HER CHILDHOOD PLAYING IN HER MINIATURE GODMOTHER'S COLOURFUL SHOE CUPBOARD. SHE LATER ATTENDED CORDWAINERS COLLEGE ALONGSIDE EMMA HOPE, WHO IS STILL A DEAR FRIEND TO THIS DAY, AND PATRICK COX. AFTER GRADUATING SHE DECIDED TO HONE HER SKILLS AND HEAD FOR ITALY, WHERE THE CULTURE AND LIFESTYLE FORMED THE BASIS OF HER INSPIRATION.

 

AFTER MANY YEARS OF FREELANCING SHE FINALLY SUCCUMBED TO MUCH PRESSURE FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND SET UP HER OWN LINE. IN 2001 FIORENTINI + BAKER LAUNCHED ITS VERY FIRST COLLECTION, TO INSTANT SUCCESS. DESPITE THE GROWING POPULARITY AND GLOBAL SUCCESS OF THE BRAND DEBORAH HAS STAYED TRUE TO HER INITIAL PHILOSOPHY - MAKE SHOES AND HAVE FUN AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT SHE DOES
