’Women’s History Month: A Year Into the Pandemic, How 15 Female Shoe Entrepreneurs Are Forging Ahead and Finding Purpose’
'Borghini is overseeing the upcoming launch of GIA/RHW, a footwear collection in collaboration with model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The line, which is slated for an exclusive launch on FWRD.com on March 15, includes four styles handcrafted in Italy and inspired by the beauty of nature.
On developing a footwear collection with Huntington-Whiteley in the middle of a pandemic: “Working with Rosie made me forget sometimes the situation we are all in. I was very hands-on getting to know her and living the dream of developing the collection around her style. I admire Rosie as a woman and an entrepreneur — and her impeccable taste. It wasn’t a traditional design process, as we worked entirely over Zoom, although the development process was extremely smooth and easy as she brought so much of her experience to the process. I feel very connected to her because of this unique experience.”
