Cinzia Araia was born in Venice in 1974, her father was a shoemaker in the Riviera del Brenta. She started out in the family business and it was here that she first came into contact with the international brands working in the area. Then, having graduated in shoe design, she began to develop collections for famous Italian brands and launched the CINZIA ARAIA brand in 2010. The SS2010 collection was received very well and in 2011 Cinzia launched two different lines: a fashion collection called Cinzia Araia and a sports line called CA by Cinzia Araia. Both lines are exhibited at the Marcona 3 showrooms in Milan and Paris. With years of experience and full knowledge of the shoe making process behind her, she thrives on the challenge of taking that process further, discovering new forms and structures. This evident play of composition and decomposition makes every season a new exciting experiment.
