Amina Muaddi
The Footwearnews designer of the year award 2019

Shoe designer Amina Muaddi will receive the Designer of the Year award at the 2019 Footwear News Achievement Awards.
The win comes just a year after the 33-year-old, Paris-based designer won the 2018 FNAA award for Launch of the Year for her namesake brand. During that time, Muaddi has captivated the fashion world with her martini glass-shaped heels — a design signature that insiders swear by for its inherent stability — that she’s built into pumps and sandals that are just as glamorous as other luxury brands, and perhaps even more so.
