In this eighth installment of FSW Conversations, FSW co-publisher Jessica Quillin speaks with Vera Giusti, who is co-creative director of Italian heritage shoe brand Attilio Giusti Leombruni, better known as AGL, along with her sisters Sara and Marianna.

Founded in 1958 by Vera’s grandfather, Piero Giusti, AGL is part of a small coterie of Italian-native luxury shoe brands that have been creating beautiful shoes for generations. Since taking charge of AGL, Vera and her sisters have reinvented their grandfather’s brand with a core focus on female-focused creativity and quality craftsmanship.

In this interview, Vera reflects on her grandfather’s legacy and how she and her sisters have worked to modernize the brand while staying true to its roots. She also discusses why running a female-centric business is critical to both creating and delivering the right products for its core consumers and also to the future of luxury itself.
