Stuart Weitzman Co-Designs Young Hollywood Cares Collection for Cancer Research

Famed footwear designer, Stuart Weitzman has been known for saying:

"High Heels indicate power." 

"Nothing will do a better job than heels at making a good pair of legs look great or great ones look fabulous." 

"Flat shoes are not sexy but they’re cool and it’s just as exciting to be cool as it is to be sexy."

Stuart Weitzman designs comfortably constructed and coveted shoes as celebrities and fashionistas will attest. This is not an easy feat for a luxury shoe designer and with all his success, he remains humble, grateful and proud of his life's work.
