French born, New York based footwear and accessories designer, Alexis Gamblin, launched his namesake line for fall/winter 2015.
With 20 years of accessories design experience, Gamblin began his career in Paris at the groundbreaking house of Charles Jourdan.
After earning his diploma, Gamblin worked in various design roles from jewelry, ready to wear, and store window design, to button collections, and sales. With his eye firmly fixed on footwear design, he enrolled at the A.F.P.I.C. in Paris where he formally trained in the art of shoemaking.
It was at the house of Jourdan where Gamblin found his creative voice, and honed his “savoir-faire à la Française”.
He developed a deep knowledge of French shoemaking based on his passion for design, innovation, respect for craftsmanship and unconditional love for the finished product.
“My designs reflect a confident, passionate and modern woman. She has an inner strength and beauty that she expresses in her every day life through her confidence, sense of humor, and love of a great design”.
