About Mark Schwartz

With an eye for design, shoe designer and artist Mark Schwartz has transformed the way the world looks at shoes today. For over 35 years, Mr. Schwartz has produced unique and compelling designs of shoes, considered by him to be the most artistic and important accessory in a woman's wardrobe. His shoe designs have graced the runways of Paris, Milan and New York, as well as the pages of fashion publications such as Vogue, Elle and W Magazine.

As a young man in the early 1980's, Mark Schwartz launched his shoe design career by assisting shoe design master Roger Vivier, and within two years Mr. Schwartz rose to become the creative director for Roger Vivier International. Mr. Schwartz aided with the design of many eclectic collections during his 7 years with the company. Roger Vivier introduced Mr. Schwartz to many of the influential players of the 1980's New York art scene, most importantly Andy Warhol, who mentored Schwartz until his death and was the one who urged Mr. Schwartz to paint his shoe designs. Schwartz and Warhol would meet two or three times a month to exchange ideas and talk about shoes and art. Warhol was a huge influence on Mark pushing him to come up with creative ways to do paintings that included shoes and leaving a strong artistic imprint that Schwartz still uses today in all of his work.

Successful Women’s Shoe Designer Mark Schwartz Releases a New Era of Men’s Fashion Forward Shoes

STAMFORD, Conn. -- Throughout Mark Schwartz's 35-year career as a successful women's shoe designer, he has always secretly wanted to design and make handmade men's shoes. Now, he's done it and his new men's shoes collection will be available this fall/winter.

Part of the reason Schwartz launched this collection is self-serving. Since he can't wear the 4-inch signature high heels he's famous for, this new men's shoe collection allows him to indulge in creating some of the most creative, unique and best quality men's shoes on the market.

His shoe designs have graced the top fashion runways of Paris, Milan and New York and they've also appeared in the pages of Vogue, Elle and W Magazine.

All of Schwartz's shoes are handmade in Italy with strict detail and attention to fit and design. His new men's shoe collection includes six styles ranging from loafers to ankle boots. The physical designs are classical with a twist. He pays special attention to the actual heel detail because he recognizes that heel shapes and placements are critical to any good design.

Schwartz's signature heel is not attached in the usual way that men's shoes are typically done. Instead, he takes a cue from his women's shoe designs and attaches the heel separately and leaves space around it. This gives the illusion of lightness, but the heel itself is masculine.

"Men who wear these shoes will be known for their fashion sense," Schwartz says.

These shoes have bold details that include pockets, newly-mixed leather colors and fabric textures to make a standout statement that fashion matters for men too.

"Shoes are the most artistic and important accessory in a wardrobe," he says.

A hands-on designer, Schwartz works in the shoe factory to ensure that each stitch is perfect. He also takes custom orders on select styles for clients who want a special color, leather material or height.

Warhol urged him to paint his shoe designs and the two would meet a few times each month to exchange ideas and talk about shoes and art. Schwartz continues to be influenced by Warhol today and imprints art in all of his shoes.

A seasoned interviewee, Schwartz is available for live interviews to discuss his history of shoe designing, his shoe art with Andy Warhol and this new men's shoes collection.
