Following in the footsteps of his family business, Cesare Paciotti creates designs that are impeccable and distinguishably elegant. Mr. Paciotti has created a unique and highly sought footwear collection that has been inspired by sophistication and global influences. The beloved heels from the Cesare Paciotti house are requested around the world by celebrities and high fashion women alike.
Making his mark on the fashion world, Mr. Cesare Paciotti began his endeavors in the shoe industry as a child. Working alongside his father, Guiseppe Paciotti, Mr. Cesare Paciotti developed an eye for elegance and artistry in footwear.
Apprenticing at his father’s shoe shop, which started in 1948, Mr. Paciotti learned the elaborate and exacting techniques in shoe making. The passion which his father had for developing beautiful and specialized women’s footwear was passed down to Cesare and to his sister Paola Paciotti, who is intensely involved in the present day operations of the brand.
After gaining initial knowledge in the art of shoemaking with his family, Mr. Paciotti pursued his great love for art at The DAMS Bologna, one of the most prestigious colleges in Italy. There, Mr. Paciotti perfected his talents in art and design; where upon graduation he traveled to multiple countries to learn about their culture and art. His travels lead him to Paris, London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and New Delhi; these cultures and travels greatly inspired Mr. Paciotti’s sense of design and artistic palette.
In 1980, Mr. Paciotti returned to Italy to take over his family business. After having developed a strong sense of design and style, he released his first collection of men’s footwear under his family’s business, but renamed the brand to Cesare Paciotti. This was the first launch of many successful enterprises, which later included his highly sought women’s footwear, jewelry, and athletic footwear.
Highly coveted, and sophisticated; the designs of Cesare Paciotti are wished by women everywhere. Famous clientele of the brand include Keanu Reeves, Rachel Bilson, Bianca Balti, Anne Hathaway, Izabel Gulart, and Rhianna.
