Icons of Today
by Margherita Perrone
Feraggio perpetuates the talent and the attractiveness of historical icons such as Cindy Crawford and Sharon Stone, celebrates the refinement and the determination of royal icons like Charlotte Casiraghi and Meghan Markle, but at the same time proposes new faces and personalities willing to make their mark. These new icons do not always reside in royal palaces or appear on the great screen, but walk alongside us on the street, share their most exciting moments on their social channels and entertain our evenings while we relax in front of the television.
Designed to enter the scene with boldness and passion, Feraggio heels accompany energetic and ambitious women to every place and occasion; they lead them to the busiest streets of the city, to their offices and workplaces, to the most popular bars and restaurants, and even to the most beloved and followed Dutch TV shows.
The journalist Annechien Steenhuizen never announces the 8 o’clock National Dutch News without firmly standing on her Feraggios. She is so loyal to the brand that she even got her own custom-made pair! Passionate about journalism since she was a romantic student eager to travel the world and report every kind of news, Annechien boasts an intense career in the radio and TV world. She is known as the “beloved presenter with a good sense of fashion” and we are not surprised that this name is assigned to one of our most ferment ambassadors!

Quinty Trustfull is a big fan of our evergreen Deep Black pumps. The renowned TV presenter is also ambassador of Pink Ribbon, organization for the research of breast cancer treatment actively supported by Feraggio, and of DaDa Foundation, association for the care of children hospitalized. Precisely for the presentation of DaDa Foundation, Quinty flaunted our best seller, below the rip of a long white fancy dress with black polka dots. Furthermore, Quinty demonstrates how our pumps can be perfectly combined both with a elegant or casual look: to host the talk show “Koffietijd”, which is aired every business day at 10 am and 5 pm, she proposes different shades of Feraggios with sophisticated suits or with a jeans and a shirt, and the wow effect is ensured in both cases. Dulcis in fundo, Quinty knows that our pumps are perfect to tread the red carpet and to enhance her fierceness under the spotlight.

Feraggio loves socially engaged women. Not surprisingly, another true ambassador is Bridget Maasland, who, besides being TV presenter, model and ex-dancer, is an animal rights activist. She founded, in fact, “Dutchpuppy”, which helps stray dogs all over the world. We can admire her standing in Feraggios most of the times she presents the quiz “De Zwakste Schakel”. This program was previously presented by Chazia Mourali, TV presenter particularly known for being sassy; inheriting such a television role, associated with so much power and boldness, must have been a challenge that Bridget has seen fit to face wearing a pair of heels designed to instill the same audacity.

Among others, another iconic woman that we were delighted to admire standing in our heels comes from the glossy pages of fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Maxim and Cosmopolitan. Nadia Palesa, Dutch model, TV presenter and actress, dazzled us with her Strong Espresso pumps, matched to a sparkling sequin dress, while presenting the "Bullshit Awards". We sincerely hope that she will continue to make us daydream in the future, wearing Feraggio once again.

Speaking of fashion magazines, many are the publications that flattered us. Feraggios have been featured on several iconic magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Jan, Nouveau, Volkskrant Magazine, &C, Beau Monde, Elegance, Vrouw Glossy and Linda Magazine. In particular in several issues of Linda, our heels have played the lead role. Peculiarly iconic was for us, for example, the recent January 2020 issue, whose cover depicts Linda de Mol, founder of the magazine and effervescent personality of the Dutch television since 1985, posing in the middle of a spring of colors while wearing our Pink Ribbon Velvet pumps. Leafing through the pages of this issue, we are then enchanted by the shot taken by Wendelien Daan, in which the model Emma Wortelboer lies in the middle of a rainbow branded Feraggio.

A singular representation of the Feraggio woman is instead embodied in Beertje Van Beers. Presenter and writer with a great sense of style, Beertje stands out for her eccentric shoots and for the proposal of fresh looks distinguished by an energetic and youthful spirit but at the same time by heightened elegance and femininity. We love to see how she styles a colorful dress or a T-shirt and jeans with a pair of Red Orange or Sweet Pink heels! Her dazzling smile and funny poses complete her shots, in which the bright Feraggios enhance the sunny personality of a woman who loves and enjoys life to the fullest.

Upcoming ambassador that we seize this opportunity to introduce is Annemarie Van Leggelo. Considering herself an etiquette and image expert, she founded “Etiquette Bureau”, an agency that offers consultancy and specialized training in modern business and international label. “You only have one chance to make a first impression”: this is her motto, and we can only confirm how this is perfectly consistent with her choice to represent Feraggio.

Finally, after introducing with enthusiasm our icons, we would like to remind you that you can be the next Feraggio ambassador too, and you do not need to be part of the showbiz or to boast a large following on social media to become one. Not surprisingly, we are proud to count among our ambassadors even women like Birgit Reumkens, an energetic mum and tenacious fashionista who never renounces to style and who knows that the choice to wear her Feraggios even when traveling will not affect her comfortability.

So it is: we were born to support the soles of the feet as well as the ambitions of the women who want to heel the world, and you know what - the only requirements to become our new icon are: stand tall, walk longer and be fabulous!
