Gonzalo de Cardenas' Profile
Peruvian-born Gonzalo de Cárdenas studied architecture and industrial design before becoming a footwear designer.
His design background and his love for colour, ornament, pattern, history, and the eclectic came together in the form of a shoe when he got his first pair of bespoke shoes made. Gonzalo asked the shoemaker if he could watch him work and has not stopped learning since.
He lives in Toronto, Canada where he designs for Blanc de Noir and Rogues Custom.
