Our company was founded 14 years ago in the town of Bacup, not far from Manchester, as a designing studio. English designers would develop and sell models for the local market. The success of the footwear with the European consumer enabled the studio to develop into a shoe-making corporation with Representative Offices in many countries of the world, such as the USA, Czech Rep, Slovakia, Italy, China, Hong Kong and Ukraine. The Company's first official Representative Office in Russia was opened in 1992. An elegant high-heeled women's pump is the Company's face for Russia, most of the Russian women have taken the fancy to for the last ten years. There are four Italians and a team of Russian designers developing a collection for all countries. The Company's most renowned brands are: BUONGIORNO, J&ELIZABETH, MARIO AVANTI, CROWELLA, AWC. For the recent years Company has become a multiple prize-winner at various exhibitions and has been nominated for Europe Award For Quality and the International Award For Commercial Prestige.
