Brian Atwood’s shoe collection is fairly new to the fashion scene, but is already coveted by fashionistas and celebrities alike. Since the line’s debut in 2001 Atwood continues to wow the masses with his sexy heels that hold their classic appeal, but always with a little something extra. Whether it’s adding more of a platform, stud detailing or an extra curvy heel, the kind of attention that goes into Atwood’s shoes is what allows them to stand apart.

For nine years prior to Brian Atwood launching his own line, he worked for Versace as the first American to ever be hired by Gianni Versace himself. Atwood was quick to prove his worth and was soon promoted as the head designer of Versace accessories. Skip ahead to 2003 when he won the CFDA Swarovsky Perry Ellis Away for best Accessory Design and Brian Atwood and his success has been climbing ever since.
