American Fashion Designer, New Yorker, and Husband Vince Camuto died of cancer at the age of 78 yesterday, January 21, 2015. Vince is best known for his work in women’s shoe fashions, and as co-founder of Nine West.
Although Nine West was founded in 1978, it would be 27 years later before he started his namesake footwear line, later expanding into other areas of fashion. At this time, Vince also mentored Jessica Simpson, helping build her brand to a value of over 1 billion USD.
We are all so very sad to hear when we lose a great fashion designer. Our thoughts go out to the Camuto family.
