The creative behind Open Toe is Silvana Mariani, designer and Illustrator with unconventional elegant pop style, ironic and colorful.

Silvana says “The inspiration for my fashion illustrations is culture and peoples customs. I like the way fashion is getting global. Beauty and how we look after ourselves is becoming much more important, as well as how we express ourselves through the choice of what we wear every day.”
