Dahlia Selva

Danilo Giordano and Stephanie Roy-Heckl.

During my search for new shoe designers I came across Dahlia Selva which means Savage Flower in Italian. The label made its debut this year and is the child of Danilo Giordano and Stephanie Roy-Heckl. When creating the brand Giordano and Roy-Heckl wanted to bring out shoes that are luxurious and feminine.

Mr. Giordano who is from Southern Italy graduated from Polimoda in Florence with a degree in Costume and Fashion Design. Danilo has twenty years experience in footwear design and worked for Tod’s and Bally’s in the past. In 2007 he moved to New York to take a design position for Ralph Lauren where he met his future partner Stephanie.

Austrian-born Stephanie Roy-Heckl graduated from Bocconi University in Milan with a degree in Economics. After graduating from Bocconi Roy-Heckl moved to NY where she landed a PR internship with Gucci. Deciding that the public relations world is not for her Stephanie turned her attention to wholesale where she worked for Ralph Lauren and later Christian Louboutin.

Dahlia Selva puts an emphasis on creating shoes that appeals to a lady’s individuality by allowing her to embrace her sensuality. Each shoe is uniquely curved and has an alluring mix of different materials. Roy-Heckl and Giordano created a great array of shoes for their debut and I cannot wait to see their next collection.
