MAUD FRIZON is the ingenious creation of the glamorous 1960’s Parisian haute couture model, Maud Frizon de Marco. At the time, shoes were not provided to models. Craving for stylishly comfortable shoes to walk the runway, Mademoiselle Maud Frizon started designing footwear that would literally make models kick-up their heels about work. Her debut collection, with each pair hand-cut and finished, was adored by her peers and praised by critics as sexy and unpredictable. The first MAUD FRIZON boutique , which opened in 1969 in the legendary St German de Pres district, was an immediate success.
