Alessandra Gold- Kruzin Footwear
Brazilian-born, Miami-based designer Alessandra Gold, is the Creative Director for the international sneaker brand 'KRUZIN by Alessandra Gold,' and is the brand’s Global Director of Business Development. Trained in her art at New York City’s Fashion Institute, Gold initially created the ‘GOKA’ brand of high-end, design-driven women’s shoes in the early 2000s. The early success and press coverage of this brand in publications including Vogue, Sports Illustrated and Glamour soon led shoe companies to commission Alessandra to design for them. While creating lines of sneakers and boots for brands like Osh Kosh, Baby Phat and Stride Rite in 2009, Alessandra was approached by KRUZIN to take the creative helm, and since then, has not looked back.
