The History of Gaziano & Girling
Gaziano and Girling was founded by Tony Gaziano and Dean Girling in 2006, after spending over 25 years working in the high end shoe market of England
“Gaziano Girling strive to find the perfect harmony between contemporary and classic shoe design. Therefore, they continuously seek to devise premium footwear for men who demand something modern yet not overly-stylised.” Gaziano & Girling
The brands story begins when Tony Gaziano first started working in the shoe industry with Cheaney shoes which was established in 1886.
Tony’s knowledge of the shoemaking process was relatively limited when he started due to him being a trained architect; Although this allowed him to naturally excel at designing and developing new visual concepts. He also developed designs for fashion brands such as Jeffrey West and Paul Smith.
Tony went on to work at Edward Green which is where he met Dean Girling who was working freelance at the time.
Dean was born into shoemaking and his father owned a shoe shop in Norwich. Dean had completed the Cordwainers London shoe making course and was working for many different bespoke shoe brands across London including Lobb’s.
Tony and Dean developed their relationship as they were both of the same mind that traditional English brands were often stringently conservative. Tony wanted to experiment with English shoe designs and their contours.
Meanwhile, Dean craved to make shoes for his own brand. With their combined skills and expertise, they both realised that joining forces was the most logical step forward.
They launched Gaziano Girling together in 2006
Gaziano & Girling philosophy
Dean and Tony’s vision for Gaziano & Girling is deeply rooted in the fundamental desire to offer the utmost quality of shoe that exudes a bespoke finish and appearance.
Just like Fielding and Nicholson they aim to create the best quality piece they can which are exactly to the clients liking.
