Tori’s eye for fashion began at just 9 years old when her mother taught her to sew Easter dresses. As a teenager, she progressed to designing prom gowns for classmates. Her inspiration to design shoes came in 1994 when she studied abroad and saw a demonstration given by a master shoemaker in Venice, Italy. She was struck by the intricacies of artisan shoe making and eagerly embarked on a career as a shoe designer.
In 2011 Tori launched the Tori Soudan Collection, a luxury Italian-made shoe line that comes in an array of beautiful, eye-catching styles. Handmade by master artisans with impeccable skill, each shoe is crafted from the finest leathers and most opulent fabrics.
