We remember Vince Camuto, the widely respected business leader and shoe designer who recently passed away. Camuto was behind the Vince Camuto brand, which held the master license for the Jessica Simpson Collection, and oversaw the design direction for multiple footwear licenses including BCBG and Lucky Brand. Before launching his own brand, he had made a name for himself as a co-founder of Nine West Inc., establishing the company as an internationally recognized, leading women’s fashion group.
