We’ve collaborated with creatives from all over the country to take a classic Chooka City Solid boot and turn it into a piece of art that’s unique to them.
Our next featured boot is by Assaf Ziv.
Assaf Ziv is a branding, image, and marketing consultant to leading fashion companies. The book, Stylemakers: Inside Fashion, dubbed Ziv "The Wizard" in selecting him as one of the most influential fashion luminaries today. He brings an extensive background in worlds of fashion, editorial, and branding, and has a reputation as one of the world's most influential style-makers. Ziv has years of experience as an art director and fashion director for international magazines, advertising campaigns, catalogs, and runway shows. He has also worked as an interior designer and set designer for film productions.
His work is driven by a strong conceptual vision. He draws from a wide range of sources - art, music, vintage markets, foreign travel, graphic design, and architecture. His personal passion is art, both as collector and as an artist: his own paintings and photographs have been shown in galleries around the world.
Inspiration for his boot: His own work, mixing the past and the future: Medusa. The mystery of the Greek mythology mixed with digital, art, fashion, and beauty. The Greek goddess muse is the face of a top international model in 1988, Michaela Bercu. Embellished with Swarovski crystal, gold leaves, gold thread, and painted in black.
