|"On my second date with my husband, I slipped on black ice leaving me with a trip to the hospital, a fractured face, skull and a severe concussion - all because I was wearing luxury shoes with zero traction. Never wanting another woman to suffer the same experience, I launched FSP, which quickly became more than a brand born out of trauma - it became a movement...I create luxury footwear that speaks to women; statement pieces that are jewelry for her feet, empowering her with every step. As a woman, I know that we always want to feel beautiful, confident, and fearless. The name 'Femmes Sans Peur' was so fitting... the translation embodies everything I want our shoe lover to be, because we know when a woman feels fabulous in her own skin she is unstoppable!"
As a Native New Yorker Christina developed her multi-cultural aesthetic early on with a deep love for travel, culture and art history which is strongly reflected in her footwear.
