Femme Fanatique was founded in 2014, with a mission to design and produce tango shoes of unparalleled quality. Since then, the company has gradually expanded to the production of a range of made-to-order bridal and evening shoes, as well as different fashion items, such as handmade purses and handbags. All items are designed with passion, to be a statement of elegance, and are entirely handmade by specialized artisans. Shoes and handbags are made for women who are inspired by life and live every moment with passion. Femme Fanatique product lines have now acquired their own, loyal following, mainly due to their exceptional fit, and their uniquely elegant design with the subtle vintage elements that coexist in harmony with contemporary forms.
