A retailer for more than 20 years, Mark Azoulay, founder of Ateliers Design Group, would travel to little known areas of Italy, and work directly with workshops, to build his collections. This cemented his appreciation for well made shoes, using traditional methods. In 2008 Mark created the Ateliers brand. Ateliers philosophy is to produce shoes that women will feel proud of, using specially selected leathers, and to ensure that comfort is an essential party of the design process. Quality and craftsmanship, and great attention to detail are the heart of the brand. Today Ateliers is continuing with it's expansion, with fabulous shoes available is some of the best boutiques in Canada.
