Uzurii is a fashion label with a clear and strong signature – the ultimate combination of casual glamour and timeless elegance and the expression of the designer’s passion and acute eye for fashion. Initially fashion designer Shieglee Ferreira dos Santos developed Uzurii to make women feel elegant and attractive and, above all, feminine. Followed only a year later by a men’s collection, based on the same design vision and crafted with the same care as the ladies’ line.
The Uzurii collection consists of a series of luxurious, largely handmade footwear for ladies and men. Years of research and development preceded the production and the brand never ceases to strive to improve comfort, quality and durability. Uzurii designer Shieglee Ferreira dos Santos has a passion for the best materials, semi-precious stones and luxurious details. Every Uzurii article is created as a gift to you (or to a special friend) and is presented in a luxurious box .
Its founder Shieglee Ferreira dos Santos was born in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest and moved to the slums of Rio de Janeiro at the age of five. The young Shieglee had three big wishes: to have a pair of shoes of her own, dance like a real samba queen on one of the floats in a carnival parade and sleeping in Rio de Janeiro’s most beautiful hotel for one night.
At the age of 13 she moved to The Netherlands, sailed through high school and graduated from fashion academies. Being able to absorb the most valuable elements of both cultures, she grew to be the creative and self-assured woman she is today. Thirty years on, all her wishes have been fulfilled – she has stayed at the hotel where her mother was once a chambermaid and danced as the breathtakingly glamorous Isis in Rio de Janeiro’s Samba. Her passion and unique sense for fashion resulted in a worldwide successful fashion brand. Together with her team of dedicated professionals Shieglee tirelessly works on new and more beautiful collections, inspiring, encouraging and helping others to reach their dreams.
