Salvatore Ferragamo officially named Paul Andrew its first-ever design director of women's footwear on Thursday. WWD first reported on this potential hire at the end of last month before anything was confirmed.

"It is a great honor to be invited to lead the creative vision for the future of [Salvatore Ferragamo's] women's shoe division, where the legend began. I look forward to bringing a new perspective to the company in line with the demands of today's marketplace, marrying the power of its heritage and industrial force with high design and the latest innovations in material and make," Andrew said in a statement.

This new hire is effective immediately, and Andrew's first collection for Salvatore Ferragamo will be for the pre-fall 2017 season. Andrew, who was awarded the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design in June, will continue working on his namesake label as well. Andrew also does various freelance consulting projects for other brands, such as Diane von Furstenberg and Vera Wang.

Salvatore Ferragamo's most recent creative director, Massimiliano Giornetti, departed the Italian brand back in March.

"We will take this opportunity to revisit our creative approach. Over time, the company has nurtured and sponsored many young designers and is fortunate to be able to count on an excellent in-house team," Group CEO Michele Norsa said in a statement.
