Camuto was an American footwear designer who co-founded Nine West with Jerome “Jack” Fisher in 1978. Previously, he had worked in shoe repair, sales, and manufacturing. Camuto and Fisher grew their company by using Brazilian factories to make fashionable shoes at affordable prices. The company went public in 1993 and was acquired by Jones Apparel Group in 1999. Camuto then founded the Camuto Group with his wife in 2001 to provide marketing, design, production, and sourcing services to retailers. His namesake footwear brand was launched in 2005, with its first fragrance released in 2011. Parlux holds the brand’s fragrance license.
