At the centre of our story is the Faber Novella woman, she is the modern day heroine yearning for the dream pair of shoes that can reflect her personality, her lifestyle and carry her towards her ambitions. She is strong, independant, not afraid to be herself and she is at the heart of everything we do.

Victoria Burlacu

Faber Novella's Founder

Victoria Burlacu, founder of Faber Novella, was inspired by her mother’s belief that every woman deserves to curate her own personal style. Her love for bespoke fashion began many years back.

“Growing up in Moldova during Soviet times, there was not a lot of variety of fashion available in the stores, but at the time, tailoring was fairly accessible. I did not have a vast wardrobe like we have today, but the few custom-made tailored pieces I had were very special to me; they were uniquely mine.”
Despite living in eight countries across the world, Victoria struggled to find shoes that suited her personal style and desires. The heel was too high, the fit was inapt, the color not to her taste. She embarked on a journey to create high-quality yet accessible shoes - shoes that are customized by hand to complement the unique identity of the wearer.
Shoes that allow women to bring their own creative vision to life.
Victoria travelled to Vigevano, Italy’s luxury shoe capital, where she spent two years working with master craftsmen to develop Faber Novella’s signature styles, curating each custom-made feature with the highest attention to detail.
