The History of Charles Jourdan since 1919
Deemed as one of the most innovative shoes designers, Charles Jourdan of France started his business in 1919, exactly a century ago. From opening a small shop in Romans, France, Charles established himself as an haute couture house in 1930.
Charles Jourdan (1883 - 12 February 1976) has designed and produced shoes for Christian Dior and Pierre Cardin. A decade after Charles Jourdan passed away in Paris in 1976, the brand gained a massive global exposure after many of Charles Jourdan shoes were found at the Malacañang Palace during the coup against the late President Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines. Imelda Marcos, the former first lady was known to have a huge collection of luxurious shoes.
Joined by his three sons, Rene, Charles and Roland, the Charles senior expanded his business to the United Kingdom where he counted the late Princess Diana as a loyal customer. Charles Jourdan under Roland Jourdan expanded into watches, ready to wear clothing and handbags. However, since Roland Jourdan retired in 1981, the Jourdan's family involvement in the business is no longer known.
