Zyne's founders Zineb Britel and Laura Pujol have been best friends for life. Zineb Britel, the Casablanca born designer, studied at ESMOD in Paris and worked at two of the most prestigious French couture houses: Christian Dior and Sonia Rykiel. Discovering her true passion and talent lay in shoe design, she decided to enroll in Central St. Martins and Moda Pelle in Italy to further her expertise. It was during this time that she felt inspired to explore her own country's footwear and develop a fresh take on the traditional babouche. Born in the 90's, Zineb's style is anchored in the laid back multi-cultural vibe made popular by her generation. Laura Pujol, also comes from a luxury fashion background. Having graduated from INSEEC, one of France's top advertising schools, Laura went on to specialise in Luxury Goods Marketing at L'Ecole Internationale de Marketing de Luxe in Paris and worked for the renowned brand Christian Louboutin. With a passion for the painstaking craft of luxury goods, Laura decided to work with and honor those who dedicate their lives to the trades that make these beautiful products possible.
