Designer Brands is one of North America’s largest designers, producers and retailers of footwear and accessories. Our primary concept, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, offers brand name and designer dress, casual and athletic footwear and accessories. The first store opened in 1991 in Dublin, Ohio. Today, DSW operates more than 500 stores in 44 states. The Affiliated Business Group operates nearly 290 leased departments for other retailers, such as Stein Mart, in the U.S. Designer Brands also operates several retail concepts in Canada, including The Shoe Company and Shoe Warehouse, which provide a convenient footwear solution for the whole family, as well as DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse – nearly 150 locations in all.
In 2018, the company acquired Camuto Group, the legendary product design and brand development organization best known for the successful Vince Camuto® brand and the footwear licenses of Jessica Simpson® and Lucky Brand®. The partnership transformed Designer Brands into one of the largest footwear companies in North America with global, industry-leading capabilities in product design, development, sourcing and production.
Sustainability and Responsibility
At Designer Brands, we're passionate about shoes—and we're passionate about selling them the right way. Responsibly, and with the bigger picture in mind. So we're focused on making ethical business decisions, caring about the environment, and acting sustainably as an organization.
We think that's what it means to be a conscientious Shoe Lover—it's what we expect of ourselves, and it's what we expect of our partners. Sustainable practices are central to living Designer Brands' core values of Passion, Accountability, Humility, and Collaboration. We're proud of the ways that we're sustainable as a company—at the same time, we're always looking for ways to get better
That's why we established the Designer Brands Sustainability Committee, a group of leaders focused on improving our current sustainability practices. This committee ensures that business decisions not only make sense for Designer Brands, but also allow us to be a responsible corporate citizen.
