Play video about Giuliana and Dong founders by ID.EIGHT


Dong Seon Lee and Giuliana Borzillo, the founders of ID.EIGHT, both come from the world of fashion: Dong graduated in fashion in Seoul (Korea) and came to Italy with a scholarship, Giuliana with university studies in Naples and a master's degree at Polimoda in Florence.

It is precisely the passion for footwear that makes them meet in 2017 during a fair, between the 2 it is love at first sight. After a long distance dating (after finishing his studies, Dong moved to Germany where he became a stylist for an international shoe brand and Giuliana became product manager of a well-known shoe brand in Italy), they decide to take a step further and go to live together.

They discover each other day by day and decide to put their attitudes to work and transform their complementarity into something more: while Dong, in fact, since he was a child passionate about Design, had always dreamed of creating his own line of shoes that would reflect her oriental / minimal identity and her 90s-inspired creativity, Giuliana instead, always attentive to sustainability issues and passionate about everything that revolves around marketing linked to the world of fashion, dreamed of being able to create a brand that was eco-sustainable and at the same time of refined design.

This is how the 2 boys decide to transform what were their dreams into a unique, concrete, tangible reality, building the foundations of their project on the only element capable of giving practical shape to dreams: love. The brand is born ID.EIGHT, of which today Dong is the Creative Designer Director and Giuliana the Brand Manager.
