Question of the Ruby Slippers[edit]

In the first paragraph, it is stated that one of Ferragamo's most noteworthy contributions to movie fashion were the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz. However, the article on the ruby slippers credits the designer Adrian. Did Ferragamo actualy design the specific shoes, or did Adrian just use a pair of pre-existing Ferragamo heels? If the Wizard of Oz thing isn't correct, I would probably mention instead that Ferragamo practically invented the wedge, and reinvented the platform of the 40's. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 05:15, 20 March 2007 (UTC).

Merge in the company?[edit]

Having cleaned up the Salvatore Ferragamo Italia S.p.A. there's a lot in there that is now safely referenced and could be transcribed in here. On the other hand, there's a good argument for merging the company article into this one, most of the Italian fashion house articles have one article covering both the founder and the company. I've a slight preference for merging, but I'm not that bothered either way. FlagSteward (talk) 23:54, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Listing "homosexual" under occupation[edit]

Does it make sense to list Ferragamo's occupation as "Shoe designer, homosexual"? I'm in sales. I would think it was kind of odd for someone to list my occupation as "salesman, heterosexual". --Wikinovice828 (talk) 21:57, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
