Stuart Weitzman believes in inspiring women to shine boldly and confidently — a notion we bring to life by way of our high-fashion, high-function designs, striking campaigns, philanthropic partnerships and more. With that, we are excited to announce the launch of the Shine Series, a virtual series featuring conversations about letting your strength shine through.

Hosted by Stuart Weitzman Chief Marketing Officer Behnaz Ghahramani, the series invites viewers to step into someone else's shoes — be it a change maker, thought leader or culture influencer — and tune in to discussions about making bold moves, shining with confidence and walking the walk.

The Shine Series will be available on Stuart Weitzman's YouTube channel.


Serena Williams joins host Behnaz Ghahramani for the premiere episode. In this episode, Serena and Behnaz discuss the Stuart Weitzman global spokeswoman's Spring 2021 Campaign, Footsteps to Follow, which co-stars Serena's daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. They also delve into the topics of breaking barriers, modern motherhood, making bold moves and more.
