TIAGO: THE COLLECTOR

WAU WELCOMES TIAGO ESCADA RAMOS, THE MOST RECENT BRAND AMBASSADOR  

WAU is all about inclusion and diversity. Not only in terms of the designers, but also when it comes to the ambassadors.

This is a good time to state that all our ambassadors are volunteers and are not compensated in any way for this task.

We are proud to present Tiago Escada Ramos, the first brand ambassador from the Old Continent.

Born in Lisbon, Tiago has a degree in Fashion Design.

At the present time he is Head Buyer at BAE Store and Brand Manager at Fashion Clinic, as well as co-founder of Pine & Branches Agency (distribution of apparel and footwear).

HIS CONNECTION TO THE CULTURE AND THE COMMUNITY WAS WHAT MADE THE LIAISON WITH WE ARE UNDERDOGS

 

Tiago was one of the founders and is still one of its most active members, of Sneakers Love Portugal (website) (instagram) (facebook) , a community that promotes sneaker culture in Portugal.

 

He’s also known worldwide for being a vintage sneaker collector and connoisseur. His eclectic collection of kicks is impressive. (link)

 

He was also sales and marketing representative for K’LEKT, collaborator at Cult Edge and writer for Sneaker Freaker Magazine.

 

Tiago was gifted a one in a lifetime chance when, by the occasion of his 35th anniversary, he was invited to take a tour of the Cumbria, UK Flimby factory. He was able to customize his own shoe, a 1-1 NB 1500!

 

We are stocked to have him on board and count on him to help us improve constantly, spreading the word on what WAU is and stands for.

 

He’ll definitely help us push the boundaries and raise the bar this side of the Atlantic!

 

Welcome and thank you, Tiago!

 

Check him out side-by-side with "Sneaker Steve" Patiño and Sean "Paper Chasr" Williams, here!
