It's 10 years since the opening of Piazza Della Sole, and we've won best shoe store in Essex County for the last 2 years! PDS started with the notion that shoes don't have to be uncomfortable to look great. Over the years we have brought in many brands, some recognizable, some obscure but all with that idea in mind. Coupled with some fabulous handbags and accessories, PDS makes your shopping experience memorable.
Established in 2004.
Camille L.Kessler, owner, grew up in the fashion industry and later earned a BA in Design and Fashion from Montclair State University. She spent 10 years as an interior designer before deciding to change direction. She opened Piazza Della Sole in 2004 with a vision for fashionable comfortable shoes for all "walks" of life. From casual to dressy, with a range in prices, there is something for women of all ages. She is constantly searching for new and exciting brands to keep up with today's savvy shoppers.
Meet the Business Owner
Camille L. Kessler has been a resident of Montclair for 36 years. 10 years ago, after deciding that the area needed a women's shoe store, she came up with the concept of a store....."where fashion and comfort meet". She understood that women were tired of wearing shoes that just didn't feel good. She researched brands and came up with a perfect formula for beautiful fashionable footwear and great handbags to go with them. She continues to be actively involved with the business on a day to day basis, as well as being committed to serving in the community that she loves.
