In 1978, Vince Camuto co-founded the Nine West Group Inc., and served as its creative director. In 1993 he was appointed CEO as the company was taken public. In 1999, Nine West was sold to Jones Apparel Group.

In August 2001, Camuto established Camuto Group, which provides design, sourcing, marketing and production services retailers. The following year he launched four footwear brands for Dillard’s Department Stores, including Antonio Melani, Gianni Bini, Nurture and Michelle D. Later that year, he acquired the footwear licenses for BCBG Max Azria and BCBGirls. In 2005 he launched his namesake footwear line, Vince Camuto. Closely thereafter in 2006, he partnered with Tory Burch to launch her footwear collection and collaborated with her to create the Reva ballet flat. In 2009 the company added Lucky Brand Jeans footwear and kensiegirl footwear to its portfolio and later launched a handbag collection.

In 2005, Camuto purchased the master license for Jessica Simpson.
