One of the very best things about hosting/attending Fashion’s Night Out in NYC this year was discovering fresh young talents who are continuing to push boundaries with their work. That said, I fell completely in love with Michelle Vale, who kicked off her handbag line in 2006. Beautifully crafted, utterly luxurious and boldly beautiful, Miss Michelle’s pieces are just what every gal dreams about.

She explains that the inspirations behind her amazing line as evolving out of her commitment to quality design and the deep love she has for her hometown.

“We are proud to be one of a very small handful of designers who are made in New York City,” she says, “This has always been and will always be very near to my heart. I am also proud that we offer women the unique ability to completely customize their own look by offering hardware components in both silver and gold. Our collection allows women to modify the color of hardware they want to wear on their bag and to change the way it is carried at any given moment. With fashion moving to a more polished and elegant look, the perfect bag now exists to help define that image.”

You go girl!

I took a trip down to Michelle’s showroom to see the gorgeous green purse (I have been admiring), for myself! Check out Michelle Vale’s delicious accessories! You will NOT be sorry.
