As a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, the creative genius behind Melie Bianco spent many days pulling together affordable looks on a very small budget. One thing learned during the experience was that a great accessory could carry nearly any outfit. While this was challenging at the time, it was ultimately what inspired Melie Bianco. A group of women that longed for a high-end handbag, but just couldn't put it in their budget, was the Melie Bianco focus. Melie Bianco aims to bring affordable luxury to the handbag market by using super-soft faux leathers, quality linings and hardwares.
