AHHH this just happened (well a week ago it happened). When mark. invited me to their super exclusive Rebecca Minkoff mark. Delight Bag Launch in the Mondrian Soho I nearly died.
She was one of the most genuinely nice people I've ever met & I loved hearing her story of how she made it as a designer, branded herself & got where she is today! She is a true self made entrepreneur. She really inspired me and is a true testament that if you put your heart into what you are doing that the sky is the limit!
Check out below some of my favorite words of wisdom Rebecca shared during her interview.
Seriously the most amazing bag you can get for $60!
WHY get a designer knockoff when you can get a designer COLLABORATION??

"I think that it takes persistence, a passion, and knowing that there's nothing to fall back on." on her starting her business
"Not everyone can afford to buy a handbag and I wanted to offer them something"
"I think that's the currency that we deal in, this social interaction" referring to her social media presences
"Our girl is a downtown romantic. She either lives downtown or wants to live downtown."
"If you can't walk in the shoes in your apartment, don't leave the house in them." ~ quote to live by!! lol
