California-born, now New York-based designer Rebecca Minkoff grew up creating and sewing clothes. Since launching her line in 2001, Minkoff has become a leader in luxury handbags, accessories, and apparel. Her designs are playful, luxurious, and edgy, aimed to fit the everyday lifestyles of uptown and downtown girls.
Rebecca Minkoff saw great success early in her design career: First, with her wildly popular capsule collection of “I LoveNew York” tees in 2001, and again following the launch of her “Morning After Bag”—a.k.a. the MAB—in 2005. The real proof of her staying power, however, came over the following decade, as she parlayed her hit items into a full lifestyle brand, which includes everything from Rebecca Minkoff bags to jewelry and ready-to-wear.
