ALLISON MITCHELL is an emerging handbag label designing and producing pieces made from exotic textiles, hides, and skins. The statement brand offers purposeful designs in unique shapes in unexpected materials and colors. The designer creates artful pieces meant to give a voice to the exciting, complex, compelling parts of every woman's personality and personal style. For the self-empowered woman who needs no one's permission, there is ALLISON MITCHELL.
The brand began to hit its stride after the collection’s namesake designer was awarded the prestigious RISING STAR AWARD FOR ACCESSORIES at New York-based Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Awards event in 2017. She was cited as having her “finger on the pulse of what is new and missing in the luxury leather goods market.”
As the founder of a digital marketing agency in Dallas, Texas, Mitchell did not intend to pursue a career in the fashion industry. It was her desire for a statement, oversized clutch that led her to crafting her own, and soon, demand went beyond friends and family to a buyer from a local luxury boutique. Allison launched her namesake label and never looked back.
Within two years of her launch, Mitchell’s bags were featured on influencers such as Jane Aldridge, Courtney Tropp, and actress Birgitte Hjort Sorensen. Within four years, ALLISON MITCHELL launched with Neiman Marcus-owned luxury department store, Bergdorf Goodman.
All bags are manufactured and finished by hand in New York City. Mitchell personally sources all materials from around the world, and she only works with tanneries that practice sustainability and regulation. ALLISON MITCHELL welcomes all questions, comments, concerns, and thoughts about sustainability and ethics in fashion.
