Join me and Rebecca Minkoff as we chat about her bold move to New York at 18 to become a fashion designer after becoming interested in costume design in high school.
Rebecca worked for a fashion house for several years honing her skills and learning the ropes while she tinkered with launching her own brand. Luckily for her the designer she was working for noticed how deeply she’d dived into her own venture and pushed her out the door to start her own line.

More About Rebecca
An industry leader in accessible luxury handbags, accessories, footwear and apparel, Rebecca Minkoff’s playful and subtly edgy designs can be spotted around the world on young women and celebrities alike.
After developing an affinity for design while in the costume department in high school, Rebecca Minkoff moved to New York City at only 18 years old to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer.
In 2001, Rebecca designed a version of the “I Love New York” t-shirt as part of a five-piece capsule collection, which appeared on The Tonight Show and became an overnight sensation.
In 2005, Rebecca designed her first handbag, which she soon dubbed the “Morning After Bag,” a.k.a. the “M.A.B.” This iconic bag ignited Rebecca’s career as a handbag designer and inspired her “downtown romantic” themed designs in the years to come. Rebecca’s success was further enhanced by the support of her brother and the company’s CEO and co-founder, Uri Minkoff, who helped usher in and pioneer the company’s industry-leading social media efforts.
After four years of designing statement-making handbags and accessories with her trademark leathers, studs and edgy hardware, Rebecca returned to her roots of apparel design and introduced her first ready-to-wear collection in 2009.
Today, Rebecca Minkoff has developed into a global lifestyle brand with a wide range of
accessories, footwear, apparel, handbags, jewelry, and wearable tech. The brand is distributed in over 900 stores worldwide, with flagship stores in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles with Chicago slated to open this year. The brand also has free- standing stores in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Japan, and Korea.
Rebecca is an active member of the CFDA and supports multiple philanthropies including Jessica Seinfeld’s non-profit, Baby Buggy.
Rebecca is married to director Gavin Bellour and they reside in New York City with their son Luca and daughter Bowie.

How is your January going so far? How is the check list coming along? Just a reminder that it is totally cool and quite required (by me) to take full advantage of all holidays, Hallmark or Federal…..People are conditioned by the big box stores to expect a special sale and are just sitting there waiting for your email to show up and make them an offer they can't refuse. Really!!!
