Since moving to Southern California, I have met some really inspirational people, and Mary Myers is certainly one of them.
Designer, mother and super woman; she is the master mind behind “Novella Royale”.
Novella Royale was inspired by the concept of designing luxury handbags without creating waste from new materials. The leather from each bag is hand cut from vintage jackets, making each piece a one-of-a-kind in color, distressing and seaming. In addition to using only recycled leather, each bag is lined with organic fabric, and is hand made in Los Angeles.
I got the chance to shoot her Spring Summer 2010 range.
