Designed in New York City and produced in Italy, Mansur Gavriel was founded by Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel in 2012. Mansur and Gavriel met in 2010 by chance in Los Angeles. Mansur had a Rhode Island School of Design diploma under her belt, and Gavriel had already started her career in fashion while interning at European fashion houses such as Lanvin and completing her fashion degree at the University of the Arts in Bremen. Despite the distance, the duo kept in touch and intended to join forces with fashion entrepreneurship.
Their signature bag, sold out many times over, is a drawstring bucket bag seen hanging off the shoulders off celebrities as much as European and American youth. Mansur Gabriel delivers luxury and craftsmanship at a price point that allows it to be accessed and loved by many.
