Isabella Fiore represents the art of subtle contradiction between the past and current, and the expected and unexpected. Designed with the Isabella Fiore woman in mind, the collections embody a carefree, spontaneous, hip, and inspired individual, who relishes a bohemian lifestyle. Similarly, pieces are elegant but understated; they are often vibrantly colored and made from hand woven leather, original artwork, beading and embroidery with materials imported from all over the globe. The designs are fun, feminine but always presented in a sophisticated and luxurious way.
The inspiration behind Isabella Fiore was born from a rebellious spirit with bohemian roots. Almost immediately after debuting, the collection received overnight success. In 2001, the designers were nominated for the CDFA Perry Ellis Award for Excellence as well as the Designer of the Year Award from the Accessories Council.
Isabella Fiore was the first brand to create a contemporary handbag niche within the marketplace. For the first time, consumers were able to purchase a designer handbag at an affordable price. Gracing the pages of publications such as Instyle, People Style Watch, Lucky, Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue and Elle, Isabella Fiore established itself as one of the most successful contemporary handbag brands on the market early on and has only advanced on this notion over the years.
Isabella Fiore has been a favorite among celebrity fashion icons such as Katherine Heigl, Kate Bosworth, Jennifer Garner and Kate Hudson, whom the designs have been spotted on. Today, Isabella Fiore is owned by parent company Artisan House, helmed by Steve Russo, maintaining the artistic heritage while continuing to evolve the collection forward.
