Allison Mitchell, best known for her eponymous brand of oversized luxury clutches, was awarded the coveted Fashion Gallery International Rising Star Accessory Award at Cipriani 42nd Street on Thursday afternoon. The Rising Star Awards are the group’s 20th annual and remain focused on celebrating emerging talent in the areas of fashion, beauty, and related industries for their innovation and creativity in their respective realm. This historic event brought forth the who’s who in the fashion industry including Prabal Gurung, Bobbi Brown and Aerin Lauder. Oscar winning actress Whoopi Goldberg delivered the keynote address as well as some comic relief for the up-and-coming talent.
Allison Mitchell handbags are crafted from animal skins and hides from around the world. Lined in seasonal picks from the designer, the minimalist brand offers a polished, deconstructed look that makes a statement with unique shapes and exceptional materials. With a keen sense of design and culture, Mitchell sources materials from all over the globe; leathers from Italy, hides from South Africa and France, and skins from Brazil. Allison Mitchell handbags represent the raw gorgeous spirit that drives the Avant-Garde, the courageous, and the fearless.
On February 9th, Allison Mitchell will reveal her Fall/Winter 2017 collection at her New York Fashion Week presentation and trunk show. This is a globally curated collection of the highest quality of skins and hides, presenting an edit of luxury handbags and accessories. The showing will take place at 3pm at The Emmanuel Fremin Gallery, 547 W 27th Street, Suite 510, NYC.
