While abroad, I stumbled upon a hidden vintage shop with my friends in the Marais district of Paris. In it, I bought a 30 euro vintage bag that ended up being one of my favorite accessories that I treasure. I constantly asked myself, why can I only find affordable, cute bags in hole in the wall markets and vintage stores? Fast forward a year, and 2020 hits, AKA the worst year in history. I had taken fashion design classes since I was 10 years old and always knew I wanted to work in the industry. Having just graduated college, entering the fashion industry seemed like a daunting task. Nonetheless, I kept thinking back to my vintage bag from Paris and my desire to find similar bags in contemporary brands. Thus, the concept for MR Label came to fruition.
