Foley + Corinna
We love Foley+Corinna, not only because of their handbag designs (which are amazing), but also because of the story behind the brand.
A story of two strong women, who met by chance, defeated the odds and became a very successful brand. When they started in 1999 neither one knew much about how to design or run a business. We can’t resist their classic FC Lady and newer silhouette Tight Rope Satchel. Foley+Corinna designs transition effortlessly from day to night, season to season, downtown to the red carpet and right into the after party. It’s the perfect mix of sophistication, fun and function for the chic city women. Every piece makes a statement.
The Foley+Corinna story begins with the chance meeting of two girls who shared a love of all things fabulous at the Chelsea Art and Antique Market. Dana Foley sold her original creations while Anna Corinna sold her expertly curated vintage clothing. Each had acquired a cult following of downtown fashionistas and established designers who found inspiration in their style.
Dana and Anna quickly realized the synergy of their design and eye for trends resulting in a potent blend of style. In 2008 the fashion world took notice and invited Dana and Anna to join the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Today the brand can be found on its eponymous website and worldwide from New York to Chile to Japan and carried in such stores as Bloomingdale’s, Saks, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom’s. On Foley+Corinna’s resume are features and editorials in top fashion magazines like InStyle, Elle, Nylon, Lucky, Vanity Fair, and Teen Vogue. The Label is a natural choice of Hollywood and music style icons, including Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, Katy Perry, Drew Barrymore, Leighton Meester, Kim Kardashian, Carrie Underwood, and Blake Lively. This is the Foley+Corinna brand – sometimes sexy, sometimes understated, but always striking.
