Style & Quality
Courtney’s creative influence is drawn from her upbringing in Charlotte, NC and an obsession with raw reptile and leather skin over the years. She honed her finely tuned southern sophisticates -meets-classic urban diaspora aesthetic through her grandfather’s leather store in NYC. In 2016, she began experimenting with raw exotics skins customizing the durability and weight for creation of long lasting luxury products. Her first luxury collections is where Courtney experimented with bright color dyes creating a more fresh approach to luxury that fits in the everyday life for all ages.
