We are SO excited to finally reveal this beautifully unique handbag that we had the honor of co-designing and creating with an equally amazing and beautiful woman - Jennifer Jairdullo. Jennifer was literally one of our very first clients back in 2010 when she was running her custom clothing business and when we were just getting our feet wet in this crazy world of fashion and entrepreneurship. Her belief in Mel's vision was the much needed confidence boost needed at the time, and for that we are forever grateful!
Soon after the two met, Jennifer unfortunately became very ill and spent the next five years in a wheel chair, unable to walk, use her hands or talk. But with the love and support of family and friends, a stem cell transplant and a deep desire to prove doctors wrong that she was past the point of recovery, Jennifer is miraculously walking, talking and designing a custom handbag again.
We simply cannot do her story justice in this short blog post, and so we encourage you to click here -> to hear more on how she is thriving in gratitude and presence.
Reconnecting with Jennifer has filled our heart with so much joy, and we look forward to sharing more on her incredible journey and the lessons we can all take away from it in future videos and blog posts, so stay tuned!!
