Born in San Francisco’s Bay Area, Marc Bernstein’s love of nature became apparent from a very early age. As a very young child, he loved to fashion little dolls out of mud which he then placed in the freezer to harden as clay would in a kiln.
Yet, it was not until 2001 while working in fashion photography in New York City, when Marc’s talent for fashion accessory design blossomed. Known for his urban-chic designs, custom shades of Gold, and culturally inspired inspiration, Marc combines the most supple and luxurious leathers with distinctive, unique hardware. An uncommon attention is placed on the handmade quality and refinement of each piece, making each accessory special and one-of-a-kind. Old world tradition combined with a new world edge.
His work has been featured worldwide in publications including Vogue, German Vogue, Italian Vogue, Elle and Allure, and is sold at the world’s most avant-garde, fashion retailers including: Barneys CO-OP, Joyce, Lane Crawford, Harvey Nichols, and Selfridges.
