My friend, Mark is a talented graphic designer and has taken some of his designs and brought them to life via custom made bags.
His artwork showcases his attention to detail of the human form, notably women of his past and present. Each of his pieces are done with heart, his view of ethereal beauty, and exude a dreamlike quality. I have been one of his biggest fans since the beginning when I met him in college.
He’s such a talented artist, he even made me into a comic book character one year for my birthday. I cried. Yes people, I am a comic book nerd (and I really do have super powers, seriously).
I love, love, love bags and shoes! I feel like a great bag and a fabulous pair of shoes can make an ensemble and make you feel like a new person. I came back from this last trip to New York with a huge suitcase full of clothes from my own closet and another filled with shoes AND bags. Jarno was like, “Really baby?!” But yet, I still feel as though I have nothing to wear!
Some of the bags that I own feel like they weight close to 10 lbs just in leather and hardware alone. Mark’s muz bags are fantastic because they are all light-weight and can be used every day but are also pieces of art. He gave me one this past year for my birthday that is made of a canvas material called hercules, it is big enough for an every day bag and is reversible satin on the other side - so I feel like I’ve got two bags in one. I use it all the time for my errands, it weighs next to nothing, but holds everything I need and more, plus, no one else has it!

Mark also has a few other bags, not to mention he’s in the works with scarves, t-shirts, and hoodies. He can also custom make bags as well.
