My name is Shannon and I am the owner and designer of Sha’Lari Couture. With an Associate’s Degree in Fashion Merchandising and a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Marketing and Management, I have always had a keen eye for detail, a love of fashion, and a desire to design and to create.
From NonnahsStyle to Sha’Lari Couture
In September of 2011, NonnahsStyle was created. It all started with a part-hand/part-machine stitched reversible tote. To some, the idea was brilliant….to me, it was not enough. In the weeks to follow, my mother and I would peruse the aisles of fabric stores looking for “just the right” prints. A few months later, I was charged with the task of making a diaper bag. With a pattern, some fabrics, my sewing machine, my mother for guidance and many hours later, I somehow managed to create my very first diaper bag. To my surprise, the diaper bag was a hit. Little did I know, this diaper bag would be the catalyst of what would soon become Sha’Lari Couture and something even bigger than I could ever imagine. As I look back on the early years, I amazed at the fact that I have created over 300 diaper bags and have shipped them to 46 states and 7 countries.
Four years ago, I decided to take my business in a different direction. Instead of making fabric handbags and diaper bags, I decided to shift my focus toward working with leather and create leather handbags and accessories. I can honestly say the last nine years have been a wild ride, but I would not change it for the world.
From concept to design to finished product, Sha’Lari Couture offers a wide range of leather handbags and accessories that are handcrafted to perfection using only the finest leather and trims.
Sha’Lari Couture’s mission is to create handcrafted leather handbags and accessories that are both fashionable and functional.
