Designer Bio

A native to New York City, Monica Botkier delved into the fashion industry in 2003. Working as a fashion photographer Monica was on the brink of becoming the internationally recognized accessories designer she is today. Using her developed photographer’s eye for detail, artistry and key functionality, Monica took on a new niche in the fashion industry. Inspired by her urban chic and busy downtown Manhattan lifestyle, Monica designed and produced her first handbag collection that resulted in the immediate cult status. Monica continues her passion for photography by shooting the Botkier ad campaigns each season thus bringing her vision full circle. Remaining true to her brand philosophy of creating the ideal, Monica fearlessly embarks on bringing the brand to the next level, consistently introducing custom materials, designs and tackling new markets. For Spring 2008, in celebration of Botkier’s five-year anniversary, Monica launched an extensive collection of footwear. Gracing the pages of high end fashion magazines such as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle and LUCKY, Botkier has established itself as a major contender in the footwear arena. In July of 2007, Monica was recognized for her contributions to the world of accessory design and became a member of the esteemed Council of Fashion Designers of America. In January 2010, after searching for the right location and space, Botkier opened a flagship store in New York’s chic NoLIta district. The space was designed in a collaboration between Monica Botkier and interior designer Valerie Pasquiou to exude the unique and edgy downtown sophistication that is Botkier. A palette of warm grays, copper infused purples, sexy blacks and custom metallic accents create a modern luxe atmosphere. A favorite among celebrity fashion icons, Botkier handbags have been spotted in tow of many of the most recognized women in the world; Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Beyonce, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, and Kate Bosworth, to name a few. Botkier has established a devoted fan base in the US and around the world. Each season the Botkier collections have a continued success with respected stores such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. [READ MORE]
