Similar to when we designed multiple handbags for the wedding weekend of Celebrity Stylist Micaela Erlanger, Micaela traveled to Milan for a special fitting with Versace where our team met with her to ensure the color match of her Vintage FW1995 Versace dress styled for one of her wedding events. Our talented team in Italy sourced the final color selection for Micaela’s bespoke clutch  in Florence, and Micaela was able to personally approve the satin. 

If this is the personalized approach you’re searching for, please get in touch with our team.


04. Handcrafted in Italy

Each clutch from The Bella Rosa Collection is handcrafted in Florence, Italy by the top craftsmen and artists. 

Maria Caruso-Martin shares, “After the design consultation, I present an approved hand sketch of the clutch to the craftsmen in Italy – featuring notes and dimensions, accompanied by inspiration photographs and mood boards. If custom fabric is needed, the Bella Rosa team will source the fabric and send a sample swatch board for the client to make the final material selection. Once finalized, CAD drawings and 3D color renders are provided for approval – which leads us to the production phase.” 

Each Bespoke bridal clutch is one of a kind, which in turn slows the fashion cycle and helps to minimize waste and reduce overproduction.




05. Fulfillment 

Each couture handbag is delivered within 6-8 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design. Full transparency and communication is provided throughout the process. We love sending sneak peeks throughout the design process, as we know how important a custom, luxury handbag truly is.
