The Re-birth of Laurese NY
In June 2003, proud parents DeVaughn and Lerma Edwards welcomed their first child, a beautiful daughter named Faith Laurese Edwards. In December 2004, Laurese NY handbags became one of few African-American owned handbag brands. Laurese NY instantly became a hot item after being selected to participate in the Billboard Music Awards by providing handbags as part of the swag awarded to celebrity attendees. As the family increased, the brand was placed on a hiatus. But now, as if rising from the ashes like the Phoenix, the brand is re-launching. Paying tribute to the generations of their African ancestors, Laurese NY will soon introduce the Black Beauty collection! This collection is designed by a world-class artist, inspired by Ghanian Kente cloth and each is handmade using only natural plant-based material.
