Moni Moni's beginnings stem from the rich, creative background of designer Cinzia Moniaci. We invite you to share Cinzia's memories as we begin a blog series and journey through how this celeb-loved handbag company came to be!
Born and raised in Italy, Cinzia moved out to Southern California in 1997 and started her new life as a journalist and songwriter/performer. By 2002, her personal style, love for design and skillful creativity was given a big push when she won a scholarship to FIDM - but she didn't stop there!
"After being a fashion, music and entertainment correspondent for several magazines, here I am at the California Mart in the L.A. Fashion District. This is my official first step into the fashion business - SO exciting!"
Little did Cinzia know, this would be a threshold she would never forget, as she and a friend went on to open a showroom at the California Mart, importing high-end European designer accessories and reaching a worldwide market! Knowing what the market demanded as well as establishing her niche, her heart for design took over and Moni Moni was born. Now, as we see celebs like Halle Berry taking her Dolce Vita bag everywhere or Jessica Alba with her Splendor, we realize that Moni Moni isn't just a unique designer handbag -- it's a lifestyle that reflects the creative, yet effortless philosophy and style of Cinzia Moniaci!
