Makeup artist Shawn Burke who has worked for Vogue, Michael Kors and Vanity Fair, created the original prototypes of her makeup bags for her work on photoshoots and movie sets. Soon clients and fellow makeup artists were coveting the bags, crafted from leather and suede in vivid colorways. What began as a professional staple has quickly become the go-to accessory for both inside and out of the handbag.
Shawn Burke Ltd. officially launched in 2010 with longtime friend and colleague Camille Mason serving as Creative Director.
Founded on necessity of design and everyday glamour, Shawn Burke bags and accessories are designed and manufactured in California by master leather craftsmen.
