Our Founder

Rossina, a Peruvian-born immigrant and founder of this female-owned business, is living her American dream. Arriving in New York with her family in 1985, she sought a better life and seized the opportunity to design for renowned fashion houses. Years later, Rossina embraced veganism, which transformed her perspective on animals and the environment. Motivated by this shift, she embarked on a mission to introduce sustainable alternatives to the fashion industry. In February 2022, Rossina officially launched Vannesa Rossi, offering modern designs that prioritize premium sustainable materials. Today, she resides in Queens, NY, driven by her unwavering commitment to make a positive impact and revolutionize the harmful aspects of the fashion industry.


Our Materials

Vannesa Rossi offers designs and materials of the highest quality, comparable to luxury genuine leather bags, but with a crucial distinction: our commitment to environmental and animal welfare. Through diligent exploration, we have discovered innovative alternatives to traditional leather, such as recyclable fibers and biomaterials derived from plants like cacti and apples. Every product in our brand is guaranteed to be 100% cruelty-free and sustainable. The meticulous process involved in creating these biomaterials adds value, ensuring that you receive the finest sustainably sourced materials for your collection. Our goal is to offer cruelty-free, sustainable alternatives, without any toxic chemicals, phthalates, and PVC.
