Our Founder

As a Peruvian-born immigrant living in the USA and founder of this female-owned business, Rossina is living her American dream. In 1985, Rossina came to New York with her family in search for a better life. Since then, she has had the opportunity to design for the top fashion houses in New York City. Many years ago, Rossina made the decision to become vegan; changing her perspectives on animals and the environment. This led her to create change by introducing sustainable alternatives to the fashion industry. In February 2021, she officially launched Vannesa Rossi, providing a modern design aesthetic using only premium sustainable materials. Today, Rossina resides in Queens, NY with a continued desire to make a difference in the world by helping to change a harm-causing fashion industry.


Our Materials

Like luxury genuine leather bags, Vannesa Rossi provides top quality to our designs and materials; just without causing harm to the environment or animals. We are diligently exploring innovative leather-like alternatives and fibers made of recyclable materials. Materials made entirely from plants like cacti and apples. Each product from our brand is guaranteed 100% cruelty-free and sustainable. The quality and delicate process it takes to create these biomaterials make them of high value; ensuring that you are receiving the best sustainable-sourced materials to add to your collection.
