Au Mexique is a luxe—yet accessible— leather accessory brand that blends the elegant beauty of Mexico with the independent spirit of Texas.
Originally from Paris, Texas, Stephanie Harrison recently launched her first collection of leather handbags that are handcrafted in Mexico.
By a fluke in 2005, Stephanie ended up doing an exchange program in Xalapa, Mexico, a trip that would forever change the course of her life. After graduating college from Southern Methodist University, she sold designer clothes and accessories at Intermix so that she could save up enough money to move to Mexico and pursue the offbeat path in life.
In 2012, Stephanie started her fashion and lifestyle blog called I Showed Up in Boots as a creative outlet and as way to stay involved in the fashion community. Even still, she wasn´t completely satisfied and wanted to fulfill an even bigger dream: to share Mexico´s exquisiteness with the rest of the world through fashion.
After meeting with various leather vendors in Mexico and taking a design course in New York, Stephanie founded Au Mexique. Her designs are inspired by Mexico, her Texas roots, current trends, and her travels.
