By: Valerie Milano
Los Angeles, California (The Hollywood Times) 10/28/2017 – “I’m a little obsessed with all of them!” admits the accomplished designer and creative director behind the Gretchen Christine brand – a fashion and beauty solutions company recently acquired by Dastmalchi LLC (http://dastmalchi.com/), a vertically integrated company.
Gretchen Christine Rossi unveils her long-awaited ‘À la Rentrée’ fall handbag collection featuring vegan leather and plush details that align with Rossi’s mission to provide chic and affordable eco-friendly accessories. Combining fashion with function, the ‘À la Rentrée’ line fits effortlessly into everyday life.
The on-trend bags (Adriana, Celeste, Devin, Jami, Jordyn, and Kelsey) feature interchangeable, reversible guitar straps adorned with edgy gold studs, sophisticated floral applique, accent tassels, and cosmopolitan snakeskin embellishments to take your look to the next level. And the cleverly designed Cassandra coin/credit purse ($49) should be GREAT for Christmas gifts!
Rossi uses cork-based vegan materials with the supple look and buttery feel of genuine leather for this collection as a statement for not utilizing animal byproducts—a direct reflection of Gretchen’s huge heart for animals and the environment. Finally!
About Gretchen Christine Rossi and the Gretchen Christine Collection:
Gretchen Christine Rossi is a former real estate agent turned entrepreneur who starred on the reality television series THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY. Michigan born, Gretchen grew up in La Crescenta, California and majored in Psychiatry at Baylor University in Dallas, Texas.
The Gretchen Christine Collection emerged as a way to help all women look and feel their best. The line exemplifies Gretchen’s creative talent and love for fashion.
The collection is part of Rossi’s ever-expanding empire that includes Gretchen Christine cosmetics, hair tools, jewelry, luggage, swim and home décor. The collection carries forward Rossi’s vision to offer the highest quality fashion and beauty solutions at affordable prices, because every woman deserves to “look ‘Red Carpet’ ready without paying ‘Red Carpet’ prices.”
Rossi has been greatly inspired in business by Kathy Ireland, the California-based former SPORTS ILLUSTRATED swimsuit model turned mogul who now commands a net worth in excess of $500 million. Like Rossi, Ireland designs an affordable line of vegan leather handbags.
Who wants to be a millionaire? Not Gretchen! She would rather be a BILLIONAIRE like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, Kathy Ireland’s key associates.
Like Kathy Ireland, Gretchen makes her first appointment of the day with God. This keeps her grounded for the conflicts and compromises she must face constantly in the world of commerce. Building her Gretchen Christine brand gives her the passion to keep waking up in the morning and working with purpose.
