Debbie Brooks Purses
Debbie Brooks evokes the emotions of excitement and adventure of everyday indulgences and transforms them brilliantly into collectable works of art. Her colorful, whimsical scenes remind us of a place we often wish we could be, uniquely captured in a way that only her personal style and sense of humor can do. Setting the trend, she has translated her internationally collected gallery Pop artworks into a sophisticated and sassy evening and handbag collection with quite a celebrity following.
Debbie Brook graduated from the prestigious Pratt Institute of New York and attended the Royal Academy of Copenhagen where she developed her unique personal style, drawing from real life subject matter. After several years working as a design director for Disney, Warner Bros., Nickelodeon, Universal Studios, and F.A.O. Schwarz, she decided to launch her own collection, transitioning from traditional canvas to her 3-D medium, and then to furniture.
The first product she created was a handbag for her own use. It was so well received, she launched her line in November of 2002 at New York’s 5th Avenue Henri Bendels. She has since created custom corporate collectable limited edition handbags for The Tony Awards, Elton John for CAESARS, The Four Seasons, and was most recently selected by the Olympic Committee to be the official female pop artist of the 2004 Summer and 2006 Winter Olympics. Her limited edition charitable collections have raised thousands and include The Avon Foundation, UCP, MDA, Make-A-Wish, Dress for Success and others.
Debbie has attracted an impressive list of clientele including, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Britney Spears, Renee Zellweger, Michelle Pfeiffer, Marisa Tomei, and Patti LaBelle. Her artworks and handbags have also been featured on CNN, The Today Show, CBS, ABD, Extra, Inside Edition, E Style, People Magazine, Lucky, Vive, Ocean Drive, and Hamptons Magazine. Her purses can be found exclusively at Beckner Jewelry & Repairs in Naples and Ave Maria.
