VANESSA HARPER is a new luxury brand in the formative stages of development which cares deeply about our customers and what we do. While the company is currently small, and independent work is crucial, we run on a sense of teamwork and a shared mission. We respect tradition, but are not afraid to look at things differently in order to improve them. We are passionate about creating a brand that is reliably fresh, yet classic. Similarly, our design aesthetic which is feminine with an edge is also modern and timeless. The line consists of Women's RTW Sportswear for the busy, but always well-dressed woman who needs a versatile wardrobe.
