Valerie Vittu, a French Parisian came to the USA in 1994, with an artistic background degree. After 5 years at Alain Mikli on Madison Avenue, she opened MargotCamille Optique in Philadelphia in 2005 and created her collection of fine eyewear, exclusively hand made in France. When she came across some fabric from European textile designer Manuel Canovas, it brought back fond memories of growing up in France. She then decided to make a limited edition of bags and accessories immediately loved by her clientele. She recently has chosen Red Bank, NJ as her new Summer home.
