LINNETTE is the creation of Miami-based Linnette Leon-Vega. Influenced by her Cuban and Dominican heritage, Leon-Vega’s beginnings in the rough-and-tumble world of fashion began in an organic manner. Shattered by her mother Lourdes’ multiple sclerosis diagnosis during her last semester of college, Leon-Vega fired up her sewing machine to decompress and disconnect. Much to Linnette’s utter surprise, she found herself passionately designing handbags and drawing inspiration from her grandmother Silvia and sister Alexa who are the muses of her debut collection, La Genesi.
