Marie Turnor is
MARIE TURNOR ACCESSORIES is a Los Angeles based handbag and accessories company designed by Beth Goodman. The classic style of MARIE TURNOR embraces timelessness and eschews trendiness in the spirit of finding beauty in everyday things: a paper bag, an envelope, folded paper, the colors of nature... The essence of the brand lies in the realization that practical things are also beautiful.
MARIE TURNOR ACCESSORIES is committed to quality and individuality. All products are made with pride by skilled crafts people locally in Southern California, reducing our carbon footprint, providing jobs to the community and enabling us to keep an eye on quality.
Designer, Beth Goodman was born in New York with an innate ability to make things beautiful. After studying art in London and fashion design at Fashion Institute of Technology, Beth started a lingerie company which won awards and was featured in the likes of Vogue and W magazines. Finding a need for more space and sunshine, Beth accepted a design position in Los Angeles and went on to become a wardrobe stylist in the advertising, music, and film world where she became known for classic, timeless and chic choices for her clients who have included Cameron Diaz, kd lang, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow and Richard Gere.
After spending time in France preparing for a retail venture, Beth was again drawn to her love of making things and MARIE TURNOR was born in 2009. The PICNIC clutch was conceived after spotting an elegant woman walking in the Marais with a paper bag in her hand. The IDEA bag was designed out of necessity after carrying samples in an Ikea bag. The DAY FOR NIGHT GROUP and THE AVION card case are modeled after a simple envelope.
Marie Turnor products can be found in boutiques in the US, internationally and online.
