A self-educated lover of aesthetics, designer Barbra Bui initially got her start in the literary field and soon translated her love of beauty through words into shapes, fits, and silhouette. Showcasing her eponymous line in 1987, Bui initially worked solely in leather, exotic skins and suede, eventually widening her design spectrum with each subsequent collection. Creating covetable footwear, accessories, and bijoux, Barbara Bui favors a laid-back elegance, sensual silhouettes, and luxurious materials all with a rock’n’roll attitude. This winning aesthetic combination makes Bui the go-to designer for A-listers like Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Emma Stone
