Founder, Former Ceo of MP & starting new venture

Lana Hopkins is the Founder of Mon Purse, the world’s first design-your-own leather handbag and accessories brand to scale mass customisation.

With the customer journey at the heart of everything they do, Mon Purse enables you to design and personalise your very own leather handbag and accessories using our custom 3D bag designer (with over 10 billion design combinations) crafted by generational European artisans.

Founded in early 2015 (beta in late 2014) by Lana Hopkins. The company was born out of Hopkins’ inability to find the kind of handbag quality and design to satisfy her. She saw an opportunity to create a disruptive model to provide fully customisable leather handbags that target the affordable luxury handbag market. Hopkins’ was previously at News Ltd, and a Founder of an e-commerce start-up which was sold prior to Mon Purse.

In June 2016, Mon Purse secured AUD $3.1 million in a series A capital raise, previously completing an angel round in July 2015, and a small seed round that occurred in mid-2014 to kick-start the business. The brand counts a significant handful of Australian and International high net worth individuals as investors
