Her name is Stephanie Voltaire; She is the owner and designer of V-Lure Designs by Voltaire. She’s an Haitian-American girl who loves God, to travel, shop, fashion, eat. She enjoys spending time engaging in activities to better myself; Stephanie the queen of self-care and she also loves spending time with my friends and family.
As a young girl, Stephanie grew up to a mother who knew how to sew and worked as a seamstress at times. Every time her mom sewed, she watched and assisted her mom in her work. Over time she learned how to sew from helping and watching her mom. Fast forward to approximately 18 years later, while in graduate school her roommate had a sewing machine and out of boredom she decided to bring back her skills and decided to make a clutch. Stephanie made two clutches, which she was very proud of and excited about; out of excitement she sent photos of the bags to her friends and family. She received great comments and feedback such as “Girl! Where did you get this from?” “Get me one.” “This bag is hot” and so on. After a few weeks of being happy with the clutches that she made, Stephanie decided to take a leap of faith and turned her hobby into a business and that is how V-Lure Designs was birthed.
Aside from being a handbag designer, she is a public health professional focusing on food insecurity, her work help those who are vulnerable to make the healthy choice the easier choice. She leads communications efforts to provide access to affordable and nutritious healthy food to those in need.
V-Lure Designs by Voltaire is a Boston based line of fashionable handbags.
In 2016, Stephanie experienced some depressing and heart breaking life-changing events. Through her times of sadness, Stephanie found some relief through social media! she found myself scrolling up and down FB and IG. Through her scrolling, she encountered MANY motivational quotes and memes that spoke to her situation, which encouraged her and lifted her spirits tremendously. After thinking and praying, she decided that she could use her handbags to encourage women, in the same way social media did for me. From this experience, “Bags with Purpose” was birthed! V-Lure Designs by Voltaire now includes a label with an inspirational scripture for encouragement. With each of her bags through Bags with Purpose her goal is to empower women ONE bag at a time!
