M Z Wallace was founded in January 2000 by Monica Zwirner and Lucy Wallace Eustice in New York City. Having each spent many years in the fashion industry, both women were looking to establish their own businesses. Lucy had been the Senior Accessory Editor of Harpers Bazaar, and Accessory Director of Elle. Monica traveled the world, styling advertising campaigns and editorial for leading brands and international magazines. After a fortuitous meeting at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, Monica and Lucy reconnected and realized they were both interested in bringing their experience and ideas on design to fruition with their own accessory company. They decided to join forces.
The defining spirit of the M Z WALLACE brand is quality, style, integrity, and refined sophistication. Years after its inception, M Z WALLACE is well on its way to becoming an American classic.
