Sorry we closed for such a long time. Moving is a huge undertaking. Glad to be back. Thanks for your compliments and purchases in the past.

As a young bride, I worked as a designer & a model in the garment center of NYC. My schooling, however, geared me for administration & I eventually worked for the government, although I always sewed for my home & children when they were toddlers & now for their homes. I am also a gourmet cook & have won many cooking contests in my younger days. As for our reputation as sellers on a web site, please check out our feedback at StudioSelene on our ebay store site. Selene has done lots of Custom orders in the past. For our ETSY shop, I am hoping to have Handbags & Tote bags made up & ready to ship, unless a special order request is to be put on Etsy especially for you.

Thank You for…

"NEWS UPDATE ON OUR SELENE HANDBAGS TOTE BAGS"

"Article reprinted and copyright Left Paw Press, LLC/AccoutrePets Magazine

Lauren Darr, Publisher of "AccoutrePets" Online magazine has featured a story on Selene's wonderful doggy handbags. Lauren has purchased one of Selene's FINE handbags. Below is article:

"What a fabulous find we found in high-end handbags by designer Selene K. Shine-Serio. The quality is beyond compare as she chooses only the best (and many times rarest) fabrics in the industry. The craftsmanship is impeccable. But beyond that (and more important to some), they look amazing- in the “everyone-wants-to-ask-about-it” kind of way.

It’s only been in recent years that Selene has offered her custom designs to pet lovers worldwide. And, the pet fashionistas at AccoutrePets are really glad she did! As a huge pug lover, I found her unique designs while doing a search on the internet. I came across a pug handbag that I just absolutely had to have.

I’ll be honest. I’m not the easiest person in the world on a bag of any sort. So, when I make an investment in a bag, it has to be “rugged.” This handbag has outlasted and outperformed so many others that have come before it. And, it’s the perfect size. It has room for two wallets, two checkbooks, my little reporter-style notebook, phone, sunglasses, and my ultra-cool compact laptop. The magnetic snap holds everything in so I don’t have to worry about losing anything. When I go to meetings, people are surprised that I can walk in without lugging a laptop case and purse. It makes life a LOT easier. Now, most gals out there are going to have much more feminine uses for it- which, it will surely be more than suited for.

Selene was nice enough to answer some questions for us so that we could get to know her a bit better. She has a great story…

Selene has a long history of working with fashion and fabrics. She learned originally how to sew from her mother and grandmother. From then, she had wonderful teacher take her under their wing to help teach her the ropes. Her ties to fashion then landed her in the heart of the fashion district in Manhattan where she learned many sewing techniques from her mother-in-law who then worked for a bathing suit manufacturer. Her husband owned an embroidery factory and tool & die manufacturing company, which also contributed to her knowledge on the art.

Selene has sewn not only items for pet fashion connoisseurs, but also costumes, apparel, and home decor. She commented, “I always loved to sew.” She has five (yes, FIVE) children and started making clothing and costumes for her four sons and one daughter when they were just toddlers.

She’s completely addicted to fabrics and creating original works of art- no matter what form it takes. Couple that with always being a dog and cat lover (she wanted to be a veterinarian at one point), and it makes for a wonderful pet fashion line of unique quality and style. Selene currently has a male Yorkie named Zachary and a Cavalier named Lexi- both of which are rescue dogs.

When asked about her thoughts on the pet fashion industry, Selene commented, “I think the Pet Fashion industry is on the rise and will always progress into better things for pets and their pet owners. People today appreciate the love they get from their pets and pets are more sophisticated than ever.”

Her creations for dog lovers come in several different breeds. Following are just a few."

Bichon Frise, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Cocker Spaniel, Corgi, Greyhound, Jack Russell, Poodle, Pug, Saluki, Schnauzer, West Highland White Terrier "Westie", Welsh Fox, Wheaton Terrier, Whippet, And many more!"
