"The perfect black leather handbag does exist"
Ask any woman (or man with a penchant for classic style) and they'll tell you the perfect black bag is a wardrobe essential.
One that can go effortlessly from the office to night, match with everything you own and feels comfortable to wear, while ticking the style box too, is often hard to come by. It's an elusive buy and one that was felt hard by Melbourne-based, former PR superstar, Monica Tarca.
Monica Tarca, the woman responsible for the "perfect black bag" of your dreams (Vestirsi)
Instead of complaining about the sartorial struggle she decided to do something about it.
She hopped a plane to Italy, sourced a local leather manufacturer and created her very own range of black (only) bags — that also give back — called Vestirsi (Italian for: to get dressed).
Of course that's the shortened version of Monica's tale. 
Monica was determined to fill the gap in her wardrobe and it turns out there are a lot of women worldwide who were also on the hunt for the perfect black bag, as her fast-selling collection — that officially launched in September — suggests. 
But her black bags — that come in every size and shape you could ever want — aren't just about filling a gap in the market. It's also about raising money for mental health.
