Born and reared in the Midwest (Minneapolis, to be exact), Scott Nelson came to New York in the 1980’s with a passion for fashion and style. After traveling to Paris with his partner Alex Papachristidis, Scott bought an elephant hair bracelet, which after time needed rejuvenation. The piece was from Bry and Co, a business that had disappeared after 250 years. Seeing an opportunity in the marketplace, Scott was able to source the hair from the South African government and donate a portion of the proceeds to help combat poaching.
From that meaningful elephant hair bracelet, his designs evolved into a line of clutches, handbags and accessories. Today, Scott’s exquisite pieces are highly sought after and appreciated for their quality.
