Initially launched as a trend boutique in November 2017, Island to East Side has found its niche as a custom handbag brand. Through partnerships with other national brands, fashion bloggers, and established retailers, Island to East Side has grown / developed into a lifestyle brand offering products and gifts for women of all ages for any occasion.
Christina Carmona took her passion and degree in Fashion Merchandising and Business Management to work with major fashion brands as a Sales Executive. Despite her successful career, Christina aspired to exercise her creativity in her own venture outside the corporate world.
After moving from Staten Island to the East Side of Manhattan, Christina decided to fulfill her entrepreneurial dreams and execute her vision of curating a unique shopping experience… You guessed it, Island to East Side was born.
Christina is extremely hands on with her design and concierge services and enjoys helping her customers create the perfect accessory that screams their name, literally.
Her modern twist on a classic handmade accessory translates into beautiful, wearable art. Christina’s favorite thing about ITES bags is that they can be created by the wearer to manifest endlessly possible unique combinations.
