The Original Hat Box - An Iconic Accessory for the Jetsetter Bride

Copy Link

Are you dreaming about the ideal way to accentuate your fabulous wedding ‘fit? We caught up with Joy Proctor and Maria Caruso-Martin of The Bella Rosa Collection as they launch the first piece in their luxury, capsule collection, The Original Hat Box – the perfect accessory for the chic bride that loves to travel!

As two champions of female advocacy, Joy Proctor and The Bella Rosa Collection are honored to share a collection born through the journey of creating something for women, by women.

Their first product, The Original Hat Box is a vintage-inspired hat box made of white genuine leather with an elegant embossed tag. Crafted for women on the go, the Hat Box is specially designed to keep the utmost prized possessions safe during sophisticated adventure – wherever your love may take you.

Consciously created, this vintage-yet-modern fashion accessory is offered in limited quantities, with a goal to slow the fashion cycle, minimize waste, and reduce overproduction. Maria Caruso-Martin shares, “creating a handbag to last the test of time to be passed on to the next generation is the heart and soul of The Bella Rosa Collection,” and she’s committed to incorporating that mission and craftsmanship in all of her future collections and collaborations.


In 1952, Maria Caruso-Martin – Founder of The Bella Rosa Collection – lost her grandmother when an American Airline plane crashed into her father’s family home. The only surviving possession amongst the rubble was her grandmother’s handbag with a single letter inside – one that had been written in 1919 by Maria’s grandfather. In the letter, her grandfather asks Maria’s grandmother to await his return from service in the Italian army, so they could marry. Maria’s grandmother carried this letter in her handbag every day of her life.

Amidst great loss, a true love story endures, inspiring Maria to create The Bella Rosa Collection, a bespoke handbag collection that offers brides and fashionable women a luxury, tailored experience to design a one-of-a-kind handbag for their treasured love notes or keepsakes.

Once featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show for her personal wedding style, Founder and Creative Director Maria shares, “your clutch is an extension of your dress, an extra piece of jewelry for the most important moments of your life.”


Joy Proctor is one of the most sought-after wedding designers in the world. Joy believes in hand selecting the very best artisans to execute her vision, truly perfecting understated – but intentional – décor. Her product collaborations and features have earned her global recognition in the wedding and events industry.
