Mary Norton, the award winning accessory designer, is back to her creative roots under her new brand Moo Roo Renew.  The design darling that put Charleston on the map for luxury accessories is no stranger to building a business on limited resources and wild creativity.  Her story begins with making handbags on her dining room table to getting it on the arms of Hollywood A-listers such as Sharon Stone, Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Cameron Diaz, and Halle Berry just to name a few.  The Moo Roo brand exploded on the scene and her flagship store on King Street in the early 2000’s was a chic boutique filled with her whimsical designs.

Mary Norton’s new concept of Moo Roo Renew is all about vintage up-cycling and explores elements of design in home decor and furniture as well as accessories.  She finds unwanted items and turns them into covetable, one of a kind pieces with her Moo Roo twist.  When you visit her studio on the second floor of 439 King Street, you immediately feel at home with the eclectic mix of furniture and accessories.  Reilly (Roo),  is one of her daughters who inspired the name of the brand and is the face of her new look book as shown here.  Everything has come full circle for Mary Norton as she rebuilds her business and her hopes for the future.

Necklaces and “The Bachelorette” bag $275 by Moo Roo Renew // Dress by For Love and Lemons $256 from Mosa Boutique PH: 843-212-5853 // Head scarf and ring $118 from The Hidden Countship PH:843-577-5570
