Claudia & Hanna Duncan
Hanna Duncan is the Co-Founder of Monarchessa, an online boutique offering sustainable, thoughtfully crafted accessories like handbags, scarves and more from talented global artisans.
After traveling the world with her mother, Claudia, and exploring and learning new cultures, Hanna and Claudia dreamed of connecting other women with the artisans they met on their adventures. Thus, Monarchessa was born.
With a passion for creativity and sustainable fashion, Hanna brings her fashion industry experience and eye for timeless pieces to Monarchessa. Prior to launching the brand, Hannah created a clothing capsule for designer GRAVITAS and has worked backstage at the Nashville Symphony Fashion Show for Carolina Herrera. She graduated with a major in Fashion Merchandising at Nashville’s Lipscomb University.
When she’s not studying or traveling the world in search of beautiful, handmade goods, you can find her spending time in nature, whether that's at the beach or paddle boarding.
