What started as a bet between Justice and Leslie Bessent to design the perfect pair of shoes sparked a passion for design that neither of them expected.
This couple shares a mutual agreement that women dress from the shoes up. Being both detail orientated and perfectionists, they set out to create the best women’s shoes to create memories in. This power couple of design and quality hopes you experience life to the fullest in their very intimate and personal brand, Agnes Bethel.
Agnes Bethel shoes are exclusive, hand- crafted from the best Italian leathers so you can walk with purpose, create memories and live authentically.
Agnes Bethel is a tribute to the core essence of whom my mother is and my dedication to her sacrifices to put her family first.
Agnes Bethel is a real women and a real muse. Mother of head designer Justice, she was an immigrant, hardworking, but always put together elegant woman. She came from the small island of Petite Martinique, Grenada, and there found her deep passion for making clothes and appreciation for fine clothes.
At age 22, Agnes left Grenada for the United States to pursue a fashion career with the hopes of owning her own fashion house. Life had other plans and her passions of becoming a fashion designer quickly shifted and her desire and focus became her family. From time to time Agnes Bethel continued to design and create on a smaller scale, never really getting an opportunity to showcase her talent to the world.
Her son and his wife have taken her inspiration and goals into this brand that carries her name is good fortune.
Pronounced Agnes (Beth – Elle), Justice & Leslie Bessent’s goal is to build a brand of diversity and inclusion. This husband and wife team nurtured Agnes Bethel to fill a void of new luxury heritage brands with family roots and life’s inspiration.
