SISTER EPIC is a conceptual handbag brand designed for functional life + the intentional collector. Bringing art to life through beautifully crafted handbags, our handmade pieces are constructed and designed in Pittsburgh, PA. We believe personal style is a reflection of this inner beauty and our appreciation for it -- in all shapes and forms - starts from this foundation. Our existence is dedicated to this poetic, everyday beauty. This inspiration and a balanced influence of geometry, minimalism vs maximalism, and captivating textures are integrated into our capsule collections. Our materials are hand-selected and sourced from the most ethical partners from around the world.


Adrienne Guariglia is the principal designer and founder of SISTER EPIC. The Chicago-native received her BFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Her completion of the highly-esteemed Fashion Program instilled in her a balanced understanding of conceptual design and technical garment construction. It was within the production of her final collection that her love of working with non-traditional textures & silhouettes was discovered. ‍After many years spent in the corporate world of retail display design and visual merchandising, Guariglia felt the need to redirect her creative energy into a project of her own. Giving in to the pull toward change, she followed her heart and moved to Pittsburgh. There, in December of 2018, she launched SISTER EPIC. Guariglia’s love of minimalist lines, eye-catching textures, rich colors and timeless designs are elements woven through every SISTER EPIC piece. Her designs are meant to amplify personal style without compromising functionality.
