Victoire Focx

Constance Victory Small is an accessory designer and model with ten years of experience in the fashion industry— both behind and in front of the camera-- under her belt. Emerging from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Brown University with a Bachelors degree in apparel design, her talents were quickly recognized by the leaders of the fashion world.

Post RISD, she apprenticed with supermodel turned designer Alek Wek, assisting with accessory production for the line Alek Wek 1933, Ltd. She has also worked alongside legendary fashion stylist Patti Wilson, styling editorial shoots for Vogue Italia, Vogue China, and Numero magazine.

An avid traveler, time spent in Tuscany and Venice left her mesmerized by the stained glass windows and architectural motifs of Florentine Renaissance churches and Venetian palaces. Transfixed by the masonry, she decided to create a line of day and evening bags inspired by this classic yet avante-garde, old world aesthetic. Thus came the launch of Victoire Focx handbags.

In 2018, she launched the diffusion line, VF x VICTOIRE FOCX, an elegant and affordable selection of classic bag silhouettes with a contemporary edge. Each bag is named after someone who inspired her in her personal and professional trajectory.
In addition to her design endeavors, Constance Victory holds a Masters degree in Historical and Sustainable Architecture from New York University. She presently lives between New York City and London, devoting her time to Victoire Focx and VF x VICTOIRE FOCX, in addition to writing for U.S. and U.K. based magazine publications.
