What is your inspiration for this sketch?
The inspiration for this sketch is basically my interpretation of what a capsule collection for Isabella Fiore should be. Fresh, innovative and different! I designed a bag that translates my perspective of past collections, but staying true to my design concepts and style.

Why did you select the particular materials to work within your sketch?
I used Cheyene leather, Matka Silk and two different hand stitching techniques.

What is your design background?
I am self taught.

Would this bag fit in with your current collection and why?
Yes, I always try and stay true to what I'm comfortable with and when I design, whether for myself or others - it is still cohesive.

What are the price-points of your current line?

What materials do you normally work with?
Leather and exotics

Where are your bags currently sold?

What can you offer to the Isabella Fiore aesthetic?
A different point of view, staying within the guidelines - if that makes sense.
