What is your design background?
I started my training in handbag design and manufacture over 6 years ago. This was continued in London where I now live, at the London College of Fashion on the Cordwainers design course. Following that I spent time enhancing my skills by working with London based designers and a high quality leather goods manufacture that I work with closely today.
Have you worked with CRYSTALLIZEDâ??Ă?Â˘ - Swarovski Elements before?
Would this bag fit in with your current collection and why?
Yes 100%. I was very excited to work on this design with this new material. I came up with many different ideas but my challenge was how to combine this new material into my style. My collection shows myself and more than anything I didnâ??Ă?Ă´t want to design something thatâ??Ă?Ă´s not me. I think my philosophy of elegant simplicity has been fully realised in this bag.
