It was around 2015 when I realized the impact a structured handbag could have on my overall personal style and outlook. Up until that point I had been a very casual college student who was fine with carrying a fabric tote for books and everything else.
I found my first ‘it-bag’ at a resale store and decided to make the investment, a I had internship interviews coming up and needed to be more professional. I began taking the rest of my personal style more seriously and only good followed.
Like many girls, when I was much younger I would lose hours of time teaching myself to sew. I would deconstruct thrift store items and old curtains from the attic storage and turn them into wearable art. A few years after my first investment bag I began to feel that same draw and a downtown Chicago fabric outlet was calling my name on my lunch break.
The selection of colorful faux leathers and luxurious linings were mesmerizing. I began researching bag construction and tried my hand at my first clutch bag that evening. It would be a fun project if nothing else.
I soon decided to create my first collection, which was inspired by birds and movement, after a rookie sewing mistake. I crossed paths with many people who helped on the collection and provided much needed outside expertise.
