This Sunday, I will be venturing off to the Hyatt 48 Lex here in New York to begin the judging process of the 6th Annual Handbag Designer Awards hosted by Handbag Designer 101. A very fun and long day ahead me, I’m most excited about previewing the next big names when it comes to THE must-have accessory.
Last year’s big winner was Clara Kasavina, who submitted this gem for the Red Carpet Ready Evening Bag category. I can remember sitting at the table a bit bored and BAM the whole room gasped with excitement. We all knew we had found a diamond in the rough (literally).
Their win resulted in a feature in September’s Issue of Instyle Magazine, and you can now find them in just about any major retailer, editorial, or red carpet.
I myself absolutely love pulling them for celebrity clients. Supermodel Coco Rocha fell in love with this crystal minaudiere and ring which she wore to the 2011 WGSN Global Fashion Awards held here in New York.
Who will be this year’s winner?
