8th Annual Indepdendent Handbag Designer Awards

With less than a week away, the preliminary judging panel will be meeting here in New York this coming Sunday to determine finalists for the 8th Annual IHDA (Independent Handbag Designer Awards).  I’m happy to report that I will be on the panel this year, yet again.  I can not wait to see what designers have in-store for us. Along with discovering new names, what tends to really excite me are those who create beautifully crafted bags that bring originality to the market.  If you haven’t entered, there’s still time to apply.  Curious to see which bags standout?  Follow the #HandbagAwards, myself and the others via Instagram & Twitter to stay up-to-date.

Slither into Style this Spring

As we slither into the spring weather we’ve all so anxiously been waiting for, I can’t help but notice the streets of New York starting to bloom with vibrant colors and bold patterns.  Shedding our winter looks, it seems like everyone is more than ready to show off the latest seasons trends.  Speaking of trends, you can count on seeing lots of is snakeskin print.  It was a favorite amongst many designers collections, and is a great way to give a pop to any dull or boring look.   Accessories magazine agrees and put together some of their favorite finds including the Chelsea tote by WM Design House.
