In Love With Bags

I love bags, in general. When I’m outside, my first look is captured on a person’s bag: men/women. It says a lot about the style sense and individual needs. I personally like clean, polished handbag looks in all sizes but also “crazy” ones with unusual shapes.
I think that a handbag, especially a women’s is a small private universe… confidential and individual. I see it as a combination of a coat’s pocket and a personal, carry with drawer.

In 2006 when I’ve started to work as an independent fashion designer I first began by sewing clothing collections, creating day/evening dresses, skirts, coats, trousers… After 4 years of intense work I decided to try a new twist, something that challenges me as much. I’ve chosen to make bags, more specific shopping bags that look a bit different than the standard.

The very first model

I didn’t know where this change will take me but I wanted to reflect my designs and creativity into professionally playing with materials and different components. I evolved the idea into trying new models and later, ever since I’ve been making 5 collections.

My production process is relatively long as I usually make unique pieces and models with small variations on the basic patterns depending on the fabrics and colors. I like to invest time to be able to reach my quality target and before starting a new model I always make a prototype that I can visualize what needs to be improved on the finished product.

The bags are on display to be sold in my atelier, Innsbruck, online and soon Bucharest… In each location I chose to have different collections that are matching every shop’s philosophy.

I’ll keep making handbags and every time I’ll have something new I would love to share it with you, on the blog!
