Last week in New York I had the pleasure of meeting the talented handbag designer, Khirma Eliazov. I was in awe of all the beautiful bags that surrounded me upon walking into her charming West Village boutique (flagship store and headquarters). Gorgeous totes, shoulder bags and clutches made from luxurious materials like crocodile, python and stingray, and in bright pops of color like orange, yellow and cobalt blue. I also got a glimpse of the Spring 2014 collection, which was no disappointment! I might have to splurge on a new bag come spring…
After chatting with the designer I discovered that previous to starting her company 4 years ago she was an editor at Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as a brand consultant and a fashion stylist. Quite the resume!
I love getting the chance to meet with amazing designers like Khirma. It’s so inspiring to hear their stories and see where they draw their inspiration. I get to go back to my clients and not only show them the products, but tell them the story behind it.
