Inside Knowledge

When I work on a new idea, I think about the inside of my design just as much as the outside, so I thought it’s about time I posted on the subject. A plain bag isn’t a boring bag, in my opinion it’s a beautiful, minimalist design, that’s been well thought through inside, as well…

This #BagsOnTour photo of VIP Club memberĀ Tamsen Garrie with her turq Roanne tote was…

Q is for Queen B

This post is all about Queen B. The Queen B bag is a new design that was inspired by a lady who has helped me with my business marketing. Her name is Bernadette Doyle. While I was feeling low and in need of marketing inspiration, Bernadette asked me to design a hot pink bag for…
