Here is a little bit about the designer…
What is your background? I have been designing, selling, and marketing handbags and other accessories for other brands for over 20 years. First I was focused on licenses with Warner Bros. Disney, to private brand development for American Eagle, J Crew, and Ann Taylor to name a few.
When did you start designing? I started designing and making wedding cakes to support myself in college to then designing kitchen products, children’s products to handbags and small accessories nearly 20 years ago
What other things do you design besides handbags? Small leather goods, luggage, belts, hats, and boots. We look forward to expanding our product line as Patricia Nash grows as a brand.
Price range of handbags? $99-299
How would you describe your line? European Old world craftsmanship for today’s woman
What do you do outside of designing? Management of the business, still serve as Pres of Company- mother of 2 and grandmother of 6 – still decorate cakes for family members. I love cooking, travelling and appreciating any type of old world craftsmanship.
Has designing handbags always been your passion? Designing and creating something in general sharing it with people has always been my passion whether cakes, food, bags, or a flower arrangement.
