The clothes were fabulous. Women were dressed day and night. I just love elegance. My Grandmother who loved fashion and who also, passed that down to my mother always loved throwing parties. She would wear long elegant dresses and entertain her family and friends. If you want that special dress and you don't know where to wear it, throw a party.

Bags were my first initiative into the world of customer relations. It has taught me alot about hands on business, and selling.

Each piece is one of a kind, because even if I repeat the look for my customers it will always come out slightly different.
