Sang A has made her designs known in the fashion world. Whether it be through word of mouth, celebrity sightings, TV sightings, or just being in the know, Sang A Bags have cultivated a strong following. Sang A bags are known for their exotic skins and stand-out designs. While in NYC last month, Vlad and I missed meeting with Sang A but were able to follow up with an interview last week.

Not all of us have the fashionable intuition or stylist touch when it comes to putting together outfits. Going to the experts is always the way to go, but ends up being pricey. Luckily for you, we were able to ask eLUXURY.com’s stylist, Hayley Atkin, tips for the season. We brought you interviews from eLUXURY’s buyers, but getting tips from a stylist is the perfect guidance many of us need.

We introduced you to eLUXURY’s contemporary buyer earlier, and now it is time for you to meet their Designer Buyer. Andrew Dershaw is Designer Buyer for eLUXURY.com, whose selection I frequent most often for Purse Blog posts. There indeed is someone behind the buying choices for the designer selection at eLUXURY.com and we got a chance to ask him some questions.

One of my favorite online boutiques to browse and shop is eLUXURY.com. Their selection is vast and the options are always on par for the season. But I rarely think about who is behind picking the handbags to show all of us season after season. If you wondered the same thing, wonder no more! We had a chance to get to know the Contemporary Buyer for eLUXURY.com, Jen Ely.

We have another treat for you right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Only thing about this treat is that it will not hurt your waistline. We introduced you all to the dynamic duo behind Lambertson Truex last spring. Vlad and I took time to follow up with Richard Lambertson and John Truex earlier this month. The bags they design continue to ignite our handbag loving hearts and Vlad and I left NYC with a bag a piece and a pair of shoes from LT.

While we gave a sneak peak to the Minkettes on the forum already, it is time we formally introduce the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2009 line. We had the pleasure to sit down with Rebecca two weeks ago to ask her your questions, find out more about what is to come, and see her hot new bags. Studs are seen on many of the bags, offering a rocker edge, which is the perfect touch for the gal with a little kick in her step.

Megs and I had the rare opportunity to meet with and interview one of the long-time greats, Carlos Falchi. The master took us around his creative lair, his production and allowed us to pick his brain for a good hour.
Needless to say, the experiences was fantastic and we are happy being able to share it with our readers, along with some intimate insights into the inner workings of Carlos’ design studio.

Shannon brought you all a little insight behind Kooba a couple weeks ago with 5 questions for Abbe Held, Kooba’s creative director. Vlad and I spent time with Abbe Held in her NYC showroom last week getting to know more about her and the Kooba line. The fun-hearted mother of two spends her weekdays designing some of the hottest bags in the market and her weekends dancing in the kitchen with her two daughters and husband on pancake Sunday.

I am a tad late on this, but I hope some of the NYC ladies take advantage of this opportunity! We have already introduced you to Bird Handbags. The line is said to be geared toward rich hippies, and while I am neither of those two things, I adore her bags. The Lady is my favorite as the style was definitely lacking in the handbag market.

Laura Darrah and Sheila Nazarian of TreesjeWe are always on the hunt for the next big designers emerging in the handbag and purse world. Many times I don’t even have to search, as the designers and their ever-growing popularity comes to me. Continually seeing talk on Treesje on our Purse Forum, I realized it was time to look into the designers. It was quite fitting then that soon after I was introduced to their line, Vlad and I were invited to an event at Saks in NYC where the designers from Treesje, Laura Darrah and Sheila Nazarian, would be making an appearance.
