This year we were once again proud sponsors of the Independent Handbag Designer Awards, an awards show that displays some of the most inventive and unique accessories from designers all over the world. Now in its 8th year, the entries were out of this world! And while all of them were a spectacular feat of creativity, the winners were absolute standouts.
The Optitex Best Student Made Handbag winner, Morgan Richards, had a rustic, burnished leather bag, with matching leather tassels.
The handbag that won Best in Overall Style and Design was John Edwards’ bold, blue creation. The light blue paired with gold-toned accents made for a gorgeous combination. It also happened to be the fan favorite!
This beautiful clutch, by Gili Rozin Tamam, won the award for Best Handmade Handbag. Creating this bag took a unique process of imprinting that is usually reserved for the automotive industry. This designer is always thinking outside of the box!
Above were a few of our favorites, but check out the rest of the Independent Handbag Design Awards winners, and let us know which one YOU love!
