Whether they’re crafted from luxury leather or high-quality fabrics, every one of our bags is designed to radiate absolute style on the outside, and to perform with unparalleled functionality on the inside. It’s a fashion collaboration dreams are made of.

The bag idea started when my first child Bella was born and I couldn't find a nice looking bag that had all the compartments I needed as a woman as well as all the compartments I needed as a mum. I definitely found it frustrating that baby bags were so ugly at the time! And designer bags didn’t have all the space I needed for my new role as a mum in a way I could access them easily. Who wants to be searching for a dummy when you're driving with a screaming baby? It's all about convenience when you have kids, and no one was catering to that market back then. At least not in a stylish way.

I completed my diploma in fashion at East Sydney Technical College around 20 years ago here I learnt pattern making, sewing and everything you need to complete a design.

The design process is constantly evolving. Our first two collections of bags were great for mums and also great for the beach. They were made from recycled plastic, making them hardy and functional. While I loved our first two collections, as a designer I was not fulfilled. I am almost 40 and I have gotten to the stage in my life where I want a little bit of luxury. Leather is so essential for that luxe feel, and I know that my customers want that too! So with this in mind, the next range was my dream come true, as a designer.
