Each one of Anya Sushko's handbags is handcrafted in her London studio, using the finest materials and resulting in an unmatched attention to detail. The handbags stand out with their quality, striking shapes and carefully placed details, designed to be as practical as they are beautiful. You can tell an Anya Sushko handbag by not only seeing it but by feeling its detail too. Born in Riga, Latvia, when it was still part of the USSR, Anya's childhood was marked by the typical Soviet challenges with no access to foreign goods, very limited exposure for Western culture compensated by vigorous involvement in classical Russian arts such as ballet, gymnastics and piano. From an early age, Anya learned how to make the beautiful things she couldn't buy herself, with the encouragement of her mother, who taught her that you get what you work for.

In 2001 Anya moved to London as she felt she would have more opportunities to fulfill her potential here. She was accepted at Central Saint Martins' College of Art and Design in London for a foundation year where she had the chance to learn about fine art, fashion, textile and graphic design. Later, she realized that fashion is her true calling and therefore made a decision to continue studying at the London College of Fashion, focusing on accessories and specializing in handbag design and creation.

She has always had the drive to create and develop a brand. Before this, however, she knew she had to gain experience as she felt nothing builds you up as a person like hard work, discipline and passion. Her determination led her to Alexander McQueen's London studio where she had the privilege of assisting on two of his couture collections, shown during Paris Fashion Week in 2006. She started Anya Sushko luxury handbags in 2008 in London.

Anya Sushko draws inspiration from the surrounding world, the dynamic of life in London, nature, the human body as well as architecture which has had a profound impact on her early work. The Chic and Shape collection is a tribute to the Art Deco period, one of her favourites. London is her home now and she let the dynamic of this great city inspire her. You can learn so much from life in London. Life is colourful, not always easy but never dull. Her collection is for women with such qualities too.

The brand specializes in high quality handbags with stand out design, as well as bespoke creations. Each one of the handbags are handcrafted in her London studio, using the finest Italian leather and hand-finished detailing. Quality and craftsmanship are at the epicenter of the brand. The brand's mission is to create unique statement handbags, which are beautiful but also practical and a pleasure to wear.

In July 2014 the brand is launching it's diffusion line which include the Karolina bags that are sold here on HBD101. The diffusion line will also include small leather goods which include make-up bags, pencil cases, purses and tassels.
