What is your design philosophy?
I design shapes of handbags according to what I consider beautiful on a human body. I see bags as an extension of our natural curves of the body. By draping on a form, I create bags that fit well to the body. More over, I pay attention to utilitarian aspects of the handbag, such as secure closures, convertible straps and pockets.
