How Do You Come Up with New Ideas?

A lot of people ask how I come up with designs for handbags and accessories.  I actually design and come up with ideas as I sketch.  There is something about putting pen to paper that is part of the creative process.

In advance I may have tear sheets, leather swatches or samples of vintage handbags that inspire me for a specific collection but the actual shape and details of the bags don't appear until I sit down with a pencil and paper.

I don't sit at the computer and design a bag.  It is all done by hand surrounded by beautiful swatches and whatever inspires me.  

I think technology is fantastic.  I have been on social media and the Internet forever..but I am old school when it comes to the design process.   I love the smell of leather and playing around with my vintage accessories.
