Fashion Shoot Handbags for Vertigo!

As a designer I am always excited when my designs come out looking fabulous!  I have blogged about the Vertigo brand in the past few months.   We have many fun and trendy collections in production that I designed for the brand.  I designed the bags from first sketch through to production.

For the past few years, I would often run into an attractive young blonde in our apartment building in La Jolla and we would exchange pleasantries.   Our exchanges were always related to fashion because she was always wearing amazing handbags and cute outfits.   She was super friendly and had an incredible wardrobe.     One d
