#TBT 10th Independent Handbag Designer Awards

Last week I attended the The Tenth Independent Handbag Designer Awards, celebrating real talented handbag designers around the world. It was truly inspiring to see the work of art from various different countries. The nominees were judged by a panel of past winners, bloggers, magazine editors and other designers. The night was truly inspiring especially when giving the 2016 Carlos Falchi Iconoclast Award to MZ Wallace. A brand that I have watched grow over the past 16 years to be a true competitor. See some highlights from the night.
