Inspired by the "favorite non-designer handbag" thread I'd love to know what independent designers you love. Basically, any designer bags that are out of the mainstream or new up-and-coming designers. I love discovering new designers or other ones that aren't super popular in my area. Me, I have a Heather Hawkins snakeskin bag I LOVE. She's an independent designer out of California and she makes some fantastic exotic leather bags. Also, I have red croc-embossed Marino Orlandi, maybe not quite as niche as it's somewhat popular in Italy but not at all in Canada. What indy designers do you love. Pics welcome I'll get to posting some soon too.
