I know absolutely nothing about handbags. It’s all about the belt. For me there are several steps from vision to production that I take for creating all my belts. However, handbags are on a different timeline. After the initial sketch, I will try to draw it the final way I have decided. It’s not just the front of the bag I have to sketch; the back, bottom, straps, interior pockets, credit card slots and every trademark signature I want to include. Dimensions in the final sketch include height, width, length, thickness in stitching, spacing of stitching and most important the belt. I design how the belt will be incorporated into the handbag first, and then I design everything else around it.
