Growing up in Florida, I had the opportunity to shop on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach with my mom. The specialized boutiques and haute couture fascinated me as a young girl. My interest in fashion piqued during studies abroad in Florence, Italy. During this magical semester, I often wandered along Via Tornabuoni, Via del Corso, and the Ponte Vecchio visiting the incredible boutiques, fabric shops and the famous leather market. The fashion and the appreciation for the talent, dedication and creativity of these craftsmen planted the seeds for August Designs.
After spending a number of years in the fashion industry in New York City, I founded August Designs. My goal is to design bags that are uniquely simple using the finest leathers and exotic skins. The classic bags are made to fit your lifestyle, from your day-to-day carryall to your fun evening bag.
I sincerely hope you enjoy our bags as much as I enjoy creating them for you.
