Rebecca Minkoff Bags
I thought she deserved her own thread... She's a fairly new designer... and I think her Morning After bag is GREAT... I own one in the blue/brown colorway...

Here's some little info about the designer
The best designers you’ve never heard of.

In the Bag
New York City designer Rebecca Minkoff fashions luxury handbags with a hip, downtown attitude.

Name: Rebecca Minkoff
Business: Rebecca Minkoff (Rebeccaminkoff.com)
Location: New York City

When did you become interested in fashion design?
My interest in fashion began when I was about 14 years old. I was fascinated with taking apart clothing and sewing it back together by hand or with my handheld Singer sewing machine. My earliest creation was a ’50s-inspired dress that I made when I was eight years old.

Did you pursue fashion in college or follow a different route?
I didn’t pursue design in college. I moved to New York City and interned for designer Craig Taylor, and after that, I launched my own line.

Was it difficult taking that first step?
Yes—it was scary as hell to be working on my own and for myself. But when Rebecca Minkoff sightings started to occur, I realized I was becoming successful. I began as a clothing designer, and my handbags sort of followed by mistake.

Your bags look so lush, in high-quality leathers, often with woven details and cool hardware. What led you to create these kinds of accessories?
I wanted to design bags that were classic but still had modern, eye-catching details.

And your clothing looks very sexy and body-flattering.
I trained as a dancer when I was younger, so I have a love affair with the body and the different shapes that clothing can take on it.

Your designs have been worn by some of Hollywood’s hottest stars, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Cameron Diaz. What’s it like to see celebrities wearing your designs?
It’s exciting, and of course, it’s great promotion. When celebrities wear your pieces, it makes the public aware and creates demand.

And you’re only 25 years old. What impact has your age had on your work?
Because of my age, I think I have a lot of energy and drive that impacts my designs and impresses people.

Do you have any fashion icons or role models?
Ms. Coco—I just finished reading her autobiography, and her tenacity and fortitude are really inspiring.

What do you envision for the future—both for you personally and for the brand?
Ultimately, I want to take the brand global, but lately, I’ve been concentrating on my niche and am planning to expand when the time is right.

^ *MAXIMUS*!!! you've been missed! How are you?

yes, the clutch is beauty, isn't it!!!! Christmas list? That's a long time from now . . . have to come up with another holiday, or make one up , so you can acquire it sooner! Maybe a *ahem* make-up *cough* gift from the SO {of course, you've got to initiate an argument or something} . . . okay, enough ideas . . . I'm sure you've got some tricks up your sleeve. . .

It's after 14 days, I think. So for two weeks you can return it and get a refund, but after that there's a 50% restocking fee. Seems pretty high.

Ok, now for an everyday bag I am either going to get the royal blue, emerald, or white.....not just debating on the size???? If anyone has the mini let me know how mini it is??? It doesnt seem too small from the measurements on the website??
