Today we are premiering a new capsule which focuses on emerging individuals of interest in our business. For our first In Focus featured we chose Maggie S. Chan of clothstomidnight.blogspot.com. Maggie captured our attention with both her visual style and intriguing photography. Digging deeper, we feel we found someone we are excited to introduce as the kick-off to our new In Focus feature.
One of our favorite male fashion bloggers, Mr. Bags recently paid a visit to our Long Island factory. Most well known on the popular social media platform, Weibo, we were so excited to show him our handbag making process and have him pick out a bag and make it his own!
Recently we asked Erin Gates from Elements of Style if she would like to collaborate on a custom handbag this spring. We were excited when she said yes, and pleasantly surprised when two days later she came back to us with this amazing concept!
We immediately went to work in our New York factory to bring her vision to life.
Soon we had a completely new design that everyone in our office loved!
From concept to reality the Gates Satchel was ready for its close up. Lights, Camera, Action!
Today the Gates Satchel has launched, we would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and dedication. You can see all five Gates Satchels on the GiGi New York website and on Elements of Style.
Last week we spent the weekend in Dallas, TX at rewardStyle’s annual conference for their top 200 publishers. We met and re-connected with some of our favorite girls, got to set up a stamping booth to personalize some goodies for them, and snapped some awesome pictures. Overall it was great to see everyone in one place and be able to discuss future collaborations and special projects. Thanks to everyone who came to see us and for all of your support!
Today, style blogger Mary Seng from Happily Grey traveled to our Long Island factory to experience first hand how GiGi New York handbags are made. Owner Tom Glazer, gave her a full factory tour and an exclusive sneak peek of our upcoming Fall styles.
