Handbag designer Katherine Kwei is teaming up with online sample sale site Gilt Groupe tomorrow Wednesday April 1st!
Innovative design, exceptional quality and a deep reverence for Chinese tradition are the foundations for designer Katherine Kwei’s aesthetic philosophy. After working in PR for esteemed fashion house Louis Vuitton, Kwei went on to pursue a degree in accessories design, graduating with an M.A in Design and Technology for Accessories from the prestigious London College of Fashion. While in London she worked with bespoke floral appliqué handbag designer Susannah Hunter, as well as the trendy Billy Bag company. After moving to New York, Kwei completed an internship with Zac Posen and ultimately launched an eponymous line of her own in 2007. Luxurious and refined, Kwei’s snakeskin, calfskin, and goat suede bags are routinely seen on the arms of A-List starlets like Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria and Rachel Weisz as well as features in prestigious publications like People and Vogue UK. Katherine Kwei’s stylish satchels are available at Saks Fifth Avenue, high-end boutiques across the country and now, Gilt Groupe.
