Katherine Kwei Spring 2012 Handbag Preview Event


On Wednesday I attended the Katherine Kwei Spring/Summer 2012 preview event held at the lovely Delicatessen restaurant. Like a bad blogger, I get there and turn on my camera and it's dying! Thankfully I was with my friend, Nicole from Style Me BAD, so I have her to thank for most of these photos!

I love the fringe!

It was so lovely to meet the designer herself. She explained that her designs were inspired by the Chinese eternity knot. You'll see a play on the knot throughout her collection. The Spring/Summer 2012 collection was inspired by the Polynesian islands with gorgeous blues and white sandy beaches.

I think this was everyone's favorite bag - it photographed so beautifully!

We had some fun modeling the bags:

Nicole modeled the Donna Snake Sling Bag

While I preferred the smaller clutch

In the other room the wine was flowing and delicious chocolates were being passed around. We couldn't keep up!

There was also a coloring station where we could color in one of Katherine's charms for a chance to win a bag. I chose a duck and made it badass:

He has a blue mohawk with a mom tattoo (lol!)

Also, the fabulous Lacee Swan was on hand to do sketches of us! I finally got meet Lacee in person and she was such a sweetheart.


Loved how my sketch came out:


We all got to go home with one of Katherine's charms:


I received a duck (like my drawing!) which is fitting because my best friend's nickname for me is barvazoni, which is Hebrew for "rubber duckie" (lol!).

A big thank you to Bianca and Mallory of Small Girls PR - you ladies know how to host an event!
