As a fan of most things Italian i.e. food, wine, and speaking with my hands... fine Italian leather is no exception. One of the first remarkable things about Patricia Nash's handbags is her commitment to high-quality materials. She describes her line as combination of "old world craftsmanship and contemporary passion" and after seeing her handbags, I think she hit the nail right on the head. No stranger to the fashion world, Patricia Nash brings over 20 years of accessory development and creation to her designs. Also an avid traveler, she developed a passion for European leathers and vintage markets, which is evident by her bag designs and in my opinion, distinguishes her from other brands. "Pat" as her friends call her, was absolutely lovely to meet and told me she has really enjoyed the ride that starting her own collection has taken her on. It's always refreshing to meet someone who is passionate about what they do. Her bags have garnered some well-deserved press from magazines like Lucky and Redbook and have been seen carried by the likes of Denise Richards and Miranda Lambert. I am now a proud owner of a Patricia Nash bag which I love and always gets complimented. I can't wait to see what is ahead for this budding designer!
