Darlings, today I am delighted to introduce you to the fabulous handbag brand Hudson & Morton, which is designed by a talented childhood friend of mine. These bags are the utterly perfect combination of downtown cool & uptown sophistication. I have asked Sydney a few questions about the inspiration behind her chic Fall 2012 collection ....
Where do you find most of your inspiration?
I find that most of my inspiration comes from my travels. The exposure to different cultures, art and architecture has always been the primary driving force behind my designs. For this Fall collection, I was inspired by the clean lines and crisp tailoring in menswear as well as the architecture in Nicolas Alan Cope photographs.
How did you get your start as a designer?
I got my start as a designer almost immediately after I graduated Parsons School of Design in May. Internships at Donna Karan and Rag & Bone as well as my Parsons fashion design education helped me learn all of the facets of the design process- from conceptualization to production to sales. I've always dreamed of having my own line and after weeks of sketching and sample making, I decided to go into production and bring this company to life.
What is the "must have" bag in your Fall 2012 Collection?
Blush is THE color for Fall, which is why I designed each bag in Blush. The Village Clutch is made out of a gorgeous pebbled lamb leather and I find the texture so compelling- the color and the texture combined certainly pop with any Fall outfit.
