Aimee Kestenberg : NYC Designer and Total #GIRLBOSS

While we know that you ladies are amazing, strong and unstoppable in your own right, we also realize that while you’re killin’ it, you need a bag to hold your sh*t!

 

A quality, leather handbag already makes a statement in itself, but a handbag that’s designed by a female entrepreneur who is breaking the ‘norm’, is sure to scale that feeling of empowerment up a notch!

 

We all know that luxury and affordability have never really been BFF’s. Australian #girlboss and designer Aimee Kestenberg has flipped that concept on its head, creating a successful namesake brand of leather goods - all under $300.

 

Since launching her label in New York in 2013, Aimee has gained an international following, with major stockists including Nordstrom, QVC, Shopbop and Lord & Taylor.  She was also named in Forbes’ 2014 30 under 30… (Who run the world? #Girls).

 

Her contemporary designer bags and accessories are made from high quality leather, so they’re strong, classic and reliable. They also make a statement. Aimee is known for her use of unique colors and bold stitching and hardware.

 

Aimee’s success comes from years of study in design school and industry experience, working with global fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Ralph Lauren. While becoming the go-to ghost designer behind these luxury labels, Aimee realized that she couldn’t actually afford to purchase the bags she was designing. This realization inspired Aimee to create her own range for women looking for affordable luxury.

 

We love the Tamitha Backpack for its functionality, security and style. It features an oversized metal zipper on the front allowing for easy entry, plus a back slip pocket and a security snap to lock the zipper in place. Inside features a padded wall for your tablet or laptop computer - a must for any girl on the go.
