From Sketch to Shoulder
Tara always wanted to reach women through fashion. She studied to be an accountant for several years and soon realized it might not be the best place to do this. Feeling creatively frustrated and the need to act on her passions, she decided to stop in the local fabric shop after work.
She didn't know what she was looking for but became mesmerized by the vast selection of leather. She decided to make her first bag that night, staying up until nearly 1am sewing the first clutch. As a complete sewing novice, the shape of a bird's beak subtly appeared in the flap due to a sewing mistake.
Immediately intrigued by the architectural quality of handbags, and as an all or nothing person, Tara began dreaming up an entire bird inspired collection.
Birds have symbolized freedom, wisdom and power throughout history and literature and my collection revives this symbol in a subtle, yet compelling way.
