Despite the unexpected shift in direction, Lee is staying positive. “I am a survivor! I have been designing bags for eight years and refuse to disappear in fear of the economic strain,” she says.
She’s also got some fun plans for the future. “In March, I will be launching my clutchesandcocktails.com site which is for home, corporate, and fund-raising parties with chick flick themes featuring my bags and tasty beverages. Also in March, I am showcasing my new Spring ’09 handbag collection at the Saturday, March 28th Charleston Fashion Week Accessories Style Lounge… and they will certainly be venturing down the runway at a show or two!”
So there you have it. The store may be closed by rlee isn’t going anywhere.
