|Birthday Cake in the dark after SANDY|
|The Large Cambodia Camouflage Clutch|
Earlier last year, two women who I work with had already confided in me that they thought I needed to focus on handbags. They thought my designs were fun and would find a supportive audience. I am oftentimes open about people's suggestions and this moment was no different. But I did take a wait and see attitude. Could they have seen something that I was not able to see myself? There was a confluence of other episodes that led me to believe that, perhaps, the universe was moving me forward to the next chapter in my life. Many times I've said that having the ability to design is a gift and I need to honor my gift at all times because it is not one that is given freely. So I have fully embraced handbag design.
On Monday, February 25, www.skwilbur.com will be updated with the handbag designs that my business partners and I are selling. Starting off small, we are offering two clutch styles in four different colorways. We are also giving women an opportunity to special order other colors of their choosing. We're hoping to finally secure retail orders, as well. Making progress is a process and I am always in a learning curve. Yet, I am feeling positive about what the future holds. Sometimes you've got to take a step back to move forward. And when those orders start to come in, I will feel validated and fully recovered.
Peace & Fashion!
