There's this cool bag designer, and she really impressed us with her fabulous bag designs. She had an exhibit a few days ago at the Shangri-La Place and we were able to personally see and appreciate her stylish and sophisticated bags that's guaranteed 100% genuine Italian leather.
Her name is Carla Sta. Cruz, and she calls herself a Leather Artisan and Designer with offices in New York and Manila.

The evening started with some pica-pica and drinks for the guests, and then a feast at the buffet table. There was this interesting piece of tray for the colorful nachos and chips with dips....and a lighted candle in the middle of the table tops.
A short video presentation was shown to the guests that evening showcasing her bag designs oozing with class and ideal for the modern lifestyle of every woman..
She then gave a very short talk thanking her guest for coming to her event.
We then had the opportunity to interview her and asked about the conditions she goes through when importing raw Italian leather materials for her bags.
She told us we can quote her about the difficulties she has been getting from the Customs agency of the government and how its becoming a hindrance to entrepreneurs like her....then looks at her lawyer and confirms if its OK for her to complain...hehehe
Meantime, let's take a look at some of her bags that were on display that evening. They are an awesome collection of creativity and fabulous colors not too extravagant and flaunting but decent enough to exude just the right amount of sophistication. Usefulness and convenience were also taken into consideration as these bags were large enough to provide for all the necessary stuff of the modern ladies.
