Katherine Kwei approaches her design with a passion for understated elegance while remaining faithful to her artistic vision of mixing modernity with tradition through her Chinese "Eternity" knot-inspired weave. Her reverence for tradition and her innovative style resonates in each season's collection to give her designs a special personal quality. With so much handiwork one might think Kwei's bags seem precious but they look edgy, tough and elegant - a perfect presentation of the modern woman who is both feminine and strong. A former PR rep for luxury giant Louis Vuitton, Katherine Kwei was familiar with high-end skins and craftsmanship long before she started her own line which debuted in 2007. Catching the attention of a growing list of celebs including Cameron Diaz, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Mendes, Taylor Momsen, Ashley Olsen and Olivia Palermo, her line has also kindled a following of well-heeled women and luxury boutiques.
