Paris, London, New York...Sydney? Though not quite a major fashion player yet, Australia's biggest city is well on its' way to becoming a fashion fixture thanks to the wildly popular handbags from Australian designer, Rachael Ruddick. Established in 2008, Ruddick's luxury leather goods and accessories are created with a commitment to celebrating classic Australian style and "sense of attitude. A veteran of LVMH, Ruddick was shocked that "the world's most coveted leather from Australia had not been embraced in a fashion sense." Ruddick's holiday collection covers all the bases from bright totes and messenger bags to studded clutches and fabulous tie dye hobo bags. If Rachael Ruddick's collection is any indication, the land down under is rising to the top!
For me, a "diverse" collection equals instant appeal! The "bay street" (pic. one) is my favorite design.
