Inspiring Design by Anya Hindmarch

The Girlie Stuff travel bag. $ 120.
Zip Top Purse $ 365.

The Pimlico Bag $ 1250.

British designer Anya Hindmarch leads a busy life in London as a world famous handbag designer and mother of five children (ages 7-21). She is an inspiring figure as she consistently designs handbags, journals, travel bags and accessories intended to organize and delight other busy women.

At just 42 years old, she runs a global luxury brand that includes 54 retail stores, a collection for Target and a very popular line of coats for Barbour outerwear.

Hindmarch says she gains inspiration from everyday events such as doing homework with her children, attending parties, and observing life around her. Her labeling inside of the handbags such as "lipstick", "phone", and "coins" are an attempt to organize busy women like herself.
