She told the Denver Post in 2005 how she got started on her way to becoming a handbag designer. “When I showed Kevin some samples, he said they were beautiful and amazing,” she said. “He told me to do the next thing and that he would help me. I’ve always loved fashion and style, and it’s great if you can combine the two.”
