Here's a little about how Adriana got started:
Hi my name is Adriana, I’m 24 years old, I was born and raised in Managua, Nicaragua and moved to New York City four years ago when I got married. I started designing and illustrating handbags for myself and then in one of my trips to my country I decided to have them custom-made just for me…when I got back to NYC I noticed that people were asking me for my handbags on the streets. At first it was funny and awkward, but then I realized that maybe I could actually start selling them. So that’s when I decided to start with this line which is very simple but chic.
As a painter and illustrator I’m inspired by the sights and sounds of NYC, the people, the museums and galleries but mainly by my trips abroad, this line was inspired by my last trip to the Dominican Republic, the radiant colors and shapes of the bags and accessories came from the fruit markets, rain forest, beaches and specially the people and children.
Also one of the most important things that makes me happy about this collection is that I get to help people from my country. Meeting the people that make the handbags is a very gratifying experience, giving them the chance to work and create these handbags for me is priceless.
I hope you love them the way I do. In my humble experience I hope to continue creating more new and beautiful things, for the people who enjoy the work of imaginative handmade accessories.
