Aimee Kestenberg: Fashion & Function

What if I told you that there was a beautifully crafted all leather bag out there that was both fashionable and functional and available at a price that won't break the bank!?! 

 
Aimee Kestenberg, winner of the 2010 Independent Handbag Designer Award and finalist for the InStyle, Independent Handbag Designer Awards in 2011, has launched her own line of handbags under the Adoni Group in New York. Aimee says, "Each piece I create is undeniably original; a blend of edgy sexiness with timeless sophistication that is completely wearable from day to evening. I hand make each piece to perfection ensuring only the best in quality and precision." Aimee travels the world sourcing the best leathers and (my favorite) antique jewelry for hardware inspiration. At only 24 years old, this Aussie designer is rocking the accessory world!

Aimee Kestenberg bags range from $138- $328, an accessible price for real people. All made from exclusive leathers, I can personally testify to the beauty and suppleness of each and every piece. And don't even get me started on the pockets! While running through New York City streets, going to meeting after meeting, my bag kept me organized and looking oh so good! I'm a mom and I am always toting books or Oliver's kindle. My AK bag has the perfect spot for it all. The black Jessie tote was definitely one of my favorites from the showroom with a fringe detail that I just can't seem to get enough of these days.
Aimee, who got her start sitting on her grandmother's floor learning to sew and make bracelets, is as adorable as she is talented and a force to be reckoned with. With her detailed custom hardware and unique design techniques, Aimee Kestenberg is here to stay.
