Where did your interest in fashion start?
I love shopping, but one day I decided to buy vintage fabric and create my own handbag (hence the name T-Bags). I would add embellishment or just magic marker onto the bags. I loved the feeling of creating something! … and received more compliments on my bags than the bags that I would buy!

What is your design background?
After graduating from Boston University with a BS in Finance, I attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.
What has your experience been creating clothes
for such a broad range of sizes?
I love that anyone can wear T Bags Los Angeles. It is so versatile!
A little mix of everything. Its casual, eclectic, bohemian, vintage or modern depending on my mood. It’s not forced. It just comes naturally. Therefore, it is authentic and personal, when put together. That’s how I describe the T Bags woman as well. She is someone who is comfortable with her own style.
I design what I would love to wear!
