Now that we are in our new space and settled in, we are beginning to work on a calendar of pop-up shows to host in our new showroom. We want to be able to invite vendors that offer product that we love and enable our clients to meet the artists, touch the product and see what we see in all its glory. Be sure to add yourself to the mailing list so you never miss an event!
Our first event, on November 4th, features Frankie Thieriot Stutes and her Frankie Cameron hide bag line. Hide has been a favorite of mine for some time now. I have a small collection of hide bags and clutches that I covet and I often use hide in my home as well as in my clients’ homes in the form of rugs and upholstery. I appreciate that Frankie looks at each bag as a piece of art and takes the time to match the leather, hide, or fabric to create beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that should be on everyone’s arm! I am so excited to have her be our first pop-up and cannot wait for you all to meet her and see her incredible work. Frankie took a few minutes to answer some of our questions about her brand and products!
Hope you enjoy the read and don’t forget to save the date!
We asked Frankie just how Frankie Cameron came about…
"Frankie Cameron came about after discovering a need for a functional and fashionable diaper bag after having my first child in 2015. Convinced that women shouldn’t have to waste money on a bag they wouldn’t be able to use after the baby was born, I set out to find a practical and stylish solution. A few diapers and bottle spills later, the idea of Frankie Cameron’s zip in zip out liners were born. After giving it more thought, I realized that some of my favorite handbags over the years had been thrown out because the interior had become trashed and soon realized that I wanted to create handbags for every stage of life. I set off to Leon, Mexico in search of a great material resource. I first wanted to find the most incredible leather and after a lot of research I felt this could be found in one of the leather capitals of the world, Leon, Mexico. Handcrafted from authentic cowhide and genuine leather, I strongly believe in limiting waste by using the entire hide. As a result, each bag is unique in color and texture, making every Frankie Cameron a one-of-a-kind piece."
"Frankie Cameron was created to be a brand and a product that people really love and use daily. My goal is to grow the collection as much as I can with my priority always being quality and attention to detail. Our newest collection, coming out later this season, includes a duffle bag with a washable liner as well as a leather backpack."
Frankie Cameron gives a portion of every sale to support an amazing non-profit, Project Night Night. They support homeless children and really make an incredible difference and I am really proud to give back through them.
