Who are you? 
I am rebellious.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
When I originally went to design my duffel, I wanted an all black bag with a red interior. I really like pieces that are classic and work with my wardrobe. I felt like a black bag would go with everything. In the normal world, it’s not rare for me to go from the gym to work and then out to an event in one day. I needed a carryall that was stylish. However, an all black bag, while classic, was boring. So, I decided to go bald with a completely orange bag and keep the bright red interior.

ELI

Who are you? 
We are all collections of our mutual experiences. I'm a writer, scholar, organizer, educator, and individual with many lived histories. I'm also a queer trans woman, and proud of it!

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
Often, I'm drawn to plain (aka boring) attire because I know it will match with clothing I already have. I decided on the unique black woven leather backpack because it's flexible but still has a fun flare to show off to the world.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?
Preparedness. I never know when I'll need anything. Therefore, having a bag of tricks ensures that I'm ready for an impromptu shoot or unplanned overnight stay.

SANY

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?

I picked the Diva Carryall bag because of two things. The first being its size. I am always hopping between places so I love how it's large enough to hold everything that I need. I travel so much and this bag is the perfect size. The second reason is because the design is unique but also very chic!

 

What does your bag say about you?

That I love to travel and I love little bold accent pieces.

Who are you?

“I am a Black woman, an artist, and a truth-teller who seeks deep connection, authenticity, and genuine love in the space I occupy—which is diverse, inclusive, creative, community-focused, and truly rooted in building equity for black folks. I am a daughter, raised by two visionaries who never accepted the status quo. In 1980, my parents created the Malcolm Brown Gallery, the first for-profit Black-owned art gallery in the US. At the time, the story of Black American art was incomplete—and it still is. The gallery closed in 2011, but I re-launched it in 2022 to carry on their legacy. I am the mother of two incredible young men. Happy Pride Month, Avery! And shout out to Isaac as he completes his junior year!” If you know me—you know I go hard for my kids—all day every day. Children are precious gifts from God. For all the families (no matter your definition of family) raising kids; you know that it’s joyful, but it is hard work and it’s a lifetime commitment of support—of their whole selves—that is our charge as parents while they navigate life—especially as parents of Black children.

Why did you design the bag you did? Why did you select the style? Leather?

I designed this bag because the shape was very round and unique. I decided to choose this style of leather because I like luxe items. I am also very colorful, so I needed something to represent ME!


What does your bag say about you?

My bag says that I am a risk taker. It is a bold and beautiful accessory.
