I was particularly excited to learn of LaBosh Handbags because the designer and I both attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (aka FIDM) in Los Angeles. Tosha Cole Clemens uses her love of fashion to bring awareness to social issues. “Seeing my own design made into a product is truly amazing, but knowing that a young woman may have a better chance in life because someone bought one of my bags is even better.”
LaBosh is a vintage inspired line that combines old Hollywood glamour with contemporary modern hardware. It consists of shoulder bags, clutches, overnight bags, makeup bags, and wallets. The Vamp collection features a metallic snakeskin pattern and quilted leather in vibrant colors. The Boudoir collection blends leather with romantic jacquard prints. My favorite is the Edna from the Vamp Collection which happens to be pictured on the left (reasonably priced at $185).
A percentage of sales from LaBosh Handbags are donated to Mercy Ministries, an organization that provides refuge and resources to young women struggling with life-controlling issues. LaBosh is available in boutiques in Los Angeles and Colorado and can be purchased online at www.labosh.com.
