How did She Start Her Handbag Designer Career?

  • Christine Baumgartner’s career as a handbag designer started by accident.  
  • While talking with Denver Post, she revealed how she needed a bag but couldn’t find any and designed them herself.

I didn’t start because I loved handbags; I started because I was missing something. I use a computer quite a bit and travel a lot. I looked for a computer bag, and they functioned, but I didn’t find anything that was right for me. When I came up with some samples, I showed them to Kevin, and he said they were beautiful and amazing. He told me I should take it to the next step and he’d help me.
