Inspiring Latina of the Week: Handbag Designer Sandra Reiman

Your handbags have been worn by numerous celebrities. How did it feel to reach that kind of world-wide status?  

It's been an incredible journey so far and I feel like I haven't even scratched the surface. There is so much more to be done! 

Do you have a designer who inspired you to get into this field of work?

There are so many designers that inspire me in general- Botega, Nancy Gonzales, Rebecca Minkoff- to name a few. The inspiration behind my entering the industry was my husband. 

Being Colombian, how do you feel that your heritage plays a role in your design?

Being Colombian and experiencing such beautiful culture and people serves as my inspiration to create the designs that bring to life the very art they have mastered for centuries.
