Showcasing new and emerging fashion talent from our region is something I take pride in. And recently I have been contacted by Bahraini handbag designer and entrepreneur Sofia Al Asfoor, who's mission is to bring the best Bahrain has to offer to the rest of the gulf and beyond.
After getting her training from London College of Fashion, Parsons New York, and Istituto Europeo di Design, Sofia Al Asfoor worked diligently for 3 consecutive years to design and produce an extraordinary set of luxury handbags made from genuine and exotic leather in the most beautiful and the brightest mouthwatering shades. The design is distinctive by its pyramid shapes and origami-like details, giving the bag a very modern, on-the-go feel that's equally suited for a day of shopping or work.
And even though I haven't seen the bags up-close, but I'll take the overdressed's word (and stunning photos!) for it. The photos on her blog (shown below) and on Sofia's website just show how well-crafted the bags are. Sofia is due to receive her first delivery very soon, and they will be sold at Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain.
