Accessories - Kelly Clutch

  • Constructed handbag for Handbag Design & Construction II class as part of my AAS in Accessories Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I decided to create a rectangular clutch that fit comfortably in my hand but was still spatious enough to be functional.
  • The base for this bag was a box made out of chipboard.
  • I then added a layer of padding and wrapped the chipboard box with striped leather.
  • Front view after attaching the sidebands, latch flap, and latch.
  • Back view of the latch flap.
  • Fuchsia bengaline lining and inner gussets.
  • The finished bag.
