I cant find the football bag anywhere - saw it once & fell in LOVE!

I love the Dora Bag! I have been a fan for many years, using the beautiful photos of her animal bags, and others, from the late 70's and 80's. The pictures were cut from Town & Country Magazine and used to inspire and release the creativity in my inner city students. Unfortunately these were lost when our basement flooded in 2003. I find, many years later, that her creations still inspire the same creativity, this time with the cancer patients I am working with. It is truly amazing the joy and hope that these patients receive from involving themselves in creative expression. The ground breaking program I am involved with deals with a whole person approach to cancer treatment, and her imagination and designs are truly an inspiration. I have used them as a starting point form several activities.

Where can I find the peacock bag from Judith? I really really want it!!!

These would be so fun paired with a wedding gown!! Nice post :)

I would like to know more about Ms. Leiber besides what is on the Wikipedia site. I was told that she ordered a handbag for a friend, but it came damaged and she glued crystals over the damaged part and that is how her business began. Is this a true story? Also, told that she makes a custom bag for each new first lady to carry to the balls. ??? Is there a limit of each design? Does she retire designs? Is gold plated used? What does she do now that she has retired? So many questions - I absolutely love the handbags. We have an exhibit of her handbags in the new Taubman Museum of Art, Roanoke, VA. The handbags belong to a private collector but Gallery Host are needed and I would like to be able to tell her history.

These are all beautiful.

all bags are beautiful
