Victoria Horner’s Bamboo Handle Bag

With clean lines and vibrant style, Victoria Horner’s bags make any outfit extraordinary. Using classic shapes such as “Doctor’s Bag” and the “Jackie Clutch”, Victoria modernizes it with playful textiles that fuse the idea of retro and modern flawlessly. Her bamboo handle bag with unique fabric prints will leave you craving more.  With numerous fabrics to choose from, the wearer can express their unique identity through Victoria’s craftsmanship. Her work is not all play as it really considers the daily use of handbags, making them more accessible and comfortable for the average women.


Diane Koppisch Hricko

As a printmaker and painter, Dianne Koppisch Hricko finds a love of color and translucent depth an inspiration in working with textiles. Using images created by a variety of printmaking techniques and direct painting, her work becomes endlessly fascinating.  Her use of layered transparency through printmaking builds rich and ambiguous surfaces, creating a unique appearance of shawls, scarves and other wearable art. Because of her method, Dianne is able to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces, which are both infused with classic shapes and innovative designs. Dianne’s work gives strength to the wearer, making her confident and sure that she too is as unique as the piece that adorns her.
