The story of a strong, beautiful Guyanese woman and her handbag(s)…Part Two

Awhile ago, I posted some still life images of handbags created by the talented Julie of Moruka Designs (which can be seen here). Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with Julie again, this time on a Lifestyle shoot. She offered to play model with her handmade work and so we headed to the Conservatory Gardens of Central Park for our session.

She was very brave to shed her jacket for these first images. It was definitely a brisk spring day! She looks absolutely amazing though! Love her natural hair…

This smaller clutch, with the optional chain, is perfect for a date night when you just need your phone and lipgloss! And the color combo is fresh :)

I just had to take a shot of her shoes! Love!

Julie handcrafts each bag from scratch in her home studio. I love the variety of fabrics and styles. She’s constantly re-working her clutches to add depth to the line of bags. Recently, she’s been featured in some trunk shows and I think it’s only a matter of time before you start seeing her work everywhere! Michael Kors better watch out :)

We finished the session at my home studio, where I did some more still life stuff. I adore the patterns she uses inside the bags. And the hand-sewn, embroidered logo is the perfect finishing touch to these beauties!
