I am pretty sure that most of you girls out there have a fetish for bags just like I have. I don’t know, but there is something about bags whether it’s a handbag, a sling bag, a tote bag, you name it and I not only own them but adore them too. Whenever I see a bag I feel there is some energy coming from it and its like telling me buy me please, take care of me, use me and I will be with you forever as your best friend. Hehehe, too emotional I got right? Ahh, that’s my love for bags, which cannot be expressed even in 160 characters to tweet. 😛
So when one of my friends, Triseta Fernandes who hails from a fashion background, having done her graduation in Arts from the prestigious St. Xavier’s College and her fashion designing course from B D Somani Institute of Arts & Fashion mentioned to me about her newly launched brand of bags, Turquoise and Lemon, I was going gaga not only over the fantabulous designs but the fact that the prices were absolutely budget friendly. Just to mention here that she has also won the fashion designer of the year award for consecutive 3 years during her college days.
She had been a bag lover herself, who like me does not keep a count of the bags she owns. For her, bags not only brighten her day but are her stress busters too. Quite amazing isn’t it? Her passion and love for bags can easily be seen in her designs and the quality of the fabrics she uses.
Her story isn’t an ordinary one, when asked how she came up with Turquoise and Lemon, she said “My story might be quite weird, but yes how my love for bags grew when I made my first bag (stitched it myself) from my mom’s old nightie, which was from Bangkok and had a beautiful scenic print on it, which is why I didn’t want to part away with it. Family and friends all loved it!! That’s how I started Turquoise and Lemon, self-stitched totes and sold them in fun and lively pops colors and combination. Every bag I stitched gave me that personal satisfaction”.
I was amazed that her love for bags knew no bounds and how starting with baby steps she finally established a good base for her brand of bags. Today she has launched leather bags but using only faux leather and thus making it environmental friendly. Isn’t that a kind gesture to be concerned about Mother Nature? 🙂
So I asked her how is Turquoise and Lemon different from the other brands. She said “Find the perfect bag that nails your PERSONALITY! Turquoise and Lemon designs are flamboyant, classy, stylish, trendy, quirky and eye-catching bags that are tailor made to fit your personality. From unique pop art prints to color blocked goodness to classic trends to stylish construction, each turquoise and lemon bag is absolutely original”.
The latest collection features monsoon friendly laptop bags, totes, duffle bags, hobo bags and a lot more that are up-to-date on the fashion front. Unique, fashionable and on point, Turquoise and Lemon are the absolute must-have accessory this season!
Her wish is that everyone from a teen to an adult should love to wear bags. To fulfill this wish she takes customized orders, so you can now have a bag that not only speaks your mind but also shows off your personality, after all bags are one’s personal extension. She also designs for every age group, so fret not, I am sure you will find your match.
I have totally gone gaga over the bags, if you too agree with me, head over to her Facebook page Turquoise and Lemon and browse through her amazing collection of bags. You also can order directly through her Facebook page by messaging her there.
I am ordering my bag right away, what are you waiting for, hurry up and bag it the Turquoise and Lemon way. 🙂
