Some people are obsessed with carrying famous brand name bags while some have eyes for them but are mainly focused on carrying a bag that is cute, well-made but most importantly draws attention with its impeccable and 21st century design. If you are one of the ladies that falls in the latter category, I have put together a few handbag designers I love and are worth checking out. It does not always have to be about Gucci, Prada and the famous YSL that everyone and their mama wants to carry ūüôā Even the IT girls in Fashion were¬†spotted carrying these cuties.

These are brilliant and stylish designers you should consider for your wardrobe. Not all options are too expensive if you do not mind shedding a few of hundreds.
