At the young age of fifteen, Antoinette knew design was her future. Expressing herself through her clothing; she learned to sew and quickly began designing accessories and clothing of her own. Antoinette Lee came from a long line of artistic talent. In 1941, her grandmother won a nationwide design contest for Glamour Magazine. Her winning design was worn on the cover by the famous actress and fashion icon, Claudette Colbert. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Apparel Design, Antoinette moved to Manhattan to pursue her dream. Working in the fashion industry for close to five years, at the age of twenty-five, she was ready to branch out on her own. Soon after in 2005, Antoinette Lee Designs was born. Antoinette’s collections represent fashionable yet functional handbags that are ultimately unforgettable. “Instead of choosing a handbag to match an outfit, women should choose an outfit to match their handbag. Handbags are self defining, and should be the main focus of an outfit.” Each handbag is crafted in New York City with careful detail and workmanship. Antoinette is launching her new line of handbags and is looking forward to contributing her one-of-a-kind designs to stylish, fashion-forward women everywhere!
