Trunk Show: Paige Hamilton & Karolina Zmarlak

Posted by on 1:56 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We’re excited to bring you New York’s top emerging talent! Discover the stylish affordable bags from Paige Hamilton and modern silhouettes from Karolina Zmarlak at our very special Trunk Show. It’s only two days- now through tomorrow 10/29!

Design runs in Paige Hamilton’s genes and it was inevitable that after living and working in London, San Francisco, Boston and New York, she’d start her own design company. Inspired by not having the perfect bag to schlep from home to gym to work to social events, in 2005 she decided to launch Paige Hamilton Design. Practical function meets beautiful form in these handbags! They’re specially designed with everything you need to change the way you carry your life. All her products are manufactured in the USA.

Originally from Poland, award winning designer, Karolina Zmarlak specialized in fine tailoring, studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Karolina honed her skills at Carolina Herrera and Theory before launching her eponymous line with partner Jesse Keyes. You can find her collection at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and for 2 days only, The Lake Forest Shop!

Infusing her Polish heritage into her collection, elements of Eastern European minimalism can be found in her creative vision. The collection is designed and produced in New York’s Garment District under the designer’s hands-on exacting standards.
