The Independent Handbag Designer Awards

We are excited to announce that we have been chosen as a finalist for the UBM Best Handbag in Overall Style and Design in the Independent Handbag Designer Awards! The Independent Handbag Designer Awards is run by Emily Blumenthal who is also the author of Handbag Designer 101. The annual awards show’s purpose is to put the spotlight on up-and-coming handbag designers.


Best Handbag Overall Style & Design


The competition is intense, but I hope you will agree that our Celina bag is up for the challenge. Handcrafted by Tuscan artisans using the finest pebbled textured leather, the Celina bag has been designed with you and the next generation in mind. This timeless bag will take you from classy to casual with a click of a clasp, or two.

As part of the selection process, we put together a video that tells you a little bit more about our founder, the inspiration behind the brand and what it will mean for illicia to win the Award. Check out this video

Most importantly though, you can help us win the Accessories Magazine Audience Fan Favourite! Click here and vote for our Celina Bag– results will be announced live in NYC on the 13th of June!

Thank you

Team illicia
