Diane’s bags are truly stunning. Inspired by current trends they are both unique and fashionable. Diane has been sewing since she was a teenager and is constantly teaching herself new techniques. ‘I think having some kind of creative outlet is extremely important, and I love making things. I always like to have a project on the go; it keeps me busy. I’m constantly being inspired by what I see online and in magazines, and the smallest little detail can give me a new idea.’
Diane tends to not use patterns for her bags, but creates her own unique designs making no two bags the same. They are simple, practical, durable and unique. They’re made with care and attention to detail. ‘I love strong colours, patterns, buttons, birds, polka dots, leaves, lovely fabrics… all of these elements (and more) are embodied in my designs.’
