Its always so nice to see Buttons and Bows LA customers doing amazing things in this world and with a voice like that we can not wait to see Fiona live next time she's back in LA!!!!!! Plus, everything Fiona is rocking is straight from the Buttons and Bows LA closet and I had so much fun helping Fiona grab some items for this video shoot!

BBLA BRANDS WE LOVE: Introducing Lauren Cecchi New York






Good day there Buttons and Bows homies!!!!! Tis I, Roderick and with so many brands and labels sprouting up all the DAMN time, we figured we should start introducing some of the new up and comers and brands we love to our readers and customers. Also, how insane is it when we actually get these dope pieces in stores for you to buy!!!!! I know… I’m just as excited as you are!!!!

The story behind this label and how it came on our radar here at BBLA is suuuuuper random. So back in late 2012, I (Roderick) was chosen as one of the top 5 candidates to vie for an assistant buying position with Gilt Groupe on a show called The Job. Of course, my/our episode did not end up ever airing but I ended up bonding with all the contestants and kept in touch, via how folks keep in touch now days in 2013 (Twitter, Fbook, Insta… etc.).


*Lauren Cecchi (in Red) and I with the other 3 contestants during taping of The Job on CBS*


 Lauren Cecchi, one of the contestants, was rocking this great looking bag on her instagram account and I realized she started a new line and immediately told her I had to rep her bags in Cali!!!! Like I HAD TOOO!!!! It was that serious and the bags are as well. Simple, classic, and dare I sound ridiculous and cheesy, but incredibly chic!

And now we are here… I’m super stoked to introduce you all to Lauren Cecchi New York ! All handmade in the New York city’s garment district and materials all sourced from the US as well!!!!  So as it’s now coming up on the end of Lauren Cecchi New York Fall 2012 outreach, this first season of hers definitely set the tone for the years to come. Not only will Lauren Cecchi New York be featured on the show, The Good Wife, in its 1st episode airing in the new year, but she also landed a booth at this coming ENK for Fraiche @ Circuit, which is a new platform for emerging accessories designers showcasing handpicked labels based on their creative skills, craftsmanship, quality and originality.
Right now you can order a Lauren Cecchi bag online at http://www.mcssl.com/store/laurencecchi. and any West Coast retailers looking to possibly carry the bags, don’t be shy to reach out to me at  Roderick@laurencecchi.com.
