At our latest #OnAir we shared a passion for handbags thanks to the amazing Denise Barrett, who revealed much about bags, the history of handbags - from Da Vinci to Miuccia Prada - and their psychology.
Denise took us through a journey of fabulous bags and her own personal favourites from the V&A exhibition, which will hopefully reopen after lock down.
Then once we’d seen some of Denise’s exquisite bags, including the stunning butterfly bag below, we each shared stories of favourite bags, their special memories and the occasions on which we enjoyed them.
And of course,
the books they’ve inspired – our own Cali Bird and ‘Tales of the Countess’ and
leadership tips for women leaders from Lynne Copp, and her go-to book for every
successful woman ‘Dancing around the Handbags’
Denise herself has enough material for what would be a beautiful coffee table book, so we’re aiming to seek out potential publishers for her!
