ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

The master minds behind these AB FAB little gems are Iranian-born sisters/partners Bita and Rouzita Vahhabaghai. The ita brand was launched back in 2003, and the sisters' goal was to combine their backgrounds in graphic design and architecture in order to create a design house with a multidisciplinary approach to a wide range of projects.

Not only are they fashion designers, these ladies have also worked on a number of new homes, hotel suites, condominiums, furniture, fashion accessories and home product design. Under the ita umbrella, the sisters have introduced an array of timeless pieces with an emphasis on craftsmanship and extraordinary detail. Their new line of painstakingly fabricated handbags masterfully blend metals with leather to create a new exotic fabric that evokes the brilliance and shimmer of jewels.

Did you know that the ita designers have been named a finalist for Best Handbag in the Overall Style & Design category for the 2012 Independent Handbag Design Awards competition hosted by InStyle Magazine & Handbag Designer 101? Last weekend, the sisters had a trunk show at Henri Bendel here in New York which I sadly missed due to an overloaded schedule, but I'm keeping my eye on them, and look forward to their next round in the city!
