North East Exclusive February 2006

North East Exclusive Magazine features HaveToLove owner Kate Walton's Handbag collection.

Charming Baggage

Designer Kate's travels inspire her new collection

Handbag designer Kate Walton has more than charmed fans of her goregous designer handbags. Her new collection for her company havetohold is dripping with inspiration from far shores. Kate, from Gosforth, has called her new bag designs after some of her favourite places - check out Positano, Amalfi and Roma.

She's also chuffed to bits after being one of the 30 UK women to be shortlisted for the Women Entrepreneur Awards run by Grazia Magazine.

Attention to detail in terms of leathers and finishes - metallics and pearlised leathers are particularly eye-catching, give the designs individuality, says Kate.

She's a fashion graduate of Northumbria University and uses one-off jewels and accessories to finish off each bag.

"Each bag is unique" she says "This season the Positano has been really popular with its suede fringe detailing and charms." The bags can be designed in your choice of leather and suede colour or texture.
