Spring is here and we are getting ready for lots of fun festivities with the perfect accessories for every occasion. We’ve found two local experts who took design into their own hands, have very successful businesses, and have created some beautiful and functional options.
Why did you decide to launch your own label?
The opportunity presented itself, it became very obvious that there was a market and a demand.
What is the creative inspiration for your collection?
Flowers, hands down.
Who are your style icons?
It truly comes from a magnitude of people, but more and more my inspiration is coming less from actual people and more of curate concept stores and the brands themselves. With fashion week happening currently, I have taken lots of cues from Brock Collection, Rodarte, and Ulla Johnson.
What colors/designs are featured in your Spring/Summer 2020 collection?
You will see lots of florals, more colors and mixing of colors than usual.
What’s your vision for the future of your brand?I hope for the near future I get to see Nicola Bathie grow to places I could never imagine.
When it comes to large crowded events, local law enforcement recommends everyone to carry a clear bag. Most stadiums even require it. Whether you’re going to a parade or a spring sporting event, a clear bag is the way to go.
Luckily, we didn’t have to look far for fashionable clear purses designed for security and convenience. Local, woman-owned, company SCORE! Game Day Bags are perfect for any event. Six of SCORE!’s styles are stadium compliant, and make getting through security lines quick and easy.
quality bag to match my favorite team color combos. I wanted a designer style handbag that would last through the seasons. Then it came down to style- designing what I liked and knew I would enjoy.
What are your favorite accessories to wear to Fiesta Events?
My outfit is always combinations of bright, spring colors and I accessorize with big, bold jewelry, a flower crown with curly ribbons and my matching SCORE! Game Day Bag.
