Arza Gilad

"I believe that less is more. My handbag designs are simple, smart, unique, and sophisticated."

Arza Gilad's guiding design principle is straightforward: to create clean yet sophisticated styles—with a twist. "Hands-free" is a concept she emphasizes with each of her designs, which incorporate large openings that slip over the wrist like a bracelet.

Arza begins her design process in an unexpected place: the New York City subway. Starting with a paper sketch, the artist works with leather to transform her vision into wearable works of art. The resulting pieces are defined by dramatic silhouettes, rich colors, and graphic printed interiors.

She received a degree in printed textile design from Shenkar College of Fashion and Textile Technology in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
