Nolcha Fashion Week: New York presented by RUSK, now in its sixth year, is pleased to announce that Homanz will be joining the schedule in September 2013 for the Spring/Summer 2014 collections as Official Handbag Brand.

Designer Shirley Tsang shares: “I am excited and glad to be participating and presenting my handbag collection at Nolcha Fashion Week. It’s going to be an amazing opportunity to showcase my brand, to meet other designers and other people in the fashion and media industries. I love to design and create unique things and share them with everyone. Now that I have found the best place for my brand to be recognized, I’m excited for Nolcha Fashion Week!”

The Spring/Summer 2014 collection is a blend between contemporary and classic style, simple outlook and timeless design, which unfolds the elegance and inner beauty of modern women. The core design concept revolves around the pleasure and satisfaction that modern women seek to obtain in their daily lives. Her exclusive ‘ring pattern’ design symbolizes a ‘Perfect Life’ that every woman aspires to, and exhibits the brand’s dedication in fulfilling the women’s need. Shirley hopes that every woman who uses her handbags can apprehend her inner joy and pride.

The inspiration for this collection comes from Shirley’s father who has worked in a handbag factory for thirty years. She developed a strong interest in handbags from a young age but pursued her education obtaining a diploma and a degree in Fine Arts. Still filled with her passion for handbags she asked her Father to let her work in his factory, but for fear of it being too harsh for her he said no. Shirley decided to make a wallet especially for her Father, which impressed him and convinced him to allow Shirley into the factory to learn the craft of handbag manufacturing. She continued practicing her design techniques by making handbags as presents for family and friends and in 2006 the “Homanz” brand was born.

Shirley comments, “I am lucky to live in this fashionable era, to be able to travel and visit several different countries, to take and pursue inspiration from different cultures. In each of my quarterly design series, I feature unique seasonal colors and elements to appeal to women’s natural glamour and flair.”

Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week shares; “The team are excited to unveil Homanz latest creations. She has a diverse range of bags that suit the modern women’s various needs whilst still be fashionable and chic. Keep a look out for the collaboration she is launching with a well known fashion blogger.”
