Rafé Totengco, award-winning accessories designer leads a busy and exciting life. He launched Rafé New York in 1997 and has grown it into a world-renowned handbag brand, carried by an international array of boutiques and department stores, not to mention a bevy of young, fashionable stars. His success landed him the position of Creative Director of Handbags for The Jones Group Inc. A master of both elegant structured form and wild bohemian chicness, Rafé’s work combines a vision that is always fresh and eclectically inspired. I recently had the opportunity to ask Rafé a bit about his career and inspiration. See our interview and samples of his beautiful designs below.
