Ok so, after the last post, I got busy sewing a dozen pleated clutches, and ironing those pleats over and over so they would stay in place and fall nicely. once I finished putting together the pleated exteriors with the flaps and linings, I felt a great sense of accomplishment ( especially since I managed to stab myself only 5 times in the process.
But after looking at them, I must say I felt a little disappointed, the pleats were nice but something wasn’t working for me. And then I figured that the proportions were off, the clutch was too long for its height :
So I decided to play around with the bags a bit and figured it would look better two pleats instead of three on each side. So now, back to work, taking them apart and recutting them to the smaller size! I will be posting (better) pictures of the finished pieces soon (hopefully)!
For the coming fall/winter collection I decided to experiment with pleats; I really like mixing textures and i thought pleats would create an interesting detail for the large clutches. So here is a little preview of Kamoka pleated clutches:
Well it’s officially summer here in the north Hemisphere, which means it’s time to get the fall collection ready. After a couple weeks gathering trends and ideas, I was finally ready to commit to my fall collection and seriously start thinking about fabric, so I ordered about a million samples to play around with and decided to base the collection on two axes : cool hues and warm tones.
Here is a sneak peek of what to expect for the Kamoka fall collection. More pictures will be posted soon as I go along conceptualizing and putting things together.

So after looking at all of these gorgeous summer designer bags and drooling over the Bottega Veneta website, I was left with a major need of buying one of those colorful bags. Unfortunately – or should I say thankfully – my paycheck doesn’t allow me to spend a couple thousands of dollars on bags or shoes. So I have been hunting down cheaper alternatives. So for those of you, like me, who are on a budget, here are some stylish, colorful bags perfect for summer, all under $200.
