Glenda Gies Designs

Vintage inspired handbags and accessories

Bringing old Hollywood glamour and sophistication to a whole new generation of fashionable women, Philadelphia- based designer Glenda Gies has traveled around the world and back again to find one-of-a-kind vintage fabrics for her name-sake line of upscale handbags.

My inspiration began when traveling abroad. I fell in love with sophisticated European culture and fashion of London and Paris. While shopping on Portobello Road, I was struck by the workmanship and unique design of accessories from the 1940’s and 50’s . When I returned stateside, I spent endless hours researching vintage handbags and textiles. It was then that I was compelled to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a designer.
