Katie Cassidy and Nola Randall, Founders and Designers of Cassidy Randall
Creating Handbags for Women That Refuse to Sacrifice Practicality and Quality for Style
This is where Nola Randall comes in. Born on the West Coast of Canada in Vancouver, Nola grew up surrounded by natural beauty. Her picturesque surroundings of the ocean, mountains and trees all helped her to develop her unique knack for putting colors and textures together. This knack was further perfected upon moving to New York in 2000 through her experience as an interior designer, having designed apartments and restaurants in the New York area.
So on one special girls’ night in during the fall of 2008, the two women decided to merge their individual skills and talents to launch their first collection of luxurious yet edgy handbags. In addition to their ambitious, entrepreneurial streak, the two women’s shared love of fashion, design, and attention to detail made the pair the perfect design duo. Taking the hands on approach to the extreme, Katie and Nola tend to literally every little detail on each of their bags. They are integrally involved in every step of the design process from the sourcing and handpicking of the leather, to the zippers, trimmings and straps. To say that each bag is made with love doesn't even cover it!
Prices for the collection range from $160 to $395, and all handbags are manufactured in New York, NY. For more information on Cassidy Randall or to browse the online boutique please visit www.CassidyRandall.com.
