Fringe Handbags from Lady T: Artisan Made, Must-Have Statement Bags

Fringe Handbags from Lady T: Artisan Made, Must-Have Statement Bags

Another welcome addition to the vibrant and ever-expanding European's sustainable fashion community - Lady T.

Tania Segbefia, the brand's creator, says that her company's driving force is a strongly held belief in versatile and effortless design that “focuses on simple features, clean styles, and bold eclectic details”.

Lady T's first collection is inspired by the streetwear movement with a focus on timeless, minimalist fashion through the use of quality, black leather. The combination of intricately placed fringes and tassels, along with high-quality base materials, makes for the perfect statement bag to carry around on your shoulder for many seasons to come.

In addition, the simple features and careful design of these timeless handbags also allow for a high-level of versatility which makes for an easy augmentation when styled alongside more flamboyant and vibrant colors.

All of Lady T’s pieces are made to order and, like all designers featured on NDC, Tania and her brand hold the values of slow fashion close to heart.

Slow fashion for me means sustainability and an awakened state of being and consuming. [...] because there is a hidden price tag to fast fashion, it isn’t free. [...] It also means catering to consumers who value the provenance of a product; they care about where the product comes from and who made it. It’s about consuming responsibly.

Tania Segbefia - Founder of Lady T

To celebrate the addition of Lady T’s handbag collection we went along to ask Tania a few questions to find out more about her brand, her fashion inspirations, and her fringed statement bags.

NDC: When you’re first sitting down to design a new piece where do you take inspiration from?

Tania: From all things, really. There is no one place or one thing specifically, it’s a creative process, and it’s about being open. It comes from having a desire planted in your heart and letting that desire move you through all the things you see, feel or experience, whatever these things might be. And then you get ideas. I also look through and read a lot of magazines ;)

NDC: If you were to think about the term Slow Fashion and pinpoint exactly what it means to you, how would you define it?

Tania: Slow fashion for me means sustainability and an awakened state of being and consuming. I say an awakened state, because there is a hidden price tag to fast fashion, it isn’t free, the environment and people that work in the supply chains are paying and once you know that you come to a realization.

It also means catering to consumers who value the provenance of a product; they care about where the product comes from and who made it. It’s about consuming responsibly, stepping away from the masses, by purchasing products that are well made; from high-quality materials and most importantly made to last.

Long-Fringe Black Leather Handbags by Slow Fashion Designer Lady T

NDC: Can you tell us a little about the process behind the production of your pieces?

Tania: Because the brand is new and the collection is small, the production process is fairly simple. We are a small team of two that oversee all aspects of Lady T; from design to development, to creation and shipping. The established process from creation to shipment takes about 5 to 7 days, but we strive to ship off in 3.

NDC: Can you remember what it was that motivated you to create the Lady T brand?

Tania: My motivational factors are primarily self-expression, wanting to create and make something of my own. I believe that’s our mission in life, to go out there and create. They say that if you have a strong feeling of wanting to have something or do something, for example, play the piano, or paint, it’s usually because you can, otherwise, that feeling wouldn’t arise inside of you. So for me, knowing that is a motivation in itself. Unfortunately, though, motivation is only a small part; it doesn’t unlock the doors to success.

Flax & Kale Tallers the first Healthy Flexitarian Restaurant in Barcelona

NDC: You’re based in Barcelona, can you tell us what your favorite spot in the city is?

Tania: That’s a tough question! I love Barcelona as a city and I have so many favorite places. There are unique places that offer so many different and intriguing things! But if I have to choose just one, I’d say, I love going to Flax & Kale on Calle Tallers and going for a walk around that area afterward. It’s a cool spot, because there are usually a lot of people in the streets, people from everywhere, especially this time of year and the feeling of summer are palpable!
