3 years ago when I visited WAMP (check this article) for the first time, I immediately fell in love with bags designed by Ágnes Havrán. Ágnes who graduated in the Packaging and Typography Design at Moholy-Nagy University of Craft and Design in Budapest, was always interested in creating self-closing boxes. She started to make bags 8 years ago, using Italian leather, sometimes coloring it, every product is one-of-a-kind.
At the beginning she became successful abroad (Belgium, France, England, Austria, Poland), where her bags and purses became very popular and you can buy them in couple of shops, especially in Wien.
Once in Wien she stopped by car before a crosswalk, a girl passed in front of her wearing a Havrán bag on her shoulder, another time she visited a restaurant where the owner recognized her and started to enumerate the amount of Havrán bags she has. Ágnes told me she receives dozens of thanking and praising emails and this is her biggest award, which motivates her.
Two years ago she started to design clothes as well, which were presented and sold this year in her Wien shops. Ágnes opened her own Budapest showroom in 2011, for visiting please reserve an appointment via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
