Jennifer Hamley England – Luxury Work Bags, That Work.
I’ve spent months searching for user-friendly but stylish work bags, currently hauling my belonging around in two bags; one dull masculine generic laptop bag, accommodating all my work paraphernalia including: Laptop, chargers, note books, pens, phone, files etc and a more stylish handbag for personal items; purse, keys, make-up, etc etc. Moving items between the two as required, basically a right blooming palava!! But my hankering for a universal solution, combining the style of a handbag with the functionality of my BORING laptop bag remained allusive and unsatisfied until…..
Found it, the PERFECT Work Bag:
At the first ever 30-40+ Blogger Meet we were introduced to Jennifer Hamley, a independent British designer of luxury work bags.

And Jen’s Back Story is as Inspirational as Her Bags:
In Her Own Words….
Up until about two years ago I was running a different business. I was the designer and maker of creative feather hair accessories. I’ve always wanted to work for myself and have always been a creative, so it was the perfect venture for me at the time.
At the same time I was getting tired and restless with what I was making – I wanted to escape from the wedding industry and instead start doing what I’ve always wanted to do; Design luxury handbags for women that WORK. My desire to achieve more led me to the London College of Fashion and to a course in Handbag design.
I was thrilled and I was terrified. I knew I wanted to make a change, but how would I take on the world of handbags? It was such a huge leap for me!
Then one weekend in February 2014 I attended a weekend course called ‘Unlocking the Will to Act’ and I spoke to the trainer’s daughter. She asked me what my plans were for the future. I told her that I had a business, but that one day my big dream was to have my own high-end handbag label. She then asked me these magic questions which changed everything.
‘When? ’ and ‘Why not now? ‘
With current debate surrounding staying in or leaving the EU and regardless of your preference, it’s highlighted supporting homegrown British business. Something I’m passionate about, we have such a reservoir of talent in the UK and the opportunity to buy my PERFECT work bags from an emerging English designer satisfies all my cravings, so I bought one!
Here’s How to Buy Yours:
The Jennifer Hamley range is available on: Jenny Hamley Website – The ModelKT Retails at £395.00
