India has always been known to be a conservative country with its body-conscious styles of the past, but defined its fashions with brilliant coloring schemes and an attention-to-detail stitching and embroidery. Lately, India is being pushed to its limits with huge influences from the Western culture, and Espelho designs prove to be on top in Indian fashions.

With its eco-friendly and totally vegan designs, bagistas can feel no remorse for looking so utterly stylish with their tough yet feminine handbags. Based out of Los Angeles, Urban Expressions allows the green movement to stay current, fresh, and up-to-date with modern fashions and trends. Many of their current designs feature the spot-on trend known as studs, and also maintain modern shape and structure.
With the Eco-friendly craze on the rise, many fashions are being labeled "green" in order to jump on the bandwagon. That's when we as consumers need to sit back and decide for ourselves how "Eco-friendly" a brand or handbag truly is. If you're going to make a purchase and want to use your buying power to help the environment, you want to make sure you're doing just that. As an Eco-friendly fashionista, I'm here to help you skip a step! First and foremost leather is extremely toxic to our environment and a huge contributor to the depletion of our natural resources.
It's a known fact that styles and trends in fashion are recycled over time. The hippy look is as popular today as it was in the 60s, fanny packs are back on the scene, and people are sporting plaid and leather more than any grunge rock star in the 90s. Truly talented designers understand that fashion isn't only about creating something completely new, but that it's just as important to take something old and re-work it into a great product that is both relevant and fashionable in the present.
It can be a challenge to find the perfect bag that fits with your increasingly busy lifestyle. Crystal Haylett, designer and founder of Elly Clay, created a wonderful solution in her line of handbags. I had a chance to ask Crystal some questions about her business (which, btw, is only two years old!), her favorite bag, and her plans for a vegan line of bags!
