this week I was at a shop near my house in Wicker Park, Chicago, and discovered a woman who was wearing a Rustic Clay Lauren bag. I was thrilled to see a stranger wearing one of the Brynn Capella bags, so I went to speak with her. She told me that she purchased the Lauren at the one of A Kind show last year, and discussed with an ear-to-ear smile that it was still her favorite bag.
It made me pleased to see a local customer who had fallen in love with the brand. As we were talking, she discussed that she was a neighbor of Brynn’s as well, and told me that she had just seen her last week. The opportunity to have this sort of relationship with the people who design the products they wear is too uncommon.
It’s refreshing to not only have the chance to purchase a product that supports local company and manufacturing, but that also gives a community the opportunity to connect with people they might not have met otherwise. As an intern at Brynn Capella, Inc. I am thrilled to learn much more not only about design, but also about building a community. check out the 2016 One-Of-Kind show next week to try on a Brynn Capella Bag and meet the designer herself!
