Cathy Christiansen was born into the modeling and fashion world with her family opening a high-end clothing store in the 60’s. Surrounded by the latest and best collections, such as Rudi Gernreich, developed her eye for design.
A successful model representing many companies such as Max Factor, Clairol, Cathy took her developed eye for design and opened a Multi Brand Showroom representing collections from all over the world.
Working with all collections she worked on design ideas and merchandising. However, she took the next step by taking her own ideas and designs to start Christiansen handbags & leathers.
Selling to top stores in America, and seen on the arms of many celebrities and high profile customers, her concept is to take exotic skins or plain leathers and create a reason to buy, always a little different, with hand stitching, lazer cutting, etc. Cool and beautiful for those who do not just want another handbag, but an interesting and unique statement.
