Meet five designers showing at Frost: Fashion Denver's Holiday Market
The Bustle Pack's truly unique design takes the purse to the next level as a wearable accessory. In what creator Lillian Kafka aptly describes as an "1880s throwback," the functional piece becomes as integral to the wearer's outfit as pants or a shirt. The hip-slung design with accentuated ruffles simultaneously blends into an ensemble while standing out, all while hiding pockets for use as a purse.
"It's blurring the lines between your outfit and your utility," explains Kafka. Designed for her own use as a purse alternative for a trip to the Burning Man festival, Kafka was soon fielding orders for Bustle Packs. Now available through her website and in several Denver shops, the brightly colored, strongly stitched zipper bags are getting some serious attention.
In the coming year, Kafka hopes to expand into the realm of sustainability, and she'll start by showing some pieces made from reclaimed vintage fabric at this weekend's market. All Bustle Packs retail for $65; for more information of Kafka's eye-catching designs, visit her website.
