So many handbags, shoes and accessories and not enough personal stylists to organize it all for us! While shopping at The Weekender in Dallas at The W Hotel this past weekend, I met my long lost fairy closet godmother, Leslie Fuller, founder and owner of Bagadocious.
When a girl truly loves her handbags she will do just about anything to protect her treasures, and Fuller understood the need for it to be protected from dirt, dust and any other critters that may inhabit our closets. Realizing this was an untapped need, she started Bagadocious a few years ago, after the constant frustration while getting dressed and not being able to find that purse, those shoes, or that accessory in her closet with only a few minutes to dash out of the door. The story of how all fashionistas lives–and we all know how it feels when we have to show up with another choice, only because we couldn’t find what we truly wanted to wear!
The concept was quite innovative, Fuller found the materials that would not only protect, but condition and nourish her handbags. The covers are designed with 100-percent natural fabrics coupled with the Bagadocious custom personalized, patented process. Leslie Fuller not only considered the functionality of the covers, but also the shape and how the covers would sit on closet shelves. The complete model is practical, systematized and, ultimately, trendy.
Bagadocious bags are made using photos of your very own handbags, making each bag a custom, personalized collectible. The process is very simple. You submit an image of your actual bag, shoes, or accessory, and that image is placed on the type of dust bag you’ve chosen, and you’re on your way to getting your fashion closet organized.
The enterprising handbag cover queen started her business by sending custom covers to her daughter’s friends, then to her girlfriends, setting up kiosks at trade shows and retail stores and, finally, launching the Bagadocious website. Fuller believes that the current Bagadocious customer fits this blueprint–someone who is persnickety about their handbags, shoes, or accessories, usually has sizeable collections and has an interest in preservation of their fashion pieces.
The most fascinating project Bagadocious has completed thus far was for a client in England who wanted to protect two of her 29 x 26, extra large briefcases which she loans out for placement in movies. Bagadocious has gone Hollywood, participated in the MTV Movie Awards Gifting Suite hosted by WOW Creations, and has supported several local organizations such as Simply Grace, The Red Pump Project and the Silver Dollar Ball, just to name a few.
You can find out more about Bagadocious via their website or by emailing Leslie personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll be thrilled, and her prices are less expensive than that personal stylist you’ve been trying to hire, trust me.
