The countdown to Nolcha Shows starts now. Just to remind you what the buzz is all about at the Nolcha Shows, we will be bringing you one designer per week from the Nolcha Shows.

To kick things off we have Riley Versa. Riley Versa offer up a line of bags created with the idea that one bag really can have it all. You no longer have to choose between the practical neutral tone and the season’s hottest trend. Riley Versa’s interchangeable magnetic covers allow you to be boldly VERSA-tile with your fashion choices at all times. By seamlessly switching the exterior of your bag, you can transform it into a completely new bag in seconds.

A few words to describe the collection that you will be showing at Nolcha this season.

Versatile, unique, fun and edgy! Riley Versa bags are the ultimate fashion accessory: they enable women to express themselves with the season’s hottest trends and have fun doing it! Women can select a cover according to their mood – from Blushing Beauty (rose quartz pink) to Wild Thing (blue crocodile) we have you “covered.”

 You say there are no rules in fashion and we agree, but what’s the one rule that you live by and apply in your business and life?

It must go in the calendar. I live and die by my calendar. Whether it’s a dinner date with girlfriends or a deadline for Riley Versa, it must go in the calendar.

 Your idea was to create a handbag that has it all. How are you going to keep developing the brand, to ensure the Riley Versa bag is the only bag a woman needs?

I’m going to continue to introduce exciting new covers for the current bags, while expanding the collection with new bags in different shapes and sizes.

 What is the one item you feel every woman must have in their handbag?

A great, nude lip gloss.
