ABOUT THE DESIGNER AND FOUNDER
Tyrone Duprie Brown, was born and raised in South-Central Los Angeles. His passion for women’s fashion began at an early age, inspired by his grandmother, mother and sisters. It was their femininity, their strength, their wisdom, their beauty and their sense of style which gave him the motivation and direction to create a strong and empowering collection of Handheld Art. Ty’s designs are the kind of art that brings joy and inspiration to a woman’s life. Ty’s determination and inspiration in women’s fashion and art has provided him a new path and direction in the world of fashion; fashion for now and fashion in the future.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Covid 19 has definitely made a usually smooth road not so smooth, most of my supply chain which consists of overseas manufactures have literally come to a halt, making impossible to receive supplies without having the raw material needed to make my handbags, it’s impossible to service our customers.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Ty Duprie creates the most unique collection of handbags the world has ever seen. These handbags are of quality textiles, exotic leathers and skins, and hand-painted works of art on silk textiles. Their detailed embroidery and architecturally designed hardware complete these incredible pieces of handheld art. What sets Ty Duprie apart from all other handbag designers is the fact that each handbag has been assigned a spiritual affirmation, these affirmations were created to inspire and encourage women through difficult challenges, thus creating a spiritual connection between bag and owner. I’m proud of the fact that I can empower and encourage women in this way.

Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
I would advise any new designer to take Business Management courses. Having a Great design does not automatically guarantee success. Designers fail because they don’t understand the fundamentals of running a business. I also believe that having a successful mentor is extremely important. If I had a mentor at the start of my fashion career, I would’ve definitely reduced some of the mistakes I made.
