Born in South Africa, fashion designer Lana Marks specializes in handbags and leather accessories. She currently serves as the chief executive officer and designer for Lana Marks, her high-end fashion line. Handbags come in a variety of styles. These unique and versatile fashion accessories can range from single-handed clutches to over-the-shoulder tote bags. Choosing between handbag styles can be difficult for those who are unfamiliar with the various options. Tote bags are the perfect choice for day-long trips and outdoor picnics. Most totes feature two handles and an open, easily accessible bag. Clutches, on the other hand, are flashier accessories that do not offer much in the way of storage. Generally speaking, they are reserved for classier occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, or similar special events. Other types of women’s handbags that fall in between the style of the clutch and that of the tote include satchels, hobo bags, and cross body bags.
Lana Marks, CEO and designer of Lana Marks handbags and accessories, operates retail outlets on Madison Avenue in New York City and Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Luxury shoppers also can find her sophisticated designs in Europe, China, and the Middle East. One of the best-known actresses working in the Chinese film industry today, Li Bingbing accessorized her stunning outfit at the 84th Annual Academy Awards with a Lana Marks Cleopatra Clutch. The custom-bejeweled purse included 40 carats of hand-paved diamonds. The front flap featured pink gold as well as rare pink diamonds, which were used to inscribe the name Li Bingbing. The purse’s silver-tinted alligator leather was sourced from Louisiana. Li Bingbing is an up-and-coming actress on the United States film scene. She will be appearing in the 2014 movie Transformers: Age of Extinction. Previously, she won the Best Asian Actress award at the 2000 Singapore International Film Festival.
