The Ultimate Fashion Show for Leather Handbags

Each year the culmination of the International Leather Goods Fair (ILGF) held in Kolkata, India ends with a spectacular fashion show for leather handbags organised by The Indian Leather Products Association (ILPA). The famous Indian models strut their stuff up and down the catwalk to the thumping sounds of pop and rock; think Miss World meets MTV. Throw in a few glasses of bubbly and a generous handful of India’s rich and glamorous and you’ve got one fabulous party!

At the ILGF, more than 50 commercial organisations from India display their latest designs and new leathers to foreign importers from all over the world. Whilst India’s main leather goods export is gloves for the industrial workplace, shoes and fashion handbags also feature prominently. Here you’ll find manufacturers of leather handbags and garments that supply high street shops Top Shop, Monsoon, Accessorize, Zara, Mango, Dune, River Island and Marks & Spencers along with well-known brands such as
Catwalk Collection, Suzy Smith, Radley, Tula and Visconti to name but a few.

And here’s an interesting fact, did you know that Italian Leather Handbags can either be made in Italy using Indian leather or made in India using Italian leather? The final price will give you a clue as to where the handbag was actually made!

So watch for the next influx of gorgeous fashion handbags flooding into The Real Handbag Shop from May onwards
