ElK Designs

It doesn't matter what area of fashion your brand targets there is always one aim - not to be the same as the rest. Now this can prove to be very difficult especially in such a fast changing fashion industry and with the rise of apparel brands but there is one area that seems to open for movement the women's handbag sector of the fashion industry. For starters there are many types of handbags a woman can have but today we are focusing on the clutch back and specifically the clutch bags from fashion brand Elk design.
