Specialising in handmade leather handbags, LaLaQueen have launched their online boutique in conjunction with their new collection. Designed by Sally Sarieddine, each piece is limited and unique and finished off with sprinkles of fairy dust, which is the secret recipe to its success.
Catering to those who treat themselves with royalty, these bags are designed for women with rich souls and magical hearts.

In future, how do you plan on expanding the company?
When the company first started we were the first online boutique for bags in the middle east, collaborating with the artist Hatty Pedder to design our website and to do illustrations that we printed on some leather handbags and clutches. We then opened a showroom in Hamra, and did the opening in Beirut Design Week in 2013. After participating in Fashion Forward in Dubai and selling out all our pieces at the event we got an invitation to do a fashion presentation in London Fashion Week in 2014. We just came back from London, we were showcasing our latest collection in Pure and we worked with a creative photographers Aleksandra Kingo and Ezzedine Alwan to do a photo shoot that we will be revealing in the next 2 weeks. Since the beginning of LalaQueen, Narimane Kurdi Managing Director of NK Luxury Consultancy has been mentoring LalaQueen. She helped to have a better understanding on how the industry works, This year’s focus with her will be to work on refining the business and strengthening the marketing and operation structure
