Susannah will be a fantastic mentor to anyone who makes a fashion product and will be able to help advise on how you can turn that into a profitable business. With over 25 years’ experience and having taught handbag design, Susannah knows what works. She's had good mentors herself and knows what has helped her and so wants to give back. She's employed and nurtured over 30 people in their own careers; having a fantastic track-record of where people have gone onto after working with her. Susannah Hunter handbags have a huge following in Japan so she can advise you on global markets. Her shop is one of only a few where everything is still made on site and not outsourced, so you will see her studio and how it all comes together.
I’ve always worked in designing handbags and accessories. I’ve also taught handbag design at Central St Martins.
I own and run Susannah Hunter handbags –a luxury handbag and accessories company known for our signature leather applique. I’m hands on in every aspect of the day to day running of the business.
I love the creative freedom and flexibility of running my own business. I work really hard but can choose my own way. I love creating new seasonal designs and working with customers on bespoke orders
