Cara Landy At Showroom Sababa

Cara has a well-rounded background in the fashion industry. During college, she interned in the design department at Gloria Vanderbilt, a ready-to-wear line. While working to establish her own company, she worked as the assistant to Meredith Burns, a high-end evening wear designer.

Cara Landy started designing and creating handbags at the age of 14. During high school, a friend suggested that she show them to a boutique in their hometown of West Hartford, Connecticut. The owner of the boutique loved the bags and was impressed with Cara’s level of creativity and sewing skills at such a young age. Without second thought she decided to take on Cara’s first collection and sell them in her store. Almost ten years later, Cara still sees people walking on the streets carrying the bags she made in that first collection.Throughout high school and college, Cara continued to make each bag by hand. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island with an undergraduate degree in Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design, she turned all production over to a prestigious factory in New York City. Today, each bag is carefully constructed of materials from the U.S. and Italy. Currently, Cara is based in New York City. She is located just a few blocks from the heart of Manhattan’s garment district.Currently, Cara is based in New York City.
