Imagine working for one of the most successful beauty companies in the world and imagine choosing to give it all up at the height of the financial crisis. A risky move, one that handbag designer Dareen Hakim says it was all worth it. The Dareen Hakim Collection is only over a year old, and at least half of her debut bags have already appeared on almost every shopping gift guide editorial since last spring.
I recently met Dareen at a charity event and was so inspired, not just by her beautiful and unique clutches (I’m a proud owner of her Le Capri clutch) but also her courage to leave the stability she’s known for almost ten years in the corporate world to pursue her passion for fine Italian leather and authentic Arabian metal. She molded those two things into the one thing we women don’t want to live without… our handbag. (by Nour Akkad from The Huffington Post)
