For Best Product Design for Fashion, designer Carissa Cruz Evangelista of Beatriz Accessories won for her “Space Collection” of ladies’ evening clutches made of sandblasted and hammered brass dipped either in silver or gold.
You could say designing is in her blood because accessories and bag designer Carissa Cruz- Evangelista is the niece of famous international designer Josie Natori. But Carissa is her own designer, brimming with her own design ideas. Since launching her accessory brand Beatriz, she has created elegantly crafted pieces that have wowed tastemakers. In fact, the gold metal clutch from her latest collection just won last Friday at this year’s Katha Awards during the Manila FAME exhibition.
