Today we meet Erin, the founder of US-based handbag brand Gunner’s Daughter.
Following the 2009 economic decline in the US, sales of luxury handbags have since been rising and are forecast to grow by up to 6% annually in terms of volume and revenue to 2019: Erin is taking advantage of this growth by cracking into the industry with her high-end, maritime inspired handbags. Furthermore, unlike her larger competitors such as Coach (which holds the largest market share in the US handbag industry), Gucci and Michael Kors, Gunner’s Daughter prides itself upon its US-produced components.
Read on to find out more about Erin’s start-up story.
We are so excited to see you at the Gunner's Daughter Launch this Sunday, May 24.
Just a few things we want you to know about the launch:
1) Parking will be by valet parking at the residence.
Plug the address into your navigator and look for some kind of marker out front (balloon, flowers, sign).
2) At this event, The Gunner's Daughter® team will be taking "Pre-Orders" for bags. What this means is that they will be made-to-order once you make a purchase on Sunday. The finished bags will be shipped to you once they are complete, and you will be informed about their progress every step of the way. Remember, this is the very first run of bags so they are quite special and we can't wait to get them to you.
Details and information about the product will be available at the event as well.
3) Champagne toasting will occur!
See you there!
