American TV Personality/ Designer, Angela Simmons looked stunning as she rocked our very own Starfish
Ànkárá Super Snap clutch in blue during the recently concluded Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Angela was spotted with the Urbanknit clutch at the front row of the Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 Fashion show at the Stage at Lincoln Centre on September 14, 2011.

Most of you know Angela from her feature (alongside her family) on the MTV reality TV show, “Run’s House” which follows the family life of her father (founding member of hip hop group Run-D.M.C) Rev. Run.

She also went on to star in a spin-off show called “Daddy’s Girls” with her sister Vanessa which follows their life as they start their business, Pastry.

Teal Gold Supersnap Clutch


Thank you to Toyin for your donation! This is the newest addition to the A - Z Initiative idea.

Proceeds from the sale of this bag or any other piece in the same fabric will go towards a relocation, hygiene and educational children's program in Nigeria. More information on that later this month. I met an amazingly inspiring person last weekend and she has such a massive vision to help underpriviledged children living in some of the worst conditions imaginable and Urbanknit would like to lend its support in its own way.

Please click A - Z Initiative for more information about the idea.

Also check out the barometer on the right side of the blog page to see how much we have raised so far.
