How I'm Making It: Reece Solomon of Reece Hudson Handbags

As one half of design duo Reece Hudson (the other being her partner Max Stein), Reece Solomon knows how to get things done--and done well. Since graduating from Parsons just three years ago, Reece has turned her line of expertly crafted leather handbags into one to watch. And the industry has taken notice in a major way. Last summer, the CFDA chose Reece Hudson as one of latest recipients to occupy its Fashion Incubator Studios in NYC garment district, along with receiving free business consultations from NYU. We've been dying to know what's happening for Reece now that she's settling into life as a CFDA incubatee--as well as what's next for Reece Hudson-- so we grilled her on how she’s “making it” in fashion today. What was the inspiration behind starting your own brand? Since I was little I have always wanted to have my own brand, and I knew that it was something I wanted to start at a young age, not later in my career. Also, when I graduated Parsons in 2009, the economy was terrible and thus the job market. So I kind of felt that if I couldn’t find the job I wanted I might as well try to create it for myself.
