LONDON, April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Renowned American exotic leather handbag designer to A-List Hollywood, society, and royalty, Lana J. Marks, has designed two handbags for Prince Harry's girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, which will be worn by Davy at the British Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011 — at the ceremony at Westminster Cathedral and at the evening party that night.
These sophisticated, yet versatile handbags set a new standard for understated elegance, timeless design and fashionable practicality. For the ceremony, Davy will be wearing the LANA MARKS Safari Clutch in desert shaded alligator. For the evening event, Davy will be carrying the LANA MARKS Cleopatra Clutch, an iconic handbag made famous by its countless appearances on the Academy Awards Red Carpet.
Lana J. Marks was also a close friend of Diana, Princess of Wales. After being introduced to the princess by Lucia Flecha de Lima, Marks was commissioned to design a handbag for Princess Diana – a task that eventually led to Marks becoming one of the Princess's closest American friends.
The first LANA MARKS Princess Diana handbag created for Princess Diana was in royal indigo alligator. Shortly thereafter, de Lima called Marks from London to say that the Princess had worn the handbag to lunch, the first stamp of approval. The Princess then wrote Marks a note, thanking her for the most beautiful handbag imaginable. This soon led to a close friendship between the two.
