Rachelle Copeland and Emily Ironi, the brains behind the beautiful Alexis Hudson Handbag collection, bring over 15 years of industry experience to the fresh, young brand industry insiders immediately labeled "one to watch."

Copeland and Ironi spent years learning the business of accessory design and sales, and in 2005 they pooled their talents to launch the collection whose name pays homage to Copeland's five year-old daughter Alexis, and Ironi's "baby" German Wirehaired Pointer Hudson. From the word go, the Alexis Hudson partners had a clear cut vision for their brand and have seen their vision through to reality: creating the "perfect bag" and providing "absolute therapy for handbag addicts."

As the creative force, Copeland designs bags that are the perfect marriage of function and form. Like a classic ballet flat or chic trenchcoat, an Alexis Hudson handbag is destined to stand the test of time thanks to its ability to adapt to and transform the individual style of each woman who carries it. Each luxurious Alexis Hudson bag includes subtle, yet thoughtful, design elements such as hidden magnetic closures, penholders, adjustable straps, key chain clasps, and plenty of room for all the important things a busy girl carries.

Using her vast sales and marketing experience, Ironi successfully launched the Alexis Hudson line, landing it in some of the country's most touted and high profile boutiques in just a single season. Thanks to instant visibility, the Alexis Hudson collection started showing up on the arms of the most fashionable women and chicest celebrities (including Eva Longoria, Katherine Heigl, Heather Graham, Jill Hennessey, Kate Hudson, Keira Knightley, Elisabeth Rohm, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Cindy Crawford to name a few) from coast-to-coast.
