In Autumn 2008 Anna Vahey launched her first range of handmade leather bags under the name ANA FAYE.
After working as a fashion and accessories designer for several years in London, Italy and China, Anna’s passion for handbags and love of Ireland led her back to her native Sligo to start designing and making her own collection.
From there her brand continues to grow and gain new followers.
ANA FAYE is the name Anna was christened with. Somehow, the name was lost after her father’s death when her mother remarried.
But Ana decided to revive her name with the aim of it growing to embody the label’s emphasis on innovation using the finest materials – Italian leather being the preferred medium.
Anna trained as a fashion designer graduating from Limerick School of Art and Design.
In 2004 her unique designs won her the prestigious Persil Designer of the Year Award.
After receiving this accolade and a substantial amount of prize money, Anna invested this in furthering her education at Central Saint Martins – London’s most revered art and design college – where she was awarded a Master’s degree and specialised in Innovative Pattern Cutting.
You can purchase some of Ana’s unique designs online here at Deelite.
