Happy Birthday, KODA NIVOLI!

I have some pretty talented friends. Like, out-of-this-world creative, whizzy, entrepreneurial friends. Why am I telling you this? Because I believe in supporting others and when someone you know is doing something pretty cool, you tell other people. 

I first met Ksenija Dias at a local networking event where she introduced me to her fashion handbag and accessories line, KODA NIVOLI. Fast forward to a year later and coincidentally, our daughters happen to be in the same class at school and dear little friends. Funny how that happens, huh? Also a year later and KODA NIVOLI is celebrating their first birthday. 

And they're doing so in a big way.


Founded by Ksenija, the name KODA NIVOLI was formed by combining letters from Ksenija's and her daughters Olivia and Anivia's names. Her designs are bright and bold, fashion forward and unique. And best of all, the handbags are made with luxurious leather from Italy and Spain, which is also ethically sourced.  When I first learned of the brand, I thought she carried and sold purses -- I didn't know she was the DESIGNER! Ksenija designs the bags in her collection, with an undoubtedly talented team, too. 

While the company is celebrating its first birthday, Ksenija admits wanting to start her business almost two decades ago, but never did. In that time, her focus to create a kids' and small purse collection has morphed into the luxury ladies handbag line it is today. 
My favourites in the collection? The Annie Clutch, of course. It comes in a bunch of different colours, has a unique shape, and with a price point of $149, it's not too bad on the wallet, either. I love the coral leather. Or the grey suede. 


And the Steffi. This handbag is not only beautiful in soft blush pink leather, but a portion of every sale will go to the Canadian Cancer Society. Don't fall instantly in love, though; the Steffi needs a few weeks to order. Perfect for the summer!


Recently, KODA NIVOLI has been featured at Toronto Fashion Week and on some fancy red carpets in the arms of celebs. Not too shabby. And I wish them, and my friend Ksenija, nothing but the best as this line grows and grows.
