Meet the Founder
In today’s Ethical Brand Directory interview I chat to Giovanna Sessi-Knott the designer and founder behind the Morphbag by GSK range. We met at Pure London and instantly connected. I could see that Giovanna was ambitious, compassionate and not wanting to compromise on aesthetics for aesthetics, balanced with an understanding for the need for practicality and versatility.
Thoughts from Sustainable Stylist Roberta Lee
The Morphbag is an excellent choice for the style conscious woman, who is busy, on the go and wants to look coordinated, pulled together and sophisticated. Each bag has been designed to go with a wide variety of looks so you’ll never be in a situation where you have no bag that goes with an outfit. The colours in the GSK range are great for those with warm undertones and fall within the Autumn and Spring colour analysis system.
