The journey started in Mexico City, from a childhood in laidback La Jolla, California to an adventure across the pond, eventually settling in London in 1989. Meet Margaret Cabo founder of

How it all started? From as far back as she can remember, Margaret has always had a secret love affair with handbags. However often discouraged by the quality and the outrageous prices they commanded, she set out to create her own collection of divine affordable handbags. The Flo&Sue label is named after two very special women, grandmother Florence and mom Suzanne, ladies who were known for their impeccable style, courage and adoration of handbags! 

Luxe Designers offers a fresh contemporary wave of unique, high-quality handbag pieces featuring great designs at affordable price points, avoiding the traditional markup of x 6.  The labels are created by some of the most exciting independent designers and handcrafted by ultimate Artisans in family-owned workshops. Margaret’s goal is to support Italian Artisans to express their talent and survive in the current globalized world providing them with a platform to showcase their products, giving women the opportunity to wear something spectacular and feel amazing.

At Luxe Designers we believe in slow fashion, small production and creating something special!!
