Bags and Accessories

Judith Leiber began designing evening bags in 1963 and quickly became one of America’s foremost luxury accessories brands.

Judith Leiber is known for miniaudieres, fashion accessories which are also considered to be jewelry. The miniaudieres are crafted from Austrian crystals and meticulously beaded into unique and whimsical shapes. Leiber miniaudieres are done in a variety of shapes sometimes meant to mimic things found in the natural world and some are simple geometric shapes.

Testament to the creativity and beauty of these miniaudieres, they are now featured in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and The Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

Leiber has made bags for numerous first ladies to don during the presidential inauguration. In addition to miniaudieres Judith Leiber has gone on to produce numerous skin bags, belts and other accessories. Judith Leiber has risen the shiny, whimsical evening bag to the level of art object
