The looks on the Paris Fashion Week runways were fabulous, but the stylish stunners attending the shows looked every bit as fab as the catwalk queens.

Welcome back, KAC Fashionistas! Today, we have a very special surprise that will surely leave you feeling inspired and ready to release your inner Girl Boss!

As all of you know, our world revolves around luxurious, beautiful handbags. It’s what we’re all about! And when we find someone equally passionate about magnificently-crafted bags, you better believe we want to talk to them.

When we first came across Kiran Chhabria’s Instagram page (@HowSheSpendsIt), we were completely blown away. Not only does this beauty have incredible style and a genuinely positive outlook—she also has the most amazing luxury handbag collection we have ever laid our eyes on! Stunning styles of Hermes, Chanel, Goyard, Dior—we could swoon over her Instagram feed all day!

We finally reached out to Kiran and expressed how much joy her work brings us, and guess what? She responded, and agreed to answer a few questions for us! We are beyond grateful for Kiran’s kindness, and for her taking the time to chat about handbags with us. Now, let's get to the Q&A!

Q&A with Kiran Chhabria

1. Your handbag collection is truly outstanding! What ignited your passion for luxurious, beautiful handbags? 

"Thank you so much! Some women love jewelry, some art, some are shoe addicts, for me handbags were always the one item that I felt transformed an outfit, were timeless (depending on which you buy) and would always "fit" no matter what my size (fellow yo-yo dieters and size fluctuaters will understand the importance of this one!) As my spending ability grew, I found myself investing more and more in handbags and less in other things and so I guess without realizing it, my collection just grew!"

2. Do you have any tips for someone purchasing their first luxury handbag? 

"If you're an adult investing in your first luxury handbag, my first tip would be to resist the temptation to buy an "it" bag and instead to invest in something that won't look outdated in a season or two. My second tip would be to buy a bag you will actually use. Instead of buying that one special item as a clutch bag or in an impractical colour, get something you will be able to truly enjoy to your hearts content. But of course these are tips, and if someone has their heart set on something, that's what they should go with."

3. What are some of the most rewarding aspects of sharing your love for handbags on your social media platforms? 

"Probably hearing from fellow handbag lovers who admire the pieces as much as I do. I love seeing people unbox their babies or talk about how much joy procuring a new bag gave them, and I think I give the same to them. Many are true handbag aficionados and it's so fun to swap stories and pictures of our purchases."

4. If you were a handbag, what kind would you be, and why would you be that particular handbag? 

"I'd definitely be something limited edition and personalized- my favourite type of pieces ;)"

5. Obviously we share an obsession for handbags! What are some of your other passions and hobbies? 

"I love to read and write. Fun fact: I actually started posting pics of my handbags two years ago to get more followers and promote my debut novel, "Kitty in the City." My instagram however took a life of its own and sadly very few who even follow me know I'm an author."

Pick up your copy of Kiran's debut novel,  Kitty in the City ,  HERE.

6. Are there any handbags on your wishlist right now? 

"I cannot have enough Hermes Kelly Mini 2's so am on a global hunt to get as many colours as I can!"
