Brighton Designer - Irina Titarenko

In a class by themselves, Brighton's Masterpiece handbags are coveted for their exquisite beading, opulent layered leathers and intricate stitchwork. Irina Titarenko is the designer behind these bags, and often crafts the first sample by hand herself.

What’s your background?
I studied footwear design in Moscow and after graduating, I made handbag patterns for a company in Russia. I learned the importance of functionality while creating bags for women who would ride the metro, carry a book for reading, and transport their groceries every day.

How did you come to Brighton?
I started at Brighton as a pattern-maker in 2003. After 1 1/2 years, I asked Brighton’s owner if I could be a designer. He said I could design two days and make patterns the other days. I was happy to envision my own designs as well as craft them.

What inspires your designs?
My mom always crocheted and embroidered. I, too, love to plan and craft every element of each intricate 3-dimensional piece I create. Even today, my mom’s artistry inspires my Brighton Masterpiece designs – blending fashion with art.

How do you unwind?
I play with my six-toed cat. He boxes, so I named him Rocky.

In your jewelry box, you love…
A hand-painted necklace inspired by Gustav Klimt’s painting, “The Kiss.” My daughter Julia gave it to me. She lives in Russia, and it makes me feel close to her.
