"This bag is not the purse of your mother's generation.
In our dynamic world, we need our technology close at hand.
Ahni Gear helps you hold it together as you command your world... while looking like a boss. "
This is the idea behind my leather designs, made with so much hand stitched love.
With the passion and obsession of a workaholic artist, Ahni Radvanyi has dedicated her focus to the Resonating Thread Etsy shop since 2009. The store has grown quickly, and the inventory offered has been ever changing. The designs are led by a philosophy of "Fortune Favors the Prepared... And Evolution Favors the Adaptable" this means that Ahni strives to build clothing that is art that is tools for our life. No really, what does that mean?
Reversible items, detachable and interchangeable hoods and collars, adaptable bags, adjustable sizing, creative storage options in pockets that are hidden and detachable. Storage pockets to fit technology and tools we must carry through daily lives.
Ahni's Etsy shop was discovered in 2014 by the producers of "Styled to Rock", a reality fashion TV show that aired in the fall of 2014 on Bravo Channel. Ahni shared her leather working style on the show, and explored red carpet gowns too. Rihanna Fenty hosted the season, along with Pharrell Williams and supermodel Erin Wasson. Celebrities on the show had designs made including: Kylie Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepson, Nervo, The Band Perry, Khloe Cardashian, Big Sean & Naya Rivera.
After the show, Ahni relocated her Los Angeles based design studio to Bali to produce her leather designs.
A better business model for the fashion manufacturing industry is growing roots in Bali. By creating a women's empowerment program over time to train mothers the leather working craft, women will be able to support themselves, their family, and their community. The larger vision is one that will take time to craft, but it is in process now.
