Elif Akaydin, an Istanbul native, had entered the fashion
world as a belt designer for Calvin Klein and St. John brands.
Over the years Elif explored every layer of the industry, which helped her experience flourish in a multi-faceted nature. After becoming the leading buyer for Institute, a fashion boutique in Soho (New York), she went on to become the assistant designer for Judy Ross Textiles, and has also collaborated with Domenico Vacca and the Delfino Boutiques as a buyer and designer.
In 2006, Elif decided to pursue her utmost passion for accessories and handbags under her own brand so she created the handbag line “elif NY”, which lead to her launching the hand-crafted handbag brand “Patent of Heart” in 2014.
This collection is for women seeking a bag that is functional as well as unique, and suitable for both corporate and casual wear.
