Blair grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, and at a young age she developed a strong interest in fashion and trend forecasting. After graduating high school she was unsure what career path to follow; she opted for a more traditional route and studied Psychology. Unable to deny her strong desire to learn more about the fashion industry, Blair spent her summers in New York interning for various designers.

It was during her first internship with a handbag designer that she discovered her real passion. When Blair decided to finally launch her own line of handbags she knew that she wanted to offer designs that were simplistic and easily transitional from day to evening, as well as season to season. It was also important that each handbag be functional and serve a purpose, while beautifully complimenting an outfit.

Above anything else, Blair wanted each of her handbags to be a piece of luxury that would carry on as a timeless piece. Each design is thoughtfully created to make you feel special and unique. The first Blair Ritchey collection will debut this coming Holiday 2011.
