Korto to singlehandedly save Dillard's with new handbag line

Posted By on Tue, Jun 16, 2009 at 4:02 PM


A Korto creation from 2008.

"Project Runway's" Korto Momolu is teaming with local men's wear and women's accessories label Tre Vero to design a line of handbags, due in 2010 in Dillard's nationally.

Said Momolu: “The Tre Vero partnership is exciting for me since it will enable me to expose even more people to my aesthetic and continue to further with my career.”

Said Jamie Davidson, co-founder and creative director of Tre Vero: “I think this collaboration is very promising.  With her concepts and our experience and marketing resources, we think the bags have the potential to break through, even in a very competitive market.  Plus the opportunity to help such a talented local designer, was just something Tre Vero couldn’t pass up.” 

Said Tim Gunn: "Make it work!"
