Patrick Shannon, is a line of luxury evening clutches and handbags created by Los Angeles based designer Shannon Gogerchin. The collection balances style with sophistication, while emphasizing the use of quality materials.
Originally from Chicago, Shannon has lived in both New York City and Los Angeles and has lent her design talents to top fashion houses such as Coach, Betsey Johnson and BCBG Max Azria Group. The experience of living in such dynamic cities – which are known for being cultural and social melting pots – has invariably left a mark on Shannon and ultimately shaped her vision as a designer. Like the cities she’s lived in, the collection blends cool with sophisticated, edgy with delicate, and bohemian with Rock and Roll. The spirit of each city is palpable. It is this spirit which flows seamlessly through the Patrick Shannon collection.
After graduating from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and spending several years designing for other fashion brands, Shannon noticed a void in the market for luxury evening bags, that are moderately priced. The Patrick Shannon collection aims to fill this gap by reflecting her personal design philosophy, to marry high quality and accessibility. Shannon has applied this visionary approach in every step of defining and developing the brand, by using the highest quality materials and hardware components that are all crafted by hand.
Drawing from her passion for vintage clothing and jewelry, and musical taste that ranges from Punk to Folk, Shannon has managed to blend the west coast bohemian spirit with New York City’s edge. The Patrick Shannon collection seamlessly crosses boundaries, and embodies the spirit of a woman who is complex – at once sophisticated and charming, yet tough as nails.
