Uma, JL's bags are wonderful...just wish they weren't so expensive! There are some folks who collect her bags. I remember reading several years ago how an actress (Diahnn Carroll) collects JL bags and has a display case in her closet to showcase them.

I am not sure when he started with EL . We met him in 1998 and he had been there awhile but don't know how long. At that time he was only designing the the exclusives.
He was reportedly upset with the Jay Strongwater hiring.
He quit answering our emails about that same time. We were sending him photos at HIS request.
He said he was using them to inspire his workers(PRBS).

Now that the Taj Mahal has been done the door has been opened for other possibilities. Such as the Eiffel Tower, The Colliseum, and the Parthenon.

A pretty blue and white swirl. Totally crystals.

There are many companies already in existance who do bags etc. that are exactly the same inside and out at a fraction of the price. I hope people don't get hung up on the name only.
I think Bob Conte should break away and form his own company, I'd be glad to support him instead of the Estee Lauder Company.
The only one I have ordered this year (so far) is the showgirl and the necklace which I will put on a chain instead of the cord.
Thanks for all the info. everyone, have a nice weekend!

It's sort of like talking about Estee Lauder...we are more talking about the company than the person now.
I just found a bit more information. According to an AP story I just found online, Judith Leiber was alive and well as of October 2002 (at age 81). She reportedly was bored with retirement and is/was "creating coffee-table and dining accessories in silver for department stores under her maiden name of Ditty Peto."

Maybe I was seeing Kathrine Baumann.
It would make more sense if EL was having KB design the new solids since she already does the powder compacts for EL.
The imformation I have was JL was doing the new solids, but maybe the imformation has JL and KB mixed up.
Their work is very alike from what I have seen(not much).
Time will tell.
