With the break out success of CC Skye's jewelry line, the designer evolved into handbags, launching the collection in the Spring of 2006 to rave reviews.

CC Skye first began designing clothing and jewelry in the back streets and bustling bazaars of Kathmandu Nepal while on a six month study abroad. While abroad, she lived with a Shaman in the hills of the Himalayas while filming a documentary on Hindu and Buddhist worship. While her wardrobe overseas was well suited for hiking the Himalayas, CC-always a true LA Girl at heart-craved a look off the pages of Vogue while living in her mud hut. After returning to Los Angeles, CC Skye worked in identifying upcoming fashion trends for various trend predictive such as Louis Harris in Paris. She then went on to work in the music and fashion documentaries as an Associate Producer at MTV Networks and profiled the lives of fashion designers for the Style Network of E! Entertainment Television. It was during a hiatus in the television industry that she found herself in the jewelry district of downtown Los Angeles where she began to work with a local craftsmen who taught her the trade, much like the locals in the Himalayas. One summer later, a brand was born.
CC Skye is represented in over 800 stores worldwide. CC lives in Malibu, California.
