Lulu Guinness Creates The First Moving Handbag

Lulu Guinness wanted to make sure her 20th anniversary as a designer was special, so she established the Lulu Guinness Scholarship to help young designers explore a career of accessory design at the London College of Fashion.

Wright has also worked with Tim Burton and created the famous animatronic catwalks for designer Hussein Chalayan.
