Workshop Preparation:


Stephanie Su is the founder and designer of Persu Collection. After struggling to find a highly-functional yet sleek gym bag in 2013, and inspired by her previous experience working at Louis Vuitton, Stephanie created her own innovative gym and travel bags, called Persu Collection and launched them on Kickstarter in 2015.  Stephanie’s first Kickstarter campaign raised over $90,000 in just 43 days. Since then, Stephanie has launched a second Kickstarter campaign for two new bags, The Ama Backpack and Quila Bag, that were successfully funded in 7.5 hours. The Ama Backpack is a sleek and functional backpack for the modern-day hustler and traveler, and the 3-in-1 Quila Bag that can be worn as a stylish belt bag, crossbody, or clutch. Persu Collection bags have been featured in Forbes, SELF, Brit + Co, and Marie Claire. Today, Stephanie continues to run Persu Collection as a solo female founder and is a graduate of the LA fashion tech accelerator GRID110, and a member of the newest cohort of The F Project – a community of female founders.
