Clemens, who grew up in Queens New York started his label in 2005. The bag made didn’t make its debut until 2014 at a Telfar fashion show at the New Museum in New York. The bag “was a prop for a show concept,” Mr. Clemens said. The bags were displayed as if in a real store but guests could actually buy them and young, downtown New Yorkers did.
