I’m just curious. What happened to Kathy van zeeland? I used to be a huge fan of her bags(until they all started to fall apart on me and I stopped buying them). Did she go out of business or something? You don’t see her bags anywhere anymore unless somebody is selling them on eBay or something.

@ShortyLugNut   Lots about Bruce online but not much about Kathy.  She has apparently become a socialite or housewife.  There was a rumor that they'd had a baby.

Ty. Funny how it just mentions Bruce. Nothing about Kathy.

Real estate in California is what I read on here a number of years ago-that was their next career move after handbags.  They probably made a boatload of money.  So, maybe they are just enjoying the good life .

She and her husband sold their handbag empire, which included her brand, his brand and the TIgnanello brand. All three brands carried on for a time under different management, but bore little similarity to the originals. At this point, Tignanello might be the only brand still producing products, but maybe not.

She always seem like a nervous wreck when she was a guest vendor.  I think she hated being on air.
