The bags charms and trinkets have become one of the most trending accessory for almost four consecutive seasons in the room. As small as it is, it will just turn old bag to a new one, and can spice up and put some edge on a plain or classic bag. It just a chic effortless item you add to your bag, wallet, backpack or even suitcase, that will dramatically transform it.
A lot of designer houses have created their own charms, but to be honest to have a one designer dedicated to creating such a lovely trinket was rare to find. Fadia Dekmak is a Lebanese designers who successfully engraved her name deep in the fashion scene, by creating her own doll charms. Her dolls are so unique with their mad hair and super glamorous outfits, that she can also customize and make them mimic your own personality. You can check www.Tchi-Tchi.com
