From Wall Street Banker to High End Bag Designer

When it comes to getting dressed for work, Joanna Lau, the founder of Jemma Bags knows it’s a tough world out there for women on corporate settings. They need to be professional, somewhat feminine, yet never too sexy, wearing appropriate colors and sporting a bag that can fit a laptop and a million other things, yet still looks fashionable.

As a former Wall Street dweller herself, Joanna always had a hard time finding the perfect bag, which is why she decided to create her own. Thus Jemma Bags was started. A small line of gorgeous bags suited for both the corporate and the more casual environment for the woman who’s always on the run, yet wants to keep her femininity and her charm.

We sat down with her and asked a few questions about her transition from a Wall Street banker to a high end bag designer.
