An outfit is never complete without the right bag. Finding the quintessential everyday carrier can be quite the challenge; it has to be the right size in order to house all of your essentials, but it also needs to have enough flair to perfectly punctuate your look. Here to conclude your search is A-Z, an online shop that can craft the most stylish personalized bags you'll be toting on the daily.
What is A-Z?
Just like the 26 letters of the alphabet, A-Z aims to to represent inclusivity and diversity, as stated by its founder and designer Angelica Alvarez. She tells Preview that, "Since A-Z is all about expressing oneself and promoting individuality, we have always offered customizable designs wherein the pattern remains the same but we’ve given them the freedom to choose from the materials we use. This is the very essence of our brand, and it makes us happy to execute the ideas of our customers."
How did A-Z start?
It was only four years ago when Angelica launched the brand via her graduation show at the College of Saint Benilde. Since then, she's had a personal mission to "create pieces that signify gender fluidity and inclusivity."
Armed with this philosophy, A-Z caters to the needs and wants of its customers. If any of their ready-made bags don't feel like the right one for you, they're more than willing to personalize one for you. "We’ve created a system wherein the customer is a part of the design process and create pieces that are both functional and unique. We want our products to make a statement and [that] statement was created by you," Angelica says.

But wait, there's more! Another essential one can't possibly forego when heading out, especially in these COVID-ridden times, is a facemask. While the surgical kinds get the job done, A-Z can also provide you with unique masks that'll add another layer of interest to your looks.
