Just a few weeks ago, handbag designer Camila Alves launched her collection for QVC, Muxo by Camila Alves. The beautiful Brazilian couldn't wait to discuss the new line, one she hopes will appeal to fans who previously considered Alves' one-of-a-kind leather bags out of reach.

"The handbags we make under the Muxo line are all handmade, one-of-a-kind, so because of that, it gets to a high price point. And we get emails and letters that are like, 'Can I work for you so I can get a handbag? We love the product but we can't afford it,'" Camilla explained.

Luckily, QVC provided the perfect opportunity for Camila to reach out to those fans. "I was so excited and happy," Camila gushed. "I thought, here we go: I can reach the masses with a high-end product."

But don't expect any of the bags in the Muxo by Camila Alves line to look less special than Alves' other bags. "One thing that I really focused on is that a lot of times when high-end designers create something for the masses, somewhere they end up losing the quality of the product. So the products, they can look good but when you touch it, sometimes the leather doesn't feel good. It can look plastic, like those couch covers. So I thought, 'I'm going to do this, but the one thing I'm not letting go is the quality of the leather.'"

"It was a little bit tricky, but we found it. We got a great quality leather, and we tried to create a handbag that looks like it's homemade, but it's not. So you get something that's unique, that looks handmade."

Muxo by Camila Alves is available online now!
