About Us.


Patrice Designs known back in the early 80’s as Patrice Leathers was created by local Newcastle designer Patricia. In the 80’s Patricia was know for her beautiful hand made leather Bags and belts, embellished using only Swarovski crystals for that ultimate brilliance. Her designs where sold in some of Australia's biggest fashion houses in Sydney and Melbourne, and were often spotted on a celebrity or two. In the late 80’s Patricia decided to take a break from all things fashion to focus on her family, but her passion for creating beautiful things was always on her mind. After time Patricia decided she wanted to add some new artistry to her already long list of achievements and took a few classed with a local Jeweller, this she thought would help with the re-branding and new launch of Patrice leathers to Patrice Designs that it is today.
At Patrice Designs everything is still all hand made here in Newcastle, from the first steps of creating the design to fashioning and even having it plated all takes place locally. Patricia’s high attention to detail makes sure everything is up to her standards before she hand sets the Swarovski crystals in all designs. We still have some of that 80’s flare in our belt and clutch bag designs but with a new twist, we also have a beautiful collection of Jewellery, accessories and headpieces for all occasions. Creating beautiful one off pieces for brides is something that Patricia also enjoys doing, whether it may be a slight change to one of her designs or a bespoke design that you have in mind for your big day, Patricia is there to work with you to bring your dream piece to life.
