Vicki von Holzhausen doesn’t have the same background as most accessories designers. The Los Angeles native started in automotive design and earned her cred by working with luxury brands such as Mercedes Benz and Audi. Von Holzhausen then took the knowledge she gained from high-end cars and applied it to her very own line of handbags. She pairs materials such as alligator and lambskin with hardware accents. $1,175-$1,250, Bags, Belts & Baubles at Wynn, 770-7000
