The Get in your Bag Ladies Edition

The compliment to every lady is the bag she carries and whats inside it of course. Rochester New York is filled with amazing talent. In this season I want to acknowledge those who stand out. Between 2019 – 2020, Raquel Denise Handbags appeared in the Democrat and Chronicle, the daily newspaper that serves the Greater Rochester area, 3-times showcasing her brand.

Raquel Denise; born in Rochester, NY, graduated from Joseph C. Wilson Magnet High School. She furthered her education and obtained an Associate Degree in Business Administration. She then went on to get her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management and Economics, with a concentration in Operations. After that she completed her Masters in Management, with a specialty in Leadership.

During her last semester of Graduate School, she began fostering the Entrepreneurship seed that had been in her since childhood. After deciding her business would be in luxury agendas and planners, Raquel shared her new endeavor with her best friend and eldest sister. It was during that “tough love” conversation, her mindset was shifted, and Raquel Denise Handbag Boutique was birthed.

In June 2018, she launched Raquel Denise Handbag Boutique (RDH). RDH’s mission is to provide affordable handbags that are not only essential, but luxury for the everyday woman. RDH understands, every woman’s handbag carries a story of “who she is” and RDH wants to be a part of your story. 

In 2022, Raquel Denise set her sights on brand recognition, developing her first signature handbag. The RD “I AM THE BAG” Handbag Tote TM which is the ultimate luxury statement bag! It’s for the woman, who’s making moves and not only showing up, but showing out while in her BAG! The RD “I AM THE BAG” Handbag Tote TM  has been receiving rave reviews locally and across the USA, from  women in “their BAG”. With the launch of her signature handbag, Raquel Denise is only getting started with expanding her luxury brand.


I have watched her, as she markets her products with very high class and grace. Which is why she has been chosen for this specific article feature. Hard work does not go unnoticed. It’s the Holiday Season which is every reason to purchase your bag or gift someone else. Her handbags can be found on these multiple sites listed below.
