2 Girls, 8 Looks: A Fall Primer From D.C.'s Most Stylish Designers

We don't mind admitting that we do a happy dance whenever we meet a gorgeous gal who's also clever and creative. Because seriously, how often do you get to meet the human equivalent of a hat trick? In the case of sibling designers Rouzita and Bita Vahhabaghai, that triple threat is doubled.
Rouzita and Bita left their careers in architecture and graphic design, respectively, to launch the ITA Collection, a line of exquisite clutches, handbags, and cuff bracelets. Splitting their time between the District, where they grew up, and New York, where they design the collection, the sisters have already nabbed an Independent Handbag Designer Award and gotten some retail love from the likes of Harvey Nichols, Saks, and Intermix. We got to spend an afternoon with these two raven-haired beauties, discovering their design inspiration and enviable personal style. Click through to meet them — bag-envy ahead!
