LONDON, April 28, 2011 - Renowned American exotic leather handbag designer to A-List Hollywood,
society, and royalty, Lana J. Marks, has designed two handbags for Prince
girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, which will be worn by Davy at the British
Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011 - at the
ceremony at Westminster Cathedral and at the evening party that night.

These sophisticated, yet versatile handbags set a new standard for
understated elegance, timeless design and fashionable practicality. For the
ceremony, Davy will be wearing the LANA MARKS Safari Clutch in desert shaded
alligator. For the evening event, Davy will be carrying the LANA MARKS
Cleopatra Clutch, an iconic handbag made famous by its countless appearances
on the Academy Awards Red Carpet.

Lana J. Marks was also a close friend of Diana, Princess of Wales. After
being introduced to the princess by Lucia Flecha de Lima, Marks was
commissioned to design a handbag for Princess Diana - a task that eventually
led to Marks becoming one of the Princess's closest American friends.

The first LANA MARKS Princess Diana handbag created for Princess Diana
was in royal indigo alligator. Shortly thereafter, de Lima called Marks from
London to say that the Princess had worn the handbag to lunch, the first
stamp of approval. The Princess then wrote Marks a note, thanking her for the
most beautiful handbag imaginable. This soon led to a close friendship
between the two.

Setting a new standard for luxury accessories, Lana J. Marks is the CEO
and sole designer of the LANA MARKS Brand. Marks has distinguished herself as
one of the most talented accessories designers to both Hollywood and royalty.
Angelina Jolie, Julie Christie, Helen Mirren, Drew Barrymore, Chloe Sevigny,
Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet, Charlize Theron, Lucy Liu, Oprah Winfrey,
Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, and Diana, Princess of Wales, have been
just a few of her well-known customers.
