Just in time with Fashion Week taking place from NY to Paris to Milan, the 2012 Elle Style Awards was held in London at the famed Savoy Hotel. The Savoy Hotel has been mentioned in many a song as a place of refinement and elegance and was the appropriate setting for the 15th annual award show.

This event is considered the barometer of who is "hot" on the fashion scene.  Awards are given out to the “best” in several categories. Alexa Chung hosted the Elle event, which is similar to the People´s Choice awards, whereas the winners are chosen by the fans.

One designer peered above many contestants, and that was Sarah Burton. She may not be a household name in the states as of yet, but she dis the designer behind Kate Middleton's stunning wedding dress for the Royal Wedding in April 2011.  Burton instantly rose to superstardom as a fashion designer.

Sarah Burton was given the "International Designer of the Year" award, in which was well deserved, as many in the industry believe her designs are the most copied by the ready to wear manufacturers. This in itself is a major form of flattery.

The authentic Bottega Veneta Black Nappa Intrecciato Large Hobo is a winner as the premier luxury label contender year after year. The biggest appeal to owning an authentic Bottega Veneta is the craftsmanship that it is painstakingly handcrafted.

This all-around used slouchy hobo is the one that typifies the superiority behind a Bottega Veneta bag.  The soft and supple black basket weave leather will amaze even the most seasoned handbag fashionistas. Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Renee Zellweger are just a few celebs that adore their BV handbags.

The interlacing vertically and intermingling hand woven weave is the main theme running through the entire body of the bag. The single strap merges to the frame in smooth leather that has a twist partially upwards made for comfort. Carry it hand or place it over the shoulder.

There is a top zip allowing all inside belongings to remain safe and secured. As to what is to be expected with a pre-owned hobo by Bottega Veneta is never a lack of space inside.

The lining of this pre-owned hobo is in tan suede fabric. Besides space, there is a zippered pocket trimmed in leather and an open cell phone holder.

The authentic Bottega Veneta Black Nappa Intrecciato Large Hobo is both eye-catching and dazzling and owning one is pure style and quality.
