|Designer Tracy Zych signing start/finish line|
“Zych is a designer handbag brand that caters to the auto racing industry. The designer, Tracy Zych, has been designing handbags for many years, with celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Selena Gomez, Hayden Panettiere, and Halle Berry all sporting her styles. The most popular being the “Edie” bag. Zych says, “it has the most history and customers love it.”
“I am extremely passionate about designing handbags but after designing 3-4 collections a year for the fashion industry I hit a wall with my inspiration. In 2010 I pulled out of my New York and Los Angeles showroom and took a hiatus from the fashion industry.” It was this that break that sparked her interest in racing and inspired this new line.
“I ended up going to some NASCAR and IndyCar races and absolutely fell in love. I initially designed the racing inspired bags for myself to carry, but after seeing how passionate and dedicated the race fans are, I was inspired to reinvent my brand and cater to the world of auto racing. I wanted to create chic racing inspired styles that women race fans can carry on race day or out on the town” said the designer.
The Zych Racing Collection is home to six different bags, ranging from clutches, to shoulder bags, to the popular “Edie” bag. They are made with signature grain leather, and are hand crafted as each order is placed. The checkered pattern you see on each bag is hand printed onto leather. Zych explains, “while others are focused on mass producing, I am passionate about designing handbags with exceptional quality that you will cherish carrying season after season to cheer on your favorite race car driver to victory lane.

Of course I have taken a good look at all of the bags, and I couldn’t just pick one favorite. I have 3!
|The Brittany Cross-Body Bag|
The Brittany Cross-Body Bag would be great as it leaves you “hands-free.” This is my favorite style to carry.
