Judith Leiber Handbags
 

After working as a handbag designer for other companies, Leiber founded her own business in 1963. Sold at exclusive boutiques around the world, her handbags cost several thousand dollars and have become a status symbol for many women including several Presidential First Ladies.[citation needed] Leiber is most famous for her minaudieres, which are often covered in crystals. Animals are a recurring theme, and often the most expensive purses of the collection with prices on some animal shaped minaudieres exceeding $5000.

A Judith Leiber cupcake minaudiere was featured in the Sex and the City movie.

The Judith Leiber boutiques are exclusive as there are only four in the United States, located in Las Vegas (2 locations), Orange County, and New York City. A fifth location was located in Atlanta, but closed in 2008 due to leasing issues. The first free-standing boutique in Asia is located in Jakarta, Indonesia at the luxurious Plaza Indonesia shopping mall.

A biography of Leiber and her husband, modernist artist Gergson Leiber, was published in 2010. Entitled No Mere Bagatelles, it was written by Jeffrey Sussman.
