NEW YORK, NY (APRIL 2012): Candy Washington, Georgetown grad turned actress, is now the face of NKHenry Handbags and Accessories. She is a young, on-the-go actress, effortlessly running from audition, to set, and everywhere in-between; Candy was just considered for J.J. Abrams TV pilot, Shelter, and Gbenga Akinnagbe's (The Wire, The Good Wife, Nurse Jackie) independent feature film, Newlyweeds. So naturally, designer Nikki Henry, felt that Candy embodied the fun, flirty yet determined, spirit of the quintessential NKHenry girl.

"I've been a fan of Nikki's designs for years, so I was honored to be a part of her latest collection. I love her oversized bags to stash my scripts, shades, lip balm, make up bag, and everything else I need while running around the city. Her clutches are the best for my down days when I all need are the essentials," Candy says of being the face of the new line.

Candy's favorite piece from the collection is the Chloe clutch that comes in Spring Green, Bright Fuchsia, and Blue, with a thick brown leather strip in the front with gold studs. "I'm a self-taught designer, so all of my looks are truly reflective of my unique design aesthetic. Partnering with Candy to make this collection come to life was an amazing experience," explains designer, Nikki Henry.

Up next for Candy is modeling for New York-based emerging jewelry designer, Baxtor Price Designs, and doing an on-camera interview with fashion, lifestyle, and beauty expert, Lilliana Vazquez. NKHenry's Spring collection is now available on its newly revitalized site, start shopping here: www.nkhenry.com.
