Collins of Texas is privately owned by the Parstabar family.
In 1992, while working at Harry Winston Golbarg Parstabar (Goli) acquired this dormant beauty with the idea that once she leaves Harry Winston, she can devote herself to reorganizing and updating the company to match and exceed its glorious past. With a little detour from Harry Winston in Beverly Hills, were she started her career in 1986, Goli was assigned to develop Harry Winston’s business in Japan and the Asian Region including Hong Kong and Taiwan. She went on to opening new markets in the Western United States and Hawaii and oversaw the development of Harry Winston retail in California and Dallas, Texas.
Early in 2012, Goli finally made the move to take charge of her beloved project in order to put The Original Collins Of Texas back on track. The first attempt included making alliances with the fine leather capital of the world, Italy, to bring both style and technique injections to Collins products and to rise to the contemporary level of today’s market and standards.
The current product line is the result of her tasteful endeavor. While new products are under development, efforts continue to be made to re-establish the Original Collins of Texas manufacturing facilities to develop domestic product lines ranging from contemporary handbags to updated styles of Collins Vintage and Jewel Bags. Currently, the Collins Classics continue to be made in the birth place of Collins of Texas in limited production or limited edition.
Standing on an iconic past Collins of Texas endeavors to provide practical, casual as well as formal fashion and lifestyle solutions by creating and offering varied product lines.
