Debbie Brooks Handbags is a line of unique and customizable handbags that was founded in 2002. Each bag comes with a (patented) magnetic attachment which allows the customer to change her look with ease. Founder/designer Debbie Brooks and her CEO husband Paul d’Auriac from New York pitched the fashion accessory company on Shark Tank in April 2012. They went into the Tank seeking an investment of $540,000 in exchange for 20 percent equity. Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary thought the evaluation was too high and went out, like all the other Sharks.
While the social media accounts for Debbie Brooks Handbags have been dormant since February 2018, there is a listing of Trunk Shows where fans can buy her bags and accessories in person. New episodes of Shark Tank air Sundays at 9 pm on ABC. [Related: 27 Favorite ‘Shark Tank’ Products at Amazon — New List]
