First annual Independent Handbag Designer Awards

May '07
The Fashion Center BID is proud to announce that it has signed on as a sponsor of Handbag Designer 101's first annual Independent Handbag Designer Awards. For more than a decade the Fashion Center has created and supported new and emerging talent in the fashion industry – making this event a natural fit.

Designers of the most stylish and trendy handbags will be squaring off against one another with 6 awards to be given for Handbag Design Excellence, on June 20th at the world-renowned Museum of the City of New York. The Handbag Designer Awards provides an opportunity for budding designers to break into the notoriously exclusive fashion and accessory business.

The pressure is on and creativity takes over as the contenders design competing handbags. Designers will vie for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show their work among their peers in New York City, the fashion capital of the world Handbag Designer 101 – the handbag designer resource, is a hotspot website where handbag designers, aficionados and experts unite to find undiscovered handbags by independent designers; learn about the latest handbag trends; see the handbags that celebrities are wearing today and find out about the latest handbag shopping events.

The brainchild of Yasmena and Yazzy Bag creator and handbag designer consultant, Emily Blumenthal, Handbag Designer 101 bridges the gap between designer handbag fan blogs and high-fashion websites.

“This handbag competition will give a unique platform to talented and undiscovered designers so they can receive the validation and accolades that is long overdue for being an independent handbag designer and become the latest 'it' bag," says Blumenthal. “We encourage aspiring designers to apply and have the opportunity to achieve name and product recognition in New York City.”
