NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 17, 2006
Handbag Designer 101, the handbag designer resource, announces their launch of their long-awaited website. This new soon-to-be hotspot on the web is where handbag designers, aficionados and experts unite. At handbagdesigner101.com, you can 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.
Brainchild of Yasmena and Yazzy Bag creator and handbag designer consultant, Emily Blumenthal, Handbag Designer 101 is bridging the gap between designer handbag fan blogs and high-fashion glossy websites. “As a designer, I was always searching for a website where independent designers could be featured for inspiration, find out the latest handbag trends, see where what the latest “it bag” was and also where I could post if I was having bag party or trunk show,” says Blumenthal. “After many years of grass-roots marketing and developing a handbag line from nothing with no design background that made it to QVC, I have had many aspiring designers contact me for advice of my “how to” story. It was clear that I wasn’t the only one who knew that the voice of the independent handbag designer is being passed over for name-brand accessories especially when their biggest following are real bag-maniacs want the bag that no else has. I wanted to give a platform where they can tell their story and plight of giving birth to their lines and humanize their handbags and therefore become a destination purchase.”
Already featured on Handbag Designer 101 is French & French by 2 sister-in-laws, Amey & Shane, whose unique handbags made out of stingray whose production samples survived Hurricane Katrina. Also to come is Fort Cloudy, a handmade line by a 21-year-old named Sarah Maier who sells her line on Etsy.com and London-based Jackie Cawthra’s handbag line called Belen which was born soon after her love affair with Spain began. In addition, HB101 encourages local handbag enthusiasts to participate in letting us know which trends are hot and scout out new talent where they live. This combined with the “Celebrity Bag Watch” and “Bag Events” section with industry expert writers makes Handbag Designer 101 truly the something-for-everyone resource for handbag fanatics everywhere.
Handbag Designer 101, the handbag designer resource, was inspired by the need for the handbag designer, aficionado and critic in all of us. Handbag Designer 101 trademark is owned by handbagdesigner101.com, a privately held company based in New York City.
