Bonitas International, the fashion accessories company that redefined "Workplace Chic" is looking for new designs to add to its 2009 product collection and invites interested designers to submit samples for consideration.

"Our goal is to free women around the world from the fashion disaster that comes from wearing a shoelace style lanyard." says Chief Design Officer Lisa Harrington "our flagship product line, called BooJeeBeads™, is a collection of glass beaded lanyards that redefined WorkPlace Chic by enabling the user to wear her employee ID badge in style. Since that time the line has evolved to include a collection of fashion ID necklaces as well as an upscale boutique line and a broad collection of retractable badge reel jewelry."

Harrington is looking for new designs in lanyards that appeal to the company's target customers of women who wear employee ID badge holders in medical, educational, transportation and corporate workplaces. She encourages established and aspiring designers to participate in the contest. "When we first started our company, we were two moms with a big dream. Today we are the largest supplier of ID jewelry in the world. One of my goals is to encourage creative individuals who have great ideas but would not have considered themselves a "design professional" to participate in the contest and see what doors open for them in the future."

Interested designers may submit original designs in any one of the product collections of fashion lanyards, beaded lanyards, retractable lanyards or retractable badge reels for consideration. Contest submissions must be received by December 31, 2008 for consideration. Winners will earn $150 per selected entry as well as the chance for future design work from the company.

When her sister in law Kimberly Martinez heard the story of this amazing home business at a holiday party she got so excited about the clever product and its' potential that she put together a business plan on the back of a holiday card envelope.

They both left their lives of working for others and never looked back.
