Carrie Dunham launched her line of classic, preppy laptop bags and cases with great response at the International Gift Show in New York back in January. She will add new styles and products including kindle and iPod cases in an array of suede and leather in bright, classic color combinations as well as a new line of nylon and leather netbook and laptop bags at this August’s show. Her designs offer a unique and fashion forward alternative to the traditional black electronic carrying cases for the growing force of working women as well as students and women on the go. She will soon have cases for men as well.
The idea came to designer, Carrie Hubbell, while attending Cornell University’s Johnson School of Management for her MBA. She could not find a functional bag to carry her laptop around campus and kept damaging her computer carrying it unprotected in tote bags. From there she recognized the need for a functional, yet fashionable case. Having a love of classic fashion and a great sense of style, she realized she could translate her love of fashion and beautiful things to something practical for women everywhere.
She left the world of banking and finance in 2008 and began selling online in December 2008 and officially launched publicly in January 2009. The response has been positive from both retailers and consumers. One online customer, upon receiving her bag said, “ I swear, that bag is exactly what I've been looking for. There are just no cute laptop bags on the market, and hers are perfect! I love all of the details. She's really filling a need. She should consider this community service! “
Not only are the bags good looking but they are also highly functional with thoughtful, unique design elements like pleated battery compartments, comfortable handle lengths, hidden zippers for port access and flaps to protect the screen from the keyboard. There is even a reversible laptop bag-two bags in one! She has also done personalization, including bags for the U.S. Senate, and has added monogramming options as well.
She will continue to expand the product line and will be strategically growing the business, focusing on specialty retailers, boutiques and bookstores going forward.
