Your Big Break!
Think You Have What It Takes to Design an Accessory with Attitude?
maurices and Fashion Indie have teamed up to find the next “must have” handbag.
Between January 7, 2008 and February 11, 2008 handbag design entries are being accepted on maurices.com. Your entry can be a hand-drawn sketch, a technical drawing or a photograph of a handbag you designed and constructed yourself. From all the entries, 10 semi-finalists will be chosen by the experts at Fashion Indie and posted on maurices.com. Then, between February 14, 2008 and February 25, 2008, the final three designs will be selected by on-line voters all across America.
The top three designs will then be judged by a panel of fashion industry experts and a winner chosen.
The really exciting news is the winning handbag will be put into production and sold exclusively in September, 2008, in all maurices stores. As an added bonus, the winning designer and a travel companion will also be flown to New York City to be introduced to the fashion world at the maurices media event in May, 2008.
So, all you aspiring fashionistas out there start submitting your designs and show what you got!
