The MIMCO Design Project




Designer:   Halide Osman


When I think of leather bags, I turn to Mimco because of its amazing craftsmanship & quality. When I was sketching ideas for this competition, I was inspired by the classic quilted look of the ‘chesterfield’ as I haven’t been able to find one like it designed in Australia! To my bank accounts (and husbands) dismay, I'm adorned in various Mimco pieces each day. So much so, it’s also rubbed off on my two year old daughter. I’d love to win as I'd be ecstatic to showcase a precious piece created by one of its biggest fans…me!


My redesign for the iconic Mimco Button Bag, will still has plenty of room for all your daily necessities and will be adorned with small Mimco buttons across the body, giving the bag a timeless and unique quilted look.
