YOUR INSPIRATION

I wanted to really highlight the buttons and reimagine them, as well as honouring them as they deserve with the "over the top" concept. The colours were chosen from the Canberra winter skyline to suit evenings and highlight the buttons.
I am a foundation MIMCO member which is an honour and being able to buy a bag that I have designed to honour such a wonderful part of the MIMCO history would be a dream come true.
I'm not a professional designer (I work in IT), but I hope you enjoy my design as much as I enjoyed imagining it.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

The "Over the top" bag is the perfect starry night bag, it's big enough to fit essentials, including a light wrap for cooler evenings. Its dimensions are 15cm vertical/tall, 25cm horizontal/wide and 10cm deep at the base, tapering off to a zip close top. It has a front button pocket which is 10cm deep and 20cm horizontal to fit an iPhone and makeup essentials for easy access. The strap is 100cm long, allowing cross body use so dancing isn't impaired and the strap is 1.5cm wide. The bag has standard inside zip pocket and card holders.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

The bag features:
- Navy patent leather
- Classic grey striped lining
- Graphite buttons, two standard size on the front pocket hiding magnetic clips to close front pocket and approximately seventy miniature on the strap to create the "over the top" look
- Navy stitching of bag leather panels and buttons to the bag and strap
- Graphite zip with large zip pull
- Graphite clips pieces for attachment and removal of the strap
- Graphite with flowing style script Mimco hardware badge on the front of the bag
