YOUR INSPIRATION

My inspiration for the bag was to design a timeless, more luxurious look to the original bag. Personally, i prefer smaller, simplistic, structured bag and LOVE the classic black leather and silver look because it is suitable for all ages.

I want to be chosen because it proves to myself that I might have a successful career in the fashion industry and that I should be pursuing my inner passion for fashion designing. The prize is a way for me to give back to my mum. As a student, I do not have the money to splurge on quality handbags.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

My reimagined button bag is a small, black, structured handbag with a pouch in the centre, decorated with silver hardware. The bag has a sturdy, short handle for holding/hanging around your arm, but also has a 120 centimetre strap for a shoulder/crossbody use. Along the sides are zips which can be unzipped to create more spacing and four studs to prolong the bottom. The top of the bag will have a zip to close the bag. The measurements for the bag are 18 centimetres high, 20 centimetres wide but the top will measure 24 centimetres when expanded.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

My version of the bag consists mostly of black, thick, textured-leather accompanied with silver hardware. Other materials include white leather for one side of the shoulder strap and a white leather layer uncovered when the zips are pulled down, and black suede for decoration on the middle pouch. All the zips, accents on the pouch corners, rings, name plate and 1960 button will be silver. There will be small leather straps attached to the zips. The pouch will also have a magnetic enclosure and the handle will be made of black leather.
