Calling All Designers! A Chance To Design Your Very Own Handbag

Isla Rule pride themselves on designing handbags that not only look stylish but are practical and help the busy, rush around women of today organise themselves as much as possible.

They take normal, everyday bags and make them a necessity for women who, very much like myself, always have something to do, somewhere to go or someone to rush around for, and all the while living from the contents of the usually crammed full bag.

Isla Rule add "secret" compartments and sections to their bags.
They may add a colour complementing toiletry bag to one style for example - all in an attempt to help better organise women, helping them to keep all of their "handbag necessities" separate and accessible.

No more pulling out a piece of fruit, hairbrush or lip balm when trying to grab that mobile phone ringing embarrassingly loudly from the deepest corner of their bag.

Organisation is certainly the key.

The lovely Ella Laptop bag illustrates Isla Rule's concept perfectly:

Stylish, practical, sectioned, and with some beautifully coloured lining.

Now, Isla Rule are offering the fantastic designers of the world - ie YOU - the chance to have £500 paid directly into their bank account; have a bag named after them, and have their own creation made and actually sold on the Isla Rule Website.

And what is required?
Simply submit a beautiful, original handbag design of your own into the Isla Rule handbag competition.

Brilliant, right.

The bag designed must show that there is never a need to compromise style for practicality; it must be able to hold a piece of technology, as well as all the other things us ladies can't get through the day without.

Timeless style is a must, as is quality and authenticity. 

But apart from that - the design is open to whatever your imagination can come up with.

Isla Rule are looking for detailed drawings, including images of the lining fabric, colour swatches of the outside fabric and any details of buckles or closing's.

And once the finished, beautiful bag is all designed, simply create an Isla Rule Profile by subscribing to their newsletter and then like them on Facebook.

Upload the design drawings and any image attachments to the Facebook page - and that's it.

The competition is open NOW but closes at 11.59pm on 12th April, 2014.
After this date, professional industry design types will take a look and begin a voting process to choose the very lucky winner.
Tell all of your friends, family, neighbours - everyone you can find because the more "likes" the design has on the Facebook page, the more the judges will be impressed - and the judges really need to be impressed.
By 16th April, the three bags with the most “likes” will be announced as the finalists, and then it is from these lucky three that the winner will be chosen.
AND if you have one, five or even fifty design ideas, submit them all, you can enter as many designs as you like.
The more the merrier - but each one must be unique and all your own work.
Oh - and over 18's only - sorry - but rules are rules.
Make sure you comment below and let me know what fantastic designs you come up with.

Happy Creating!
