Mia's got a Brand New Bag...part 1

I've been doing bags for a few years now, but it's a pretty new discipline for me. It's started out as a yearly birthday project for myself. I figured a bag was something I could start for myself, and actually finish...I wanted to wear something of my own for a change!

This is the First Bag:

But, it's been evolving, since starting with this straight forward and fairly un-constructed (and unlined) messenger style, which is my all-time favorite style. I've been asked to create some much more constructed bags, a real challenge, especially on a one-of-a-kind basis.

Here is the first bag I recently made for a new client, I call it the "Mia" bag. I got beautifully detailed sketches from the client:


client-sketch-1
client-sketch-2
But, more importantly I got a very detailed and specific list of functionality specs. This is what the final design really took shape from. I created a mock up based on the required dimensions, which was then sent back to the client to try. Turns out the bag needed sizing up to accommodate her computer, peripherals and a change of clothing so that this would be the perfect all around carry-on bag.

This is the final result:


mia-1
mia-1-2
mia-1-3
mia-1-4

She loved this bag so much she ordered a second one, which I will get to shortly...

Google ghosts in the Machine?

I suspect the big "G" is screwing' with us, because after months and months of searches coming through with images, (very quickly btw) it suddenly all drops dead. Sorry, I disagree with big G, 'cause I got content that they need, G images & cool iris are worthless when there's nothing ORIGINAL to look at. It seriously demeans the whole experience. Might as well go to the local strip mall.

Can We Save the Garment Center?

I cannot find a direct link to this story so here is what I found. (I think its completely irresponsible for WWD to have this as a "locked" article - which is what it appears to be and not even mentioned in it's headline e-mail headlines. I am not a current subscriber because I don't feel WWD has ever done enough to promote or encourage smaller designers or local designers/manufacturers. Or any of domestic end of the industry for that matter. NYC cannot afford to put all it's eggs in the totally screwed financial markets, we must produce something to remain a viable economy- that goes for the US as a whole...This is such an important issue that affects us on so many different levels...Thank you for posting it "SuperBeautiful"
