Your favorite handbag is............?

'You Can't Judge A Handbag By Its Price Tag' says The Fashion and Textile Museum in London, introducing a new course.
Grace Kelly and her Sac à dépêches, better known as The Kelly! 

From a Kelly to a Baguette, no other accessory has the same allure as a handbag.
But a classic handbag design is the sum of many parts.

Next month 'An Introduction to Handbag Design Course' at the Fashion and Textile Museum (3-7 September 2012) offers all enthusiasts a chance to learn the elements of great bag design, as well as an irresistible opportunity to create your own. Led by Ann Saunders, the course is an excellent opportunity to use ideas and experience to design a range of bags for the future. In five days, it covers not only the context for design and the role handbags play in the fashion industry, but also the design process: from the research stage, to sketching out ideas, choosing materials and planning a collection.

Supported by Newham College and Shanghai Trio, the course is aimed at students and professionals alike, as well as anyone wanting to understand the accessories market. Competitively priced, it represents excellent value for money too.

Celia Joicey, Head of Fashion and Textile Museum, says:
'The UK has some fantastic companies whose handbags promote our fashion and design expertise to the rest of the world. With this course, the museum hopes to inspire a new group of accessories designers'.
Melissa Nobile, Business Development Manager (Europe) for Shanghai Trio says: 'The Fashion and Textile Museum offers a unique environment to learn about handbag design, from theory to practice - I was a student a few years ago! Shanghai Trio is delighted to support the museum and to show that whilst expensive 'It' bags remain in-demand, high quality, attention to detail and sustainability remain high on customers' agendas.'

The Fashion and Textile Museum is at 83 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3XF. Exhibition opening times: Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-6pm
