Open Call: Stitch Collective's Handbag Design Competition for the Ultimate Evening Clutch

Stitch Collective Handbag Design Competition Ready for the latest design competition? Stitch Collective, the online startup that gives emerging designers the opportunity to have their handbag designs created and sold online has announced their latest open call.

Developed by Town & Country Web Editor Micaela English, the challenge is to design the ultimate evening clutch that is both classic, yet conversational and of course, functional.

"As a Web Editor for a magazine, I am always on the go post-work trying to find out the next big web story. Every week is full of nights out for work, be it a cocktail party or a black tie event.  I am looking for the ultimate evening clutch.  While I love the look of a dainty minaudiere, I can never find one that holds my essentials. I would love an evening clutch that is classic yet a conversation piece.  One I could wear for a night out on the town, or a night out in the country.  A clutch that holds my cellphone, keys, a few credit cards, and a purse sized perfume. Also, one in a vibrant color.  Help!"
