New Projects at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum

London’s Fashion and Textile Museum has announced that it will offer “An Introduction to Handbag Design Course” led by Ann Saunders, who is considered an expert in her field and has worked as Laura Ashley’s accessories Design Coordinator and now runs her own business. Celia Joicey, head of the museum, said of the course, “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.” There are no requirements to participate, as the class is aimed at anyone looking to gain an understanding of the accessories market.

Participants will learn important basic facts about the context for design and the role of the handbag in the fashion industry as well as get an inside look into the design process of researching, developing ideas, choosing materials and planning a collection. They will also have the chance to use their own ideas and inspirations to design their own bags. The course is additionally supported by Newham College and the Chinese-French handbag and accessories company Shanghai Trio, which will provide an example for how to build up an international business by providing case-studies and marketing materials. The course will take place from September 3-7 at the Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, SE1 3XF, London. The program lasts from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm each day and costs £240 per person, which includes entrance to the exhibition.
