Anabaglish Style Challenge Adds New Twist to Emerging Designers’ Runway Competition at FashioNXT
FashioNXT is excited to announce Anabaglish Handbags as the 2019 UpNXT Emerging Designers Style Challenge sponsor! Following the tradition of Project Runway challenges each of the UpNXT finalists has been challenged to create one of their runway looks that incorporates Anabaglish handbags, and include it in their runway shows.
“Casual, natural, vintage-inspired Anabaglish bags are born in the Pacific Northwest and handcrafted by artisans in India. Made of high-quality leather, suede and cotton canvas, no two bags are alike.” describes Mia Scofield, owner of Lake Oswego based Anabaglish, who will award a prize package to the challenge winner, that includes co-designing a Anabaglish branded handbag.
“Accessories brand collaboration is an important way an apparel designer can expand the reach of their own brands” explains FashioNXT CEO Tito Chowdhury, “What an ideal year to add this exciting challenge when the UpNXT contestant pool is the most talented”.
On Oct 2nd FashioNXT Week features five emerging designers competing to be the next UpNXT winner and get a big prize package that helps their businesses.
