You Be The Designer, New ALDO Contest: BAGTRENDS

Dear Bagistas,

Have you ever seen a great handbag and thought, "Oh, if it only it had a longer shoulder strap and an outer pocket with a zipper, it would be perfect"? If so, this ALDO contest is for you.

ALDO invites you to personalize a pair of their shoes, boots or a bag with studs, straps, accessories, or any other creative element. Post a picture of your creation online at where a panel of judges from both ALDO and TEEN VOGUE (the co-sponsor) will choose 10 Finalists. The public will then chose a winner who will get to collaborate with the designers at ALDO to create a shoe or bag for the Fall/Winter 2010 collection. To make it even more bag-a-licious and shoegasmic, the winners item will be promoted in Teen Vogue's Spring 2010 issue.

OK, now to the fine print: submissions close ct 16 and the finalists are chosen Oct 20. The contest is open to all legal residents of Canada , the 48 contiguous United States, Alaska , Hawaii , the District of Columbia and the United Kingdom who have reached the age of majority in the territory in which they reside. Visit for all the details.

So, remind me again, why are you still online when you should be cutting, crafting and creating magic?

PS Feel free to share you designs and progress with me! I'd love to see what you come up with.
Have a bag-a-licious day!
Pamela Pekerman
