Hi, new here! Bag lover, aspiring designer.
I'm new here and kind of here on a whim. I didn't realize there were so many great places online to be able to talk about handbags. Looking forward to reading through all of the discussions. I like in NYC so a good handbag is a MUST. I also work in the tech industry, so I tend to take my laptop with me pretty much everywhere. I say I'm an aspiring designer, because I'm not in love with my laptop bag and I'm trying to bridge that gap.
I've included my design below. The design consists of three basic concepts; the laptop itself is contained in a envelope clutch made of waxed canvas with a magnetic closure. This clutch can be used to protect and carry the laptop to meetings and on the plane. There is a briefcase portion of the bag that holds all of your normal purse items as well as the laptop accessories. This brief can be used on it's own as well as just a purse. The third part of the bag is a harness that holds the clutch and brief together. This harness is configurable in that it can be used in a brief, over-the-shoulder or cross-body configuration, depending on your mood.
I'm looking to know how many of you ladies are in my same position where you need to carry your computer a lot and what do you currently use to do it? Sleeve within a regular bag? Pros and cons? What do you think of my design solution?
I actually entered this into a competition for prize money to get it prototyped, which needs votes to get it made, but I don't want this to sound like a sales pitch and I'm more interested in feedback on the design right now, but if anyone is interested in voting on it to win so that I can prototype it, message me.
I know there isn't a forum on here specifically for this, but feel free to tell me to start a thread on this somewhere else.
Thanks so much and pleasure meeting you all!
