    So I just found out that this contest was by handbagdesigner101

    Here are the winners:

    q: What is your design philosophy?:
    a: I've been creating ever since I can remember and its not until I realized the power of expression that I began to truly understand the why of my being. I embrace change and non-conformity and am very aware that I am here to encourage others to do so as well. I'm a hopeless anachronistic romantic that bows in the presence of esthetic and beauty from past worlds yet I see myself traveling 186,000 miles per second enamored with modern design and future dimensions.The one thing that stands out about my bags is the structured silhouette, which embodies power and beauty, femininity and masculinity, the classic and the modern. Creating a wonderful sense of ambiguity, which most people are afraid yet fascinated by. The audience I target is a strong one, a confident and grounded one who knows what to wear and how to wear it.

    a: The baby alpaca fleece in each PFYH handbag comes from shepherd families in the remote Andes of Peru. PFYH returns a percentage of every sale to the education of these local Peruvian children.

    q: Why did you choose this country to have your bags made and what made you decided to give back?:
    a: I chose to work with Peru because of the Mirasol Project initiative, which funds the building of schools and programs for the children of the shepherd families. Schools where these children can reach their potential (The Mirasol Project - The Mirasol Yarn Collection - High Quality Knitting Yarns)

    q: How have your bags impacted this community?:
    a: PFYH monetary contributions have helped to fund the Mirasol Project. All of the children in this remote, rural community previously stopped going to school due to the long travel distance by foot in harsh weather conditions. Now, with the completion of the first boarding school, these children can attend school on a regular basis. I have seen firsthand the positive impact this project has had on the children of this community.
