Parsons x Teen Vogue: Bag Mock Up

22/12/2015 § Leave a comment


Continuing as part of the 3rd course on Parsons x Teen Vogue Certificate in Fashion Industry Essentials, “Understanding Fashion Production”, we were required to produce a mockup of a signature bag.

I chose to move forward with a clutch style as my fondest memories have been evenings out that require a little more formality and a clutch is always my accessory. My design is a standard oblong shape, with 1 1/4″ sides that narrow at the top. It has a detachable wristlet and a scalloped flap to keep items secure whilst remaining stylish. I believe this way the bag itself can be easily modified at no extra cost to production.


In total, i’ve used just under an A3 sheet of stock (9″ x 7″ x 1 1/4″) including wrist strap and flap which keeps material costs to a minimum. The flap would securely fasten with a magnetic button, the wristlet will use a swizzle metal lobster style detachable fastener both of which can easily be sourced at any haberdashery stores/sewing shops.

Below i’ve calculated the cost of all materials, hard wear and labour that it would take to produce this bag out of the material I sourced earlier this week:
