Bag Snob Tina (wearing Zac Posen) with Zac Posen
Hi everyone. I am still in New York in midst of a flurry of fashion shows and parties. I promise I will have a ton of photos and reviews of the shows plus a video interview with Zac Posen up shortly! Zac’s latest venture, the limited edition (only 750 made!) tote bag sponsored by DHL was launched at Bryant Park Grill last Thursday where I had a chance to hang out with Zac and preview the bag. DHL paid for the entire production (yup, all 750 bags) so that every penny made from the sale of the bags ($300,000!) will benefit Zac’s favorite charity, Teachers Count. Now where would we all be without our amazing teachers? I know where I wouldn’t be, I wouldn’t be the Founder and Editor of one of the top Fashion Blogs in the world with a stack of Fashion Week invitations in my bag. So show your teachers some love and purchase a bag today. The bag is $400 (a small price to pay considering all that our teachers do for us!) with free shipping from DHL. I had a chance to see it in person at the launch party and I love it! It is super chic to use both as school bag or your everyday run around town errand bag. The Italian leather bag is a stylish balance of playful color and functionality with a sturdy strap, I have mine filled with fashion week notes and schedules to keep me organized throughout the week. As an added bonus, DHL is giving one away FREE everyday inside the Tents at Bryant Park during the Spring 2008 Fashion Week! So if you are in New York and was able to score an invitation to one of the shows, you must stop by the DHL booth and sign up to win! Why am I so passionate about this cause you ask? Because I care about the future of our children (including my adorable two year old) and their future is in the hands of our TEACHERS! So what are you waiting for? Grab yours today before all 750 are snatched up by Bag Snob readers!
