I instantly fell in love with mine and wore it everyday for a week. Then, it hit me … I could have a “designer” tote too, if I were willing to embellish it myself. So off I went to my favorite trimmings store, M+J Trimming, to get inspiration.
DIY Project: “Designer” CFDA & eBay “You Can’t Fake Fashion” Bag
Last week, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and eBay released their “You Can’t Fake Fashion” summer tote. The limited-edition totes were part of an initiative to raise awareness about counterfeit fashion goods and celebrate the original work of America’s designers. The CFDA and eBay commissioned 50 designers to put their signature stamp on one canvas bag, but also offered the original “You Can’t Fake Fashion” totes for sale.
