This is the chosen shape of bag. I am to marry Henry Moore's fabric designs with an accent colour to create a union that showcases mid 20th century design with a contemporary feel. They'll be high spec, with leather handles, dupion silk lining, large vintage button, exclusive Moore fabric and limited to a small number of each design produced.
I'm beginning to gather fabrics and haberdashery together to get a feel for what might work. Virtual fabric shops are very convenient but a trip to a bricks and mortar shop is essential to get the colours just right! (What a good excuse!) I'm considering texture as well as colour so will look at some tweed types and I also have some navy handles on order. I'll reveal the star of the show (Henry Moore fabric) later!
