I'm a finalist in the Independent Handbag Designer Awards in New York!
I'm so excited - I have been selected as a finalist in the Independent Handbag designer Awards in New York City in June. I'll be jetting out there on the 15th for the ceremony evening. I got the call shortly after the entry deadline, but had to keep it to myself for two weeks - can you imagine how hard that was? Now I'm out and about and trying to spread the word as much as I can. There is a voting page on InStyle.com - where a fan favourite will be chosen to feature in the glossy pages of InStyle magazine, I would absolutely love that to be me, of course. Voting can be done here - you just need to click on the image of my bag (in the Stand Out and Look Great Work Bag category), one a percentage pops up, your vote is counted - easy peasy and takes less than 30 seconds. I have my own profile page on the Handbag Awards website and have made this video to support my entry too; I'm currently in second place in my category with 30% votes, and so thankful for all the support - any ideas to help me get extra votes are most welcome! Just drop me an email Jen@JenniferHamley.com So for the rest for the week I'm trying to get my story out to the press - wish me luck! Stay wonderful, Jen xx
