Wednesday March 23rd, 2011 Design Meeting!

We will be having a SPECIAL meeting within our "Designers Story" series this WEDNESDAY March 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in room 311 in Alison Hall.

We will have a special guest Julia Paintsil Designer and Owner of Simply Julia Totes!
Check out her site and the pictures below!

Simply Julia Totes started in the most interesting way. Interior designer Julia Paintsil was sitting in her showroom and saw two pieces of tapestry lying on the floor. “Why not make this into a tote?” she thought. Her creative spirit led her to create a tote that would be perfect to carry everything she needed and would be different from all the other bags she had seen around her.

Julia started using her bag and before she knew it, each of her friends wanted one.

The beauty of the bags was that no two bags looked the same, so her friends could have a bag that no one else had.

Her nineteen year old daughter Ashley Paintsil saw that the bags were an amazing accessory for a woman’s wardrobe and signed on as co-designer and the face of the brand.

Since then the totes have also expanded to hand bags. When you buy a Simply Julia tote or handbag, you’ll be sure no one else will have it.

Julia Paintsil now lives in Newark, Delaware with her husband and three children. Her daughter and co-designer Ashley Paintsil attends the University of Delaware where she is currently studying psychology, entrepreneurship, and fashion.

She will be demonstrating one of her signature designs supplies will be provided from our club.

We will also be discussing our next fundraiser, trip to Washington DC and OUR MAIN EVENT IN MAY!!

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!!
