Nicholas D'Aurizio Handbags Available at Bendel's This Weekend

Project Runway Season 8 designer, Nicholas D'Aurizio has designed a fresh new handbag collection that is available this weekend during a trunk show at the New York City Fifth Avenue Henri Bendel store over Memorial Day weekend.

Click here for a new interview with Nicholas.

A highlight:

How did you get the trunk show opportunity at Bendels?

D’Aurizio: There’s an open call twice a year for new designers, one in the fall and one in winter. Basically you bring your accessories, line up at 9 a.m. until the doors open at noon. I went there in the fall last year and they saw my bags and said, “They’re cute, but not quite Bendels. Bring us your next collection.” So I showed them my next one about a month and a half ago, and they loved it. They requested a few different colors and wanted to see black. And now it’s happening! It’s great that they’re giving me four days, especially ones where there are tons of tourists in the city that will probably be stopping by the store.

Modacycle Goes Inside Mood Fabrics

Photo:  Modacycle

Lots about Project Runway has changed since the premiere in 2004.  One constant has been the fabric shopping destination - Mood Fabrics.  

Even when the show moved to Los Angeles, the designers visited the LA store or the "Mood Annex."  

Modacycle recently visited Mood and interviewed store manager, Eric Sauma (above.)

A highlight:  In terms of selection and volume, Mood Fabrics claims to hold about 80% of the fabrics available in the Garment District, and says if they don't have what you're looking for, they are happy to direct you to the other 20% in smaller shops around the neighborhood...The turnover rate of their stock is amazing and you can come in two weeks after your last visit to find literally hundreds of new patterns and textiles.

Click here for the full interview.
