Design A Bag Competition 2024

Design-A-Bag Competition 2024 Theme: GENDERLESS

From casual Unisex to extravagant today’s life: “to appear today is to exist in the eyes of the others .”

In Fashion World, we have seen the rising trend for genderless designs, allowing consumers to dress outside of one’s gender. Popularly labeled as androgynous fashion, it is veering away from traditional gender labels. over the last few decades we’ve seen women taking inspiration from men’s fashion. Today, menswear is increasingly influenced by women’s fashion, particularly the bags that are used both by men, women etc.

With gender-neutral or gender-inclusive designs in mind, DAB 2024 challenges designers to create the ultimate genderless bag, with leather as its main material. It will be a bag whose form and function will appeal to any and every gender.

Submission deadline: 12 January 2024
