Signature Clothing has become one of several retail stores across the country to participate in the Holy Hanna Handbag design competition.

Any budding designers in the Golden area are invited to put their creativity to the test, and design their ideal handbag.

“I know there are a lot of creative people out there who would love the opportunity to have their product  made,” said Kelly MacDonald, owner of Holy Hanna.

Entry forms with contest rules can be picked up at Signature in downtown Golden. Participants will have until Nov. 15 to submit their design, and the winner will be announced on Dec. 15.

Designs will be judged by four judges with expertise in fashion marketing, production and journalism.

The winning design will have a limited edition production run, with the designers name on the tag. The winner will also receive a commission on the bag’s sales, as well as a $1,000 gift certificate from their sponsor store, which would be Signature Clothing in Golden.

There will also be prizes for second and third place.
