On a positive note from Garcia herself;

“Whether you are an aspiring designer, graphic artist or simply the office fashionista with a flair for what’s chic, now is the chance to put your talent to the test and turn your visions into reality,”.


“The design challenge we’re posing is a fashion transformation unlike any other,” said Garcia. “We’re taking an iconic accessory — the birth control case — and asking aspiring designers to take a shot at redesigning it into a chic, more sophisticated carrying case that they could slip into their purses.”


If this is for you, take your creative self to Design submissions will be accepted until June 30, 2008. The contest winners will be announced around the time of Fashion Week in fall 2008. It’s going to be very interesting to see which designs trump to the top.
