Project Information

Fashion Sewist needed for a Handbag company (DAAH01)

We are currently having issues with applications. Please email your application to with the project code and why you would be a good fit for the project.


The client is an accessory start-up that produces highly personalised handbags in the UK and Spain.

The produced bags are designed in such way that you can buy new add-ons and customise the item according to your personal preferences or the occasions you need it for.


The client needs a talented fashion designer or sewist from Solent University who is knowledgeable about fabrics, patterns and sewing techniques but also has their own sewing machine or at least has an access to one.

The structure of the handbags includes two linings – velvet materials outside and lining underneath with interface between both fabrics. Additionally, the right candidate would need to be able to attach the closing zipper and this is why the client is searching for a second or third-year student capable of completing this work.

Students with previous experience and portfolios will be put to the front of the queue.


To apply, click the button to the right by the application deadline.

Please include links to examples of your work in your application.

If you want to know any more about this or any other creative agency projects, please contact Solent Creatives.
