You’ve seen the mad rush of covers over the past 48 hours. All anyone can talk are the celebs appearing left, right and centre on magazine covers for September 2010. Marie Claire have bagged one of the best for their superstar issue. It’s none other than Drew Barrymore! She looks phenomenal on the cover and will no doubt draw attention away from all the other lovely covergirls filling the shelves.
However, there will be another reason fashionistas are reaching for Marie Claire’s September issue this year! To celebrate London Fashion week Marie Claire has collaborated with top British designers Alice Temperley, Clements Ribeiro, William Tempest, PPQ and Felder Felder. Each designer has created an exclusive tote bag which is available free with Marie Claire’s September issue. Trish Halpin, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire says “We’re thrilled to be working with five of the most exciting names in British fashion for our September issue and giving our huge nationwide audience a taste of the fantastic design talent at London Fashion week.’ Here’s your first exclusive look at the five bags which are included:
The magazine hits shelves this morning, August 5th. If you have a favourite bag I would suggest getting to the stores early to claim your prize! These will be flying off the shelves and you can bet Fashion Foie Gras will be buying one issue for each bag!
However, the fun doesn’t end there. Marie Claire are hosting an event, which will begin on August 9th, titled ‘Marie Claire – Is it in the Bag?’ From 9th August-13th August, Marie Claire’s Facebook Page will be asking readers to submit pictures of themselves with one of their five designer bags. Marie Claire will then choose the daily 10 most stylish submissions and ask their Facebook fans to vote on their favourites. The winners will receive a special selection of designer goodies which include:
