The Rebecca Minkoff x Polyvore Dee Clutch Makes Its Debut!

Who Do You Want To See Rockin' the Dee?

Remember the Dee clutch designed by Polyvore member f21obsessed from our Rebecca Minkoff Runway Design Challenge earlier this year? Well, it's ready to make its big debut. Rebecca Minkoff will be launching the Dee clutch at their Fashion's Night Out party in NYC tonight at Saks! And you'll be able to purchase the bag exclusively at Saks, as well. Here's the bag in all its studded glory:

The Dee has recently been spotted on Leandra of the Man Repeller, and we want to know who else you think should be rockin' the amazing Rebecca Minkoff x Polyvore clutch bag! In celebration of the bag's debut, create a look for your favorite celebrity or fashion blogger with the Dee and you could win your very own Dee clutch!

We also caught up with f21obsessed to see how she's feeling about the big launch!

The Dee is finally making its debut! How does it feel to see the finished product of your design?

It still feels surreal. I don't think it will hit me until I actually see it in stores! A lot of other emotions come into play - from nervousness to excitement. Will it sell well? What will people think? And is it really here?

What do your family and friends think about the bag you designed?

My family has seen the bag and a couple of friends. They think it's great and interesting to see it come to life.

How has this whole experience been for you?

I can seriously say that my trip to NYC last Fashion Week was one of the best things that I've ever experienced in my life. It was so much fun and also a great learning experience. I always knew that I'd rather be the person behind the scenes, designing, than out in the lime light. But this experience taught me that sometimes to move forward you have to be out there and that's okay. :)

Join us in congratulating f21obsessed on designing a fabulous bag for Rebecca Minkoff and enter the contest now!

Next came another contest for a chance to be Rebecca’s fashion stylist at her first NYFW show. Users were challenged to create an outfit with Rebecca’s Spring 2011 collection as well as the consumer facing ‘Dee’ clutch. With over 4,200 entries, the looks were voted upon and the selected winner received nearly 20,000 votes (great crowdsourcing) and was flown to New York Fashion Week to style Rebecca’s show (winning outfit below).
