Every year, fashion and design students unite to compete in a worldwide competition known as, The Independent Handbag Designer Awards. The IHDA was created exclusively to celebrate handbag design and creativity from the United States and around the world. Founded by Handbag Designer 101 and the HBD Network, the IHDA is now in its eighth successful year and is a fashion/design industry staple.
