Better roll out the runway because the Leather Clutch Purse is a fashionista's dream accessory! Inspired by an original winning design from Project Runway Season 7. Our newest addition to the Rethreaded x Southwest Airlines Collection and the Project Runway All Stars Accessory Line is guaranteed to change lives and turn heads.

Open the bag to reveal a roomy interior, spacious enough to hold all the essentials; phone, cards, keys and lipgloss.
Irina Shabayeva, winner of Project Runway Episode 6, Season 7 was tasked with designing an accessory from items you would find on a Southwest Airlines® flight during the unconventional materials episode of Project Runway All Stars, Season 7. As the challenge winner, Irina had the opportunity to work with Southwest® to create an All Stars accessories line with a non-profit organization. Rethreaded and Irina collaborated to design a collection and line of products inspired by the original Project Runway bag.
“After winning the challenge, I had a chance to visit Rethreaded in Jacksonville and was so impressed by their dedication and the work they’re doing for the survivors in their community. It was amazing to see how my design is being used for healing.” Irina Shabayeva
