Ascending Butterfly's 'Spring Into Bags' Special Feature sponsored by:


For Spring 2010, Ascending Butterfly has been hosting a special feature called 'Spring Into Bags' we are going to be reviewing and giving away hot handbags from 'IT' bag designers! Fasten your seatbelts fellow bag lovers you are in for an awesome ride! Can you believe we are already featuring the THIRD bag in the feature? Is it me, or is 2010 just flying by super fast? (In case you missed them, the first bag was by Elliot Lucca, it was a convertible leather crossbody in a 'poppy' color, and the second bag was by Linea Pelle, it was also a leather convertible clutch in a very spring 'kelly green' color).

This time around I had the opportunity to ask the designer, Marissa Del Rosario, questions about the line, her inspirations and her life!

Here is our Questions & Answers session:

Q. How long have you been a handbag designer?

A. My DBA was started in 2007 but I did not really start designing until 2008. That would put me on a 2-year group but I have taken some classes in apparel designing in 2001. I've been designing ever since.

Q. What did you do before designing bags?

A. I worked as operating room nurse and still am. I had a bout of career burn out and thought this would be a great time to do a 180 (degree) turn by doing something that I'd always wanted to do: design.

Q. What are some of your design inspirations? in terms of both designs and color -

A. My designs are inspired by ready to wear collections, jewelry, architectural designs, flowers and anything that triggers an emotion. What we do, hear, see, feel and even smell are all connected. A good example of this is when you emailed me about your preference for the red color instead of beige because of your latina heritage. The color red evokes feelings of fearlessness in self-expression, of being bold and it definitely demands attention. (AB: Thanks Marissa, readers I did receive the 'cherry red' color and it does command attention, in a GOOD way.)

Q. What were the biggest obstacles you had to surmount when you launched your first collection?

A. Everything. But that did not faze me because I have this strong passion for creating & designing that I was willing to step outside my comfort zone. From finding the right manufacturers (I've searched in N.Y. & L.A.; overseas is out of the question), leather vendors, pattern makers to meeting people to network with and learning to 'photoshop' my handbags were all a big adventure.

Q. What will be big this spring?

A. I see a lot of black & whites, army greens, and tribal and/or ethnic colors, both in jewelries, clothes and accessories. This trend is influenced, I think, to our current economic climate. I'd call this our 'let's get back to basics' response--colors of black & white, greens (nature), and tribal colors (again, earth tones of browns, greens, greys).

Q. What inspired the Zip Line?

A. Zippers are usually for utilitarian purposes. But I got a kick out of using them as a 'jewelry' for the handbags, especially when they are two-toned such as that of the cross body & hobo in which I used silvers encompassing the gold. This zipper combination make the bags unique; so far, I have not seen this application in any handbags out there. I'm quite proud of coming up with this design. (AB: Readers this really is a stunning juxtaposition!)

Q. Looking ahead, what are the trends for Fall 2010 bags in terms of shape and color?

A. There is definitely a move towards structured bags. But it's a tough act to give up soft, conforming, unstructured handbags. They are here to stay. Women are also into big bags with lots of pockets, multi-length handles, and versatile designs (one that can be used for day and evening).

Q. What retail locations carry Marissa Designs?

A. I've changed my brand name to Marissa Del Rosario. Although my company is still in its infancy, my collection is already in a N.Y. showroom and is in a few stores in California.

Q. Will you be solely focusing on bags, or do you intend to pursue other accessories such as jewelry, sunglasses etc?

A. As for now, I'm focusing on bags. But I have toyed with the idea of designing shoes... but that's another chapter :) (AB: If there are shoes coming down the line, I for one, can't wait to see them, and hopefully feature them here FIRST!)

I am eternally grateful to Marissa for not only the opportunity to review & giveaway a bag from her line, but for the time and consideration of our Q&A Session.  It's not very often you get the chance to look behind the designs straight to the person behind the brand. I find it amazing that Marissa is an Operating Room Nurse that is also pursuing her creative desires via design. Maybe I can relate because for many years I was seriously pursuing becoming a Cardiologist!

So to all my butterflies who think switching gears in this economy is virtually impossible, here is a designer who is proving to you it can be done! Marissa is a designer to watch!

Now back to the bag at hand (no pun intended!). I have been 'field testing' the Somerset Hobo in 'cherry red', and I absolutely love it. Somehow it feels like a bag I have always had, it's roomy without being oversized, and the multi color in the zip detail is a true stand out, it runs along the front and handle of the bag. It's very much on trend with the 'rocker' inspired styles I saw on the runway this Spring. It manages to be trendy while not being overdone so you can carry it with you throughout more than one season!

Somerset Hobo Details - ARV $332 (Shown in Latte Beige, I however received the Cherry Red):


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Triple zipper detail in front only (silver/gold/silver) - Truly unique, allows you to wear either/or when it comes to your jewelry!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Soft matte leather

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - East west zipper closure - It's very well done on this bag, eye catching but not overdone. It's do-able in the day which I can't say about all the 'rocker' style inspired bags.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -Handles with zipper detail

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 14” shoulder drop

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Inside large double slip pockets & zipper pocket

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Turquoise fabric lining (Very pretty color, it's not often I find myself raving about a bag's lining!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -15” l x 13” h x 4” w

WIN IT! - Ascending Butterfly and our friends at Marissa Del Rosario would like to provide one lucky winner with the opportunity to have a Marissa Del Rosario 'Sierra Cross Body' bag in the 'Latte Beige' color from her 2010 Collection! (This is a $196 retail value!) - Don't you just ♥ Marissa Del Rosario?

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a NING group with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!
