Item of the Day: emPOWERED

emPOWEREDFashion Week is quickly approaching, and you know what that means: Instagrams, Tweets, Pins and other data-related media that requires heavy reliance on our mobile devices.

Being stuck with only 10% battery charge at Lincoln Center will become a thing of the past thanks to a new line of tech-enabled fashion.

Loni Edwards, the chief executive behind crowdsourcing handbag label Stitch Collective, developed emPOWERED; the newest way for the fashion masses to charge and recharge their digital lives.

“My phone was always running out of battery and I hated using heavy and bulky phone charging cases,” she explains. “I wanted something that seamlessly fit into my life.”

Out of that thinking, Edwards featured the startup’s first ever, patent-pending, battery-enabled clutch called the All in One. The All in One is made of 100% leather, lined with natural canvas and manufactured right here in New York.

The built-in battery charges phones, and most other portable devices, as quickly as a wall adapter, all in the comfort of a chic clutch. The All In One also comes with a detachable chain strap, which adds to the bag’s versatility.

Check out the collection and get a first-hand look at what is sure to be a favorite among showgoers, bloggers and fans of fashion, alike.
