Zac Posen Tote to Benefit Teachers

Celeb favorite designer Zac Posen has teamed with DHL to create a limited edition handbag, to be launched during New York Fashion Week, to benefit the nonprofit organization, TeachersCount.org, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise the status of the teaching profession and provide resources to the education community. The designer’s handbags, which normally retail from $800 and up, are already popular among stars like Rachel Bilson and Beyonce and now teachers can bring some Hollywood glamour to their classrooms. The red and yellow leather tote is everything Zac Posen is famous for: fun, feminine, and glamorous. Get Zac’s bag for yourself or the teacher in your life, $400, for a limited time at toteforteachers.org — and remember, the best part is that 100% of the proceeds will benefit Teachers Count.

What the hell are they thinking? A $400 for a teacher? They won’t be able to afford it… Unless a wealthy student bought it for them. This is just plain ridiculous….

The bag isn’t all that. You’re paying for the designer name.

You guys are all missing the point–the bag is NOT necessarily designed for teachers, ANYONE can use it. Furthermore, ALL of the proceeds from the bags are going to Teachers Count.

It seems people here have reading comprehension problems. But I guess you can blame People.com for the misleading blog post title.

it’s a good question, about who can afford such expensive handbags. i mean, how many weeks of groceries would that pouch of leather cover?

i came across this article, about just that! the $59,000 handbag.

In my family we have four teachers. I can safely tell you that none of them can afford on a public school teacher wage a $400 bag. Poor idea from DHL and Zac Posen. If it was really meant for teachers then they should of priced it for real world teachers and not the teachers who live on TV. (Because let’s be honest, on TV even the “low” paying people wear really $$ clothes/bags! I mean we’ve all seen the if Friends, NBC show, happened in real life how they wouldn’t live/dress/eat like they do on TV!)
