jill-e Designs Brings New Camera Bags, Accessories to PMA '08

VICTOR, New York, – jill-e designs, the fast-growing women-owned company that makes sturdy, stylish camera bags and accessories for the serious female photographer, will arrive at this year’s PMA with samples of exciting camera bags in new sizes, designs and colors, as well as sassy new camera straps – all for the woman photographer who wants to define her own personal and professional style, jill-e designs announced.

Attendees of the Photo Marketing Association show, Jan. 31-Feb. 2, Las Vegas Convention Center, will find current and soon-to-arrive products from jill-e designs in Booth #U259 (upstairs, South Hall). New offerings include handy wristlet bags in a variety of striking new colors; large rolling and medium-sized bags in dramatic red; sturdy camera straps sporting the jill-e designs logo; and a new line of eye-catching bags for point-n-shoot cameras.

These products will be available by spring (point-n-shoot bags by summer) on the jill-e designs web site and from the company’s growing global network of retail photo stores and dealers, Owner/Partner Jill Dorn said. She noted that jill-e designs is right on track with its business plan to steadily expand its product portfolio, including new lines that take the company into new but related market segments, and its worldwide distribution network.

jill-e designs employs designs, colors and materials that take essential photographic accessories far beyond the traditional male-oriented offerings, the company said. For example, professional camera bags typically have a large number of compartments and a large amount of padding to protect cameras and lenses, but they’re composed of nylon or canvas – plus they’re utilitarian in appearance and usually black.

Camera bags from jill-e designs, on the other hand, incorporate the padding, protection and other attributes found in the best professional bags – but they’re created from such materials as leather and suede, designed with the flare of stylish purses and carry bags, and available in a variety of fashionable colors. In addition, they incorporate features important to women, such as additional pockets and a detachable personal pouch, jill-e designs said.

Information on all available jill-e designs camera bags and other accessories, as well as a complete list of specialty photo shops, dealers and web sites in the growing jill-e designs retail network, can be found at:
