Sherrill Mosee, Inventor and Designer of MinkeeBlue: Sherrill set out to solve a problem she calls, the ‘overload bag syndrome’. Like many women, Sherrill carried two or three bags to work—a purse, laptop bag, lunch bag, and sometimes shoes in her purse. She wanted to create an organizational fashion bag for busy women whose role changed throughout the day—from an executive to fitness enthusiast, daily commuter, and mom. MinkeeBlue is her solution! Mosee put her degree in engineering to work and came up with the patented MinkeeBlue design. She describes MinkeeBlue as a reflection of “who we are” and “what we do” in our daily lives – “Your day is in the Bag”, says Mosee.

MinkeeBlue has been featured on the Today Show, the Katie Couric Show and sold on QVC. She is also the premier winner of America’s Big Deal, a shoppable pitch competition which aired on the USA Network. MinkeeBlue will launch in Macy’s Q4 2022. Read more at: https://minkeeblue.com/
