HEIDI: BAG DESIGNER
Project Runway judge Heidi Klum takes on her own fashion challenge

Though she can have any designer bag she wants, Klum is making it work on her own. After discovering the Web site designgurubags.com (which makes customized bags), she created three purses, which she's been carrying around N.Y.C. "You can create your own inspiration," says Klum about her designs. The best part? No frantic fabric searches at Mood!
