Sherrill Mosee, inventor and designer of MinkeeBlue 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!
Sherrill is the former president of Family Care Solutions, a nonprofit organization she founded to promote higher education among low-income women with children. The organization awarded over $3 million in childcare scholarships to help women with children stay in school and earn a college degree. 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, QVC and America's Big Deal. Sherrill holds a Master's Degree in electrical engineering from Drexel University. She's also an alum of the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator at Macy's. MinkeeBlue is currently sold in Macy's.
