Julie Deane - Cambridge Satchel Co. eyes Helena Bonham Carter collaboration

Cambridge Satchel Company founder Julie Deane wants to collaborate with Helena Bonham Carter.

The accessory designer, who became an entrepreneurial inspiration after building her company from a home-based side project to a world renowned business, would love the 47-year-old actress - who is known for her quirky style - to design a range of satchels exclusively for the brand.

She gushed: ''That would be the dream, wouldn't it? That would be fantastic - she's done Vogue and she's a very stylish person. We always set our bar very high.''

The Cambridge Satchel Company began as an operation between Julie and her mother Freda Thomas at Julie's home in Cambridge in 2008 and has grown exponentially over the last five years.

Julie is particularly amazed by how many Hollywood stars have embraced the leather bags.

Speaking at the launch of Cambridge Satchel Company's new pop-up store in Spitalfields, London, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Elle Fanning, she has a few of them. And then it was like, 'Have you seen Emma Stone on the set of 'Spider-Man' wearing her Cambridge Satchel vintage bag?'

''And when the photos of Alexa Chung with her 11-inch navy Cambridge Satchel went out, that was incredible, amazing, because she can have anything and she chose to have one of ours and that was a brilliant moment.''

Cambridge Satchel bags are even a huge hit with the royal family and Julie hinted she has provided a bag for Duchess Catherine and Prince William's four-month-old son, Prince George.

She added: ''The princesses, Beatrice and Eugenie, do have Cambridge Satchels - and even the youngest members of the royal family.''

After enjoying incredible success as a self-starter, Julie admits she has fielded offers from some of the top luxury companies in the world, who are all seeking to purchase the Cambridge Satchel Company.

The British entrepreneur is now fielding one major offer and may have a buyer by Christmas.

She explained: ''I'm considering one offer at the moment. I wouldn't sell it all out because it's like my third child ... But the one thing that would make me consider it is if it was someone who would really open doors for us.

''There's expertise out there that we just don't have, so if somebody said, 'We can help you build a strong management team so you can really take on China and do it well', then that would be fantastic.''

The Cambridge Satchel Company's new pop-up store is now open and can be located at 16 Lamb Street, Spitalfields, east London.
