“125 Years of Celebrating Women” Young designers compete for the fourth year in the worldwide lingerie design competition.
2011 is a special year for Triumph as it marks their 125th anniversary. In celebration of this, Triumph International, one of the world’s leading lingerie and shapewear brands, invites young students to compete within the industry-leading Triumph Inspiration Awards for the fourth year.
The Triumph Inspiration Awards curates the most innovative and inspirational lingerie designs and provides a prestigious platform to showcase them firstly on a national level, then secondly on a global level. The National final to select the UK representative will take place on Thursday, 31 March 2011.
Triumph has collaborated with world-renowned UK fashion schools London College of Fashion and DeMontfort University to find the next talent in lingerie design. Students are invited to prove their creativity and expertise to design a ‘catwalk showpiece’ to represent “125 Years of Celebrating Women”.
Gillian Proctor, Programme Leader, Contour & Contour Fashion at De Monfort said: “In the current wavering economic climate it is reassuring to see that a notable brand such as Triumph can maintain their vision for innovation. By their continuing support of up and coming student talent, they are a leading force in nurturing our future designers and technicians, without whom our industry would surely flounder.”
Deborah Minshall, Course Leader, BA (Hons) Fashion Contour said: “London College of Fashion is delighted to have been invited to take part in the prestigious Triumph Inspiration Awards, which will give our talented BA (Hons) Fashion Contour students an amazing opportunity to showcase their designs to a global audience. The theme of ‘125 Years of Celebrating Women’ has been an inspiring brief which has given our students a platform to demonstrate their creativity and utilise the specialist skills they have learnt on the course.”
