Triumph Inspiration Award 2010

Last night I managed to nip along to the Triumph Inspiration Award, an annual international lingerie-design contest for fashion students.

Prior to the awards ceremony, Rankin had photographed Helena Christiansen in all 20 of the final outfits, which can be seen at Some showstopping numbers over there.

At the event, 20 different models went down the runway, as the student designers waited to see who’d won the cash prize and would have their outfit made up and sold by Triumph. The judges were Matthew Williamson, Hilary Riva, Helena Christiansen, Rankin, Suzanne McKenna and Karen Mok.

Here are a couple of fun outfits, one made from silk stockings:

And another made from CDs and video tape:

Now on to the runners-up. The model on the right is wearing the design that came third – created by Ludovico Loffreda from Italy. The model on the left is wearing the outfit that was the ‘people’s choice’ winner and was placed second by the judges, a wood and fabric design by Amaya Carcamo from Spain.

Here’s the winner – a body made by Nicolay Bojilov of Bulgaria. It’s easy to see why the judges loved it.

Competition: Want some fancy pants of your own? I have one pair of limited-edition size 10 shorties specially made for this event up for grabs, in white with the London skyline pictured across the back. Just be the first person to leave a ‘yes please’ in the comments section below. UK entrants only please.
