If You Please Announces Student Showcase Winner for Feb 2011
If You Please, Lingerie Boutique does some great work and one of the projects they do very well is a monthly Student Showcase highlighting the work of young designers. They recently announced the winner for February, Yue Zhou, a sophomore at London College of Fashion who is working towards her BA in Contour Design.
The Student Showcase is a monthly contest of young designers making their way into the intimate apparel industry sponsored by If You Please. Amber Thomson, founder of If You Please was kind enough to send us a few images for Zhou’s work.
The work, which Zhou submitted for February’s showcase, is an avant garde piece inspired by minimalism and futurism, drawing on modern art and architecture as a starting point for her designs. She targets the fashion forward with her chic and cheeky style and would define this piece as modern, feminine and seductive. The piece presents geometric shapes and minimal lines, made from luxurious fabrics and finished with delicate binding to frame each panel.
“She has recently worked on a live project for The Triumph Inspiration Awards and is building her industry experience by taking a part-time internship for high-end lingerie label Bordelle. She would love to work with the head designer of a luxury lingerie brand but her true ambition is to set up her own label,” said Thomson.
If you are a student wishing to submit your designs, you may send images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
