The champagne was flowing and the music was pumping as Maison Triumph kicked off London Fashion Week. Situated in an uber cool pop-up shop in Covent Garden, London, the lingerie house launched their empowering campaign to celebrate the craftsmanship and innovation of women makers. Triumph, who is the official catwalk lingerie suppliers for the British Fashion Council at LFW, has entitled the campaign, ‘Supporting Women in Making’. The campaign champions female makers across a variety of creative disciplines including jewellery making, fashion design, footwear, food, mosaics, millinery, art illustration and more.
Makers of lingerie since 1886, Triumph are allowing other makers to showcase their work and potentially win a £10,000 bursary towards their creative business. And fronting the campaign is an impressive host of inspirational celebrities made up of singer and songwriter Paloma Faith, stylist Grace Woodward, celebrity chef Gizzi Erksine and design Roksanda Illinic. All makers in their own right, the women will be judging the competition and acting as mentors to the winner.

The space is open to the public for free until the end of the year and includes workshops, videos, an exhibition, the Makers and their work displayed and for sale, as well as the AW13 Triumph collection. You don’t need to be a maker or even particularly arty and Triumph are encouraging everyone come down and take part.
