FashionBite is a big supporter of the Triumph Inspiration Awards (TIA), which supports up and coming lingerie design talent by hosting a global competition each year.
In the 2012 British heat in May, FashionBite editor Emily Seares (alongside a team of industry experts) helped pick the overall UK winner – Sian Whitefoot (from DeMonFort Uni) – from a list of student design hopefuls, and she is set to represent the UK in the global finals in Shanghai. Check out our interview with Sian HERE.
In true Olympic spirit, it’s now our turn to get behind Sian (and the UK) by voting online for her at www.triumph-inspiration-award.com.
[In addition, you can win a trip for two to Shanghai to support Sian in the finals - just by voting!]
Alongside online votes, a five-member jury including Hong Kong based actress and singer Karen Mok, Jenson Button’s girlfriend Jessica Michibata, Chinese fashion designer Uma Wang, world-known director and photographer Wing Shya and Italian Vogue editor in chief Franca Sozzani, will help decide the overall global winner, from 31 student finalists worldwide.
Voting is open until August 23, so you’ve still got plenty of time to get behind the UK! www.triumph-inspiration-award.com.
