Ever inspiring, Triumph are continuing to fly their flag as champions of women’s business. This year they’ve joined forces with five experts from the fashion and beauty industry to inspire and incite new business ventures across the country.
In aid of operation ‘Women in Making’ which debuted one year ago, Grazia's favourite shoe designer Sophia Webster, womenswear designer Roksanda Ilincic, founder of Nails Inc Thea Green, Fenwick Bond Street’s womenswear and lingerie Buyer Georgina Coulter and Lizzie McQuade, the winner of last year’s contest, all formed a panel on which they were grilled about their industry expertise and experience.
Aside from spilling their industry secrets to an eager audience of budding entrepreneurs last night in their store in Covent Garden, the team of five are all collaborating with London Fashion Week’s key lingerie sponsor on some exciting upcoming projects. Whilst Roksanda is busy designing five customised lingerie sets that will be sold in store, Thea Green has crafted the perfect scarlet shade (‘Makers Red’) that will be given away free with all purchases in the Maison Triumph store through April. Last year’s winner Lizzie McQuade will be making the most of her winnings, creating bespoke hats for the store too.
Later this year, this fabulous panel will choose another lucky winner who will be awarded a £10,000 prize, a year's worth of mentoring and the chance to be stocked within Fenwick Bond Street. A huge kick-start for any independant businesswoman so pop into their Maison Triumph store if you're in need of entrepeneurial inspiration!
