Student Showcase: February

We're very pleased to announce the February winner of our Student Showcase, London College of Fashion's Yue Zhou (known to her friends as Elf). Yue Zhou is in her second year of uni studying BA Contour Design and has so far proved to have some exceptionally creative design ideas.
Yue Zhou 
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.

The work, which Yue 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.  

When asked her opinion of modern lingerie design, she says:
"I believe that lingerie is not about eroticism, but about self-expression. My work combines both function and sexuality and makes the best of a woman's looks, whilst controlling the body."

As the winner of this months Student Showcase, Yue Zhou's work will be featured in our  February Newsletter and industry Press Release, as well as in lingerie trade magazines Lingerie Buyer, Lingerie Insight and on The Lingerie Blog. We wish her all the best for the future!
