Student Showcase: January

I'm always eager to promote up and coming talent, so I thought what better way to do so than to showcase the work of one brilliant student each month.

Our January entry is London College of Fashion's, Contour Design student Jessica Preece.

Obsessed with lingerie since the age of 14, Jess (pictured wearing her own design) has experience working for the likes of fashion designer Hermione De Paula and Bunnies Forever and previously worked as a sales assistant in our Camden Lock boutique. Apart from being a joy to work with, she's also very talented and has recently come up with her own shapewear and products for a live swimwear competition set by Speedo (pictured in black) in which she was asked to re-design their obsolete LzrRacer olympic suit.

Jess is currently taking a year out to work as an intern at Agent Provocateur's London HQ. At the moment she's working in production and doing PA duties for new head honcho Sarah Shotton, but will shortly be moving on to design to put her talent into action. She also writes her own blog Ruby Slippers and Silky Knickers, about all things fashion and contour. You can read it by clicking the link.
