Gillian Proctor, Contour Fashion programme leader at De Montfort University, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for the graduates to showcase the breadth of their applications, skills and fit emphasis which the course is known for. We are delighted to be part of Dessous London in our 70th anniversary year.”
Dessous London co-founder Bok Goodall commented: “The Dessous London team are passionate about the lingerie industry in the UK and we are so fortunate to work with the best in the business. We always have an eye on the future though, and these young designers and their collections represent the shape of things to come. We are delighted they’ll be with us.”
The six graduates were among 22 young designers to showcase their work at the 2017 Contour Fashion Show in London earlier this month.
Dessous London will take place at Carousel London, on the corner of Baker Street, on Wednesday, July 19 to Thursday, July 20.
