De Montfort University (DMU) Final Year Contour Fashion student Sian Whitefoot has won the global final of the Triumph Inspiration Awards at Shanghai Fashion Week.
Whitefoot, who beat 15 other students to win the UK final with her design Ecliptic Renewal earlier this year, will take home the grand prize of E15,000.
On winning the UK final, Whitefoot told Lingerie Insight: “I am just so shocked, I can’t believe it. It’s such a good experience. I won the popular competition, but I thought it was just my mum getting people to vote.”
DMU course leader Gillian Proctor said: “This is the most prestigious student competition in intimate apparel… We’re absolutely thrilled!”
