A university student from Surrey is paying for an expensive law degree by designing and selling lingerie.

Nineteen year-old Amani-Cane Elouazani has made around £12,000 from running her lingerie brand which she has put towards her student fees.

Her company, Lingerie By Elouzani, designs and makes a range of non-wired bras and nightwear styles and sells them online.

Each product is made to order, and the most expensive item is £40.

The Oxford Brookes student has now sold around 1,000 items.

Speaking to student magazine, The Tab, Elouazani said: “It got to the point where I’d come home from shopping and my mom would get annoyed that I’d bought yet another couple of pairs of bras. One day I just thought, ‘why don’t I just make my own then I can have exactly what I want?’

“It started out that I made a couple items for myself and then friends and family started to ask if I could make them one and as that progressed I saw an opportunity to turn it into an actual business.”

But second-year student Elouazani, who got a 2:1 in her studies last year, does not see bras and knickers in her immediate future.

“I’m very adamant that my studies are always my priority. It took a couple of years to finally launch my online store because of that exact reason. I started designing just after my GCSEs and have only just launched my website,” she said.

“Every time exams come around I take a break so I can prioritise studying.”
