Triumph has launched the second edition of its successful Women in Making campaign, which celebrates craftsmanship and expertise in a number of creative fields.
The brand has enlisted a string of creative professionals to front the project and act as mentors to budding entrepreneurs, who will be invited to showcase their own inspirational business idea via the triumph.com/womeninmaking website.
Each creative submission will be judged by the mentors, or ‘Influencer Makers’, and a Women in Making winner will be awarded a £10,000 prize from Triumph, alongside a year’s worth of mentoring from the makers panel and the chance to be stocked within Fenwick Bond Street.
This season’s Influencer Makers include noted fashion designer Roksanda Ilinic, winner of the British Fashion Council’s new generation award Sophia Webster, founder of Nails Inc Thea Green, Fenwick Bond Street’s Womenswear and Lingerie buying manager Georgina Coulter and AW13 Women in Making bursary fund winner Lizzie McQuade.
The makers will create bespoke products that will be displayed and sold within Maison Triumph, a pop-up store in Seven Dials, London. Ilinic, for example, will customise five sets of lingerie, called ‘Roksanda’s Amazing Sensation’.
Coulter will also be offering retail insight to the winner in a mentorship session, hosting talks at Maison Triumph to inspire women who want to get into business, as well as working with season’s winner to retail in Fenwick.
