Triumph has launches its fourth Triumph Inspiration Award adaptation with the winning design of 2011: ‘Les Fleurs du Mal’.
The design piece, by Boglàrka Bòdis, was chosen by a prominent jury as the winner from over 30 other designs from all over the world.
The Hungarian was inspired to create her design by Baudelaire’s famous poem ‘Les Fleurs du Mal,’ which celebrates woman and her femininity, ‘tout entière’.
Triumph was so impressed by Bodis many ideas for the commercialization of the concept that the company chose to create a mini-collection, instead of just one garment, out of her showpiece.
Triumph engaged famous fashion photographer Giovanni Gastel and French It-girl Jeanne Damas to take some exclusive shots for the launch of the ‘Les Fleurs du Mal’ mini-collection.
The mini-collections encompass four exclusive styles: a push-up bra, a brief, an underwired body and a bra-vest.
The pieces, which are made of a nude, stretch powernet, incorporate colour contrast tapes and thread-stitching trim.
Bòdis decided to leave a secure job in the Prime Minister’s office to join the Fashion Design course at KREA Contemporary Art School in Budapest, Hungary.
On winning the TIA 2011, Bòdis said: “I’m the lucky girl who won the Triumph Inspiration Award, organised by one of the biggest lingerie companies in the world. And, now I am in touch with the design team at Triumph and have learnt how they work. I am delighted with the results and very grateful about this experience.”
The entire mini-collection will be sold exclusively in House of Fraser, from November, 2012.
