Three lingerie and swimwear brands have been nominated for WGSN Futures Awards.
The annual awards aim to recognise businesses that push the boundaries of the international fashion market in the core segments of the industry: design, retail, marketing and digital.
Allerton Swimwear has been shortlisted for Best Start-up, while THINX period pants will go head to head with four other fashion brands for the Innovative Design Award.
Meanwhile, luxury loungewear brand Holland Street, which specialise in printed silk kimonos, kaftans and robes, has been shortlisted for the Avery Dennison Emerging Brand Award.
The awards are judged by an elite panel of international experts and attract entries from more than 50 countries.
The winners will be announced at a sparkling ceremony, which will take place on 26 May at Basement 1 in Bloomsbury, London.
