German lingerie brand Triumph International’s annual Inspiration award, is an annual competition that gives design students a chance to show their stuff by creating fantastical statement pieces that are sexy and inventive. Finalists from 37 different countries compete for a chance to win €15,000 and see their design translated into a commercial piece.
In addition to celebrity judges including Helena Christensen and Ellen von Unwerth, online voters can chime in with their thoughts at triumphinspirationaward.com starting June 7th. Images of the pieces on Lily Cole shot by Ellen von Unwerth, provide a glimpse at the range of ideas featured within the competition; everything from classic boudoir chic, to out of this world futurism is represented in the diverse entries. Added bonus, each and every one who votes online is entered for a chance to win a trip to the grand final in Berlin!
