Our Favorite TIA 2011 Lingerie
Triumph Inspiration Award is drawing closer to the final as 37 international finalists have been announced and given a photoshoot for their showpieces with a stunning red-head model – Lily Cole. The theme of this year’s award is 125 Years of Celebrating Women that is very special as it honors the Triumph’s 125th year anniversary. All of the contestants did a great job creating unique pieces that reflect their views on celebrating women’s bodies, but today we pick our most favorite showpieces and share them with you.
Perfect Imperfection by Carolina Leone, Argentina
Combining modern and antique elements this piece shows the beauty of body imperfections.
Elizabethan Goddess by Jayson Araja, Canada
Inspired by Elizabethan Era Canadian designer accentuated the hip line with crinoline.
Mirror of Beauty by Vladimír Staněk, Czech Republic
Based on symbolism this design combines mystery of mirror and human soul and gentleness of flower.
Emotion by Trine Engebretsen, Denmark
Inspired with women’s inner world of feelings and emotions this design looks rather futuristic.
Les Fleurs du Mal by Boglárka Bódis, Hungary
Inspired by the quote from Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal the designer calls to celebrate a woman’s body without looking for imperfections.
The Edge of Euphoria by Sarah Ryan, Ireland
Combining the elements of rock ‘n’ roll and feminine sensuality this 70s inspired showpiece had our eye the first moment we saw it.
Infinity by Sharon Ezra, Israel
This piece reflects its name the most and has been inspired by the story of ‘dancer-rebel’ Isadora Duncan.
Flower Strike by Natalia Stachura, Poland
Another recreation of women’s symbol, flower.
Le Boudoir by Pedro Jorge, Portugal
Inspired by the looks of Gloria Swanson and 1920s glamour the designer has created an interesting interpretation of such common (lingerie fashion) theme as twenties. Bravo!
