Triumph Inspiration Award

August 8, 2011
The Triumph Inspiration Award (TIA) is an international design competition that challenges fashion students to create a lingerie showpiece for the year’s design theme. This year the TIA was held in Berlin, Germany on July 6, 2011 during the Mercedes Benz fashion week.

Pristine De Guzman of School of Fashion and the Arts represented the Philippines in the TIA 2011. She was inspired by the power dressing of the 80’s and incorporated Triumph’s history as a corset maker in her design. Instead of the usual hidden boning in corsets, she made it visible outside to create a stronger silhouette. According to her, “women of today are strong, reliable and powerful, they are not afraid to take center stage as winners and leaders of the world.”

Here are Triumph’s top picks. From left to right (top) Pristine Deguzman’s entry, A contestant from Belgium’s entry, 3rd place: Diana Bobina from Romania with the creation AVA 1236 and (bottom) 2nd place: Nurten Yüksel from Turkey with the creation Hezârfe

1st place: Boglárka Bódis from Hungary with the design Les Fleurs du Mal

The TIA winner, Boglárka Bódis from Hungary, received a cash prize of EU 15,000 and Triumph will work with her to produce a limited edition commercial garment of her design.
