Budding lingerie designers, here’s another design competition to test your skills.
Esty Lingerie specialises in selling handmade luxury lingerie from independent designers from all over the world as well as its own brand, and for the last few years the retailer has been offering fans the chance to get in on the action by organising a design competition that sees the winner’s creation turned into a limited edition set to be sold on the website.
This year marks the fourth annual Esty design competition, which is open to entrants across the world. It opens for entries on 1 June and closes on 31 August 2014.
The theme this year is seasons and the brief asks participants to design a two-piece lingerie or nightwear set inspired by their favourite season. Entries will be judged not just on design but also on originality, presentation and ease of manufacture, and you must submit details of the fabrics and trims to be used should you win. Visit the Esty website for the full brief.
The winner will be announced after the closing date, and in addition to seeing their set go into production to become a limited edition line for sale on Esty Lingerie, will receive a set of their own plus a £100 gift voucher and an interview on the website. The second and third place runners up will receive £50 and £25 gift voucher respectively and will also be interviewed about their designs.
