Playful Promises have launched a design competition inviting students, graduates and those with a flair for fashion to submit lingerie designs for the Playful Promises Spring/Summer 2013 lingerie collection. Paradise is Playful Promises forthcoming SS13 lingerie collection, featuring “a future-retro look inspired by innocence versus sin and exotic infusions”. Inspiring stuff! Playful Promises is looking for designs for pretty much anything that you might consider to be lingerie: corsets, bras, briefs, suspender belts, basques, peek-a-boo briefs, waspies and more. This should give you plenty of room to explore. The brief suggests a colour palette of nudes and blush pinks, with dashes of brights such as acid yellow, apricot and magenta. Inspiration can also be drawn from John Milton’s notorious poem Paradise Lost.
The winning design will be featured in Playful Promises SS13 lingerie collection, which will be sold globally to independent boutiques, department stores and well-known ecommerce sites. That’s going to look good on anyone’s design CV! The competition closes on 31st March 2012 and entries will be judged by Founder & Designer Emma Parker, with Design & Production Manager Louise McNaughton. The collection will be launched July 2012 and then available in stores January 2013. For more information, a copy of the brief and trend inspiration, please contact Delphine Thwaites. Do let me know if you enter, and… good luck!
