Juxtaposed: A Triumph in Leather Making

For a second season Maison Triumph staged  a takeover of 57/59 Monmouth St in Seven Dials and  launched a truly inspirational campaign designed to inspire women in business with The Maker Project.  

They assembled the “Makers Collective”, a panel of successful creative women in a range of fields recruited to inspire, mentor and coach and who wouldn’t welcome advice and help form the likes of Paloma Faith, Grace Woodward, Gizzy Irksine and Roksanda Ilincic.

Then as part of the ‘Maker Project’ Triumph chose an eclectic mix of  women to help champion their businesses. These women are artists, chocolatiers, illustrators and designers and have all received guidance and advice as well as some fantastic lingerie that they were then gently coaxed into modelling alongside their craft. These images were shot to show how lingerie can create confidence.

As beautiful as the underwear is and as undeniably confident as they looked wearing it, it is the mentoring that this project afforded each participant that is the real coup.  The great part of this initiative for us is the events that have ben running alongside it.

There are still events running right through to January, click here to find out more.  As our theme is Juxtaposed this month, we are recommending the leather crafting workshop with Una Burke on 21st November.

Una is a conceptual leather designer who juxtaposes traditional and modern with her pieces.  She uses traditional leather working techniques to produce conceptual creations and her aim is always to create something undefinable as a garment so as to avoid being pigeon holed in fashion. Very .Cent!

But as I said before there are a number of workshops courtesy of the Maison Triumph initiatives, so take full advantage!
