LCF Contour student nominated for Rising Star of the Year!

January 11, 2017 in uncategorised

Last term, final year BA (Hons) Fashion Contour student Amelia Stephenson was nominated for Rising Star of the Year in trade journal Lingerie Insight’s annual industry awards. Congratulations Amelia! Last month, she spoke to the London Evening Standard about the nomination, how she chose lingerie as a specialism, and what inspires her designs.

The interview covered a number of other topics including launching her own label, Amelie Louise London, and also the most important lesson she’s learnt while studying:

“I’m now in my final year and I think one of the most important things I’ve learnt is to believe in myself and to just go for it. Having the confidence to introduce myself to people within the industry has resulted in some exciting opportunities for me. Also to just get involved wherever you can, especially if the project is something you believe in. You never know who you will meet and the connections you can make.”

You can read the full interview over on the Evening Standard’s website.

She was asked to join a photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, which took place in a hotel in Paris with French celebrity Caroline Receveur (from Dancing With the Stars 7) and there has been press interest already. Celine has already had lots of requests for her pieces which she plans to offer via The Lingerie Lab who made this shoot possible. The  images will be featured in the February 2017 issue.
