Interview: Betsan Evans, 2015 Lingerie Design and style Competitors 3rd Location Winner

Author: Estelle

Let me commence with an apology for how slow I’ve been with last year’s design competitors. 2015 saw me go back to function after maternity leave and I discovered myself juggling my company, a infant and a 30-hour a week job for the 1st time ever – life was busy to say the least!

The winning style is getting developed – the fabrics are winging their way to Esty Lingerie HQ as I type – and the 2016 competition will be back to the usual schedule, launching this summer season. Subscribe to the newsletter if you want to hear when the theme is announced.

Now, back to 2015… this was the 5th annual lingerie design competition I’ve run, and the theme I picked out this time was ‘Modern Classics’ – a title open to interpretation by the entrants. Right after I’d picked out the winner, two runners up have been chosen by public vote from a shortlist of designs. In 3rd spot, and featured on the weblog these days, was 22-year old lingerie design student Betsan Evans with her 70s inspired but really of-the-moment lacy bralette and tanga.

betsan evans esty lingerie design competition

Firstly, congratulations on winning 3rd spot in my 2015 design competitors! What was your explanation behind getting into?

I love that Esty supports independent lingerie brands and designers and so I have constantly followed the company on Facebook. When I saw the competition I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to design and style some thing in my spare time, as this is a hobby of mine. I also loved the theme this year!

Your interpretation of the Modern Classic theme was inspired by a 1970s image, tell me more about that…

The image I chose as my inspiration for my lingerie set summed up the Studio 54, glam aspect of the 70s perfectly, and so I wanted to design and style anything that was just as vibrant and sexy. I wanted to combine this with the shapes that are at the moment on trend, for that reason incorporating the modern portion of the Modern day Classic theme.

Betsan Evans 1970s lingerie design inspiration

Are the 70s your favourite era, underwear wise? If not, which period has been your favourite so far?

I have often been a fan of 70s fashion as I really like the silhouettes and prints from that era. It was also a excellent era for lingerie as matching sets and colourful lingerie had been starting to turn into trendy.

As a final-year student at De Montfort, I’m positive this is far from the first lingerie set you have created. What goes into the design and style procedure, from initial inspiration via to the completed image?

I like to draw issues I see from day to day in order to inspire styles. I believe that the much more original the inspiration, the far more special the final style will be. I typically discover beauty in mundane objects we see every day and like to attempt to look at factors in a diverse light.

I studied textiles in college and so I have usually enjoyed experimenting with fabric manipulation to get tips for a final style. I will generally draw around a hundred various style ideas ahead of deciding on my favourite.

What sort of career are you hoping to get into when you graduate later this year? Any plans to launch your own line?

I would really like to perform in lingerie design but wouldn’t think about launching my personal line for a couple of years at least. I would be more than pleased to design for other brands and would adore to operate outside of the UK.

Betsan Evans lace knicker design

What is it that attracted you to the globe of lingerie particularly, rather than general style design?

At initial I believed fashion design and style was my passion but for some cause it just didn’t really feel proper. I was often designing garments that seemed to be influenced by lingerie and when I heard about the Contour Fashion course at De Montfort University I just knew it was some thing I wanted to pursue. I adore how excellent lingerie tends to make you feel even if no one can see it.

Ultimately, which are your best 3 favourite lingerie designers or brands and why?

My favourite lingerie brand is Loveday London. They style lovely leather lingerie with revolutionary strapping particulars on the backs of the bras. I also like Almeida as I consider they’re really distinctive and fashion-forward. Lastly, I have to mention Hopeless Lingerie as they design actually cool lingerie inspired by horror motion pictures.

Thank you to Betsan, and keep tuned for upcoming interviews with the 2nd and 1st spot winners! Be positive to let me know what you believe of Betsan’s ‘modern classic’ style too – did you vote for her?

Revealing the 2015 Lingerie Style Competition Winners!

Author: Estelle

If you’ve been following my brand for any length of time, you’ll know I run an annual lingerie style competitors. Launching a lingerie brand is expensive and incredibly time-consuming, even for a tiny independent label, so I launched this contest in 2011 as a way to give one person the likelihood to see their design and style put into production at no financial expense to them – from the first year, the winning design and style has often been created and sold as a restricted-edition set at Esty Lingerie. (You can see preceding year’s winning creations here).

2015 marked the 5th year I’ve run this competitors and it was lovely to see so many of you enter again – each year I obtain a lot more entries than the final, and I never ever fail to be amazed at the beautiful styles and spectacular illustration/presentation skills on show!

The 2015 theme was ‘Modern Classics’ and you can read the complete design and style brief right here. The winning design and style is often chosen by me, but as has been the custom for the past couple of years there was also a public voting stage to choose 2nd and 3rd location winners to scoop up some smaller prizes.

Now, enough of the competitors specifics – it’s time for the fascinating bit, time to reveal 2015’s winners!

In 3rd place… Betsan Evans

Betsan Evans lingerie design

Prize: £25 gift voucher + an interview on the weblog

Betsan’s design and style was inspired by the bright colours of the 1970s disco scene, but utilized on a soft lace bralet and high-reduce brief that look completely on-trend for 2016 also.

In 2nd place… Priyanka Rampal

priyanka

Prize: £50 present voucher + an interview on the weblog

Priyanka’s style, “Luscious Flamboyance”, took the showy fashions of the Georgian era and turned them into a extremely special lingerie set such as a pair of lacy knickers with sheer attached trousers. All the flamboyance of the inspiration, but a new and distinct silhouette for today’s buyer.

In 1st Place… Ishleen Singh

Ishleen

Prize: £100 gift voucher + a set for herself + an interview on the blog + this style made &amp sold!

And right here it is, 2015’s winner! It was, as usually, incredibly hard to narrow the entries down to just one winner, but Ishleen’s set really ticked all the boxes of the different judging criteria. Most importantly although, the theme is clear – it’s a enjoyable, contemporary take on a garment that we all know from a earlier era. If you are a fan of Ishleen’s style, you’ll be capable to get your hands on it in the not-too-distant future!

The 2015 competitors ran quite late in the year compared to usual, due to a lot of alterations taking place at Esty Lingerie by means of the initial half of the year, therefore why the winner is not getting announced until now in 2016. Even so issues will be back to typical for this year’s competitors, so for those who’d enjoy a chance to enter, maintain an eye out for the new theme getting announced in spring.

You’ll get to locate out far more about these 3 designs in the winners’ interviews, but in the meantime I’d really like to know what you feel of them? Did you vote for Ishleen’s ‘The Monroe’ to win?

My Top 10 Lingerie Purchases of 2015

Author: Estelle

As has become my tiny blog tradition, I’m finishing the year with a round-up of my really favourite purchases more than the previous 12 months. Aside from the corset, I put on everything on this list very frequently – regardless of whether it’s a basic bra set or a luxury a single, absolutely nothing says “great purchase” like anything you really want to put on week-in, week-out and which holds up properly to all that use as well.

Every little thing on this list I’ve purchased myself, but a unique shout-out to Cervin’s Boetie suspender belt (brand-gifted) and Lascivious’ Liana bra set (fiancé-gifted) which I’m truly satisfied with too.

Mimi Holliday Raspberry Ripple pink silk slip low res

10. Mimi Holliday Raspberry Ripple slip

Read my assessment

Initial up is this silk slip that I reviewed yesterday. I’ve lost count of how many instances I’ve worn it considering that I received it significantly less than two months ago – in fact, I’m wearing it appropriate now. It is properly-created and oh-so-comfortable – the only reason it is down at number 10 on my list is because I’ve given that purchased an additional silk slip that I like aesthetically a lot more.

Fogal Peony tights review

9. Fogal Peony tights

Read my overview

Words can’t express how much I adore these tights! I didn’t realise net tights could be so pretty and come in designs that weren’t just diamond-style fishnet. I wear these frequently to work, but they’d be best for a night out too.

I only added these to my basket due to the fact I didn’t want to pay £5 postage for just one pair of tights, and I’m so glad I got them – the high quality is basically outstanding and significantly better even than my Wolford net tights, a brand that is supposedly the crème de la crème of the hosiery world.

Ava Corsetry Audrey plunge overbust review 2

eight. Ava Corsetry Audrey overbust corset

Read my assessment

This handmade piece is by far the highest-top quality corset I’ve ever purchased, from the premium duchess satin to its incredible shaping skills. I just wish I’d opted for a style with a busk at the front instead simply because this requires me forever to get on and off, which is precisely why I hardly ever wear it and why it is down at number eight on this list.

Mimi Holliday Bisou Bisou bra set

7. Mimi Holliday Bisou Bisou shoulder bra set

One particular of my a lot more current purchases, I plan to evaluation this one quickly but suffice to say I’ve been actually impressed by it. Bisou Bisou is one of Mimi’s most iconic types and I sort of felt like it had been accomplished to death, released in a lot of colours over the seasons, but now that I’ve noticed it up close I do get the appeal. It is beautiful!

Vivi2Anna review

6. Vivi2Anna rose print bra set

Study my assessment

Although not the most fascinating or groundbreaking of designs, this bra set has nonetheless gotten as a lot put on as my luxury favourites since it is just so comfy and so sensible. With the bra’s smooth cups and the thong’s flat edges, it is wonderful for a smooth line beneath tight-fitting clothing, and its way prettier than most remedy-put on.

It was also a bargain at about £20 for a handmade set, and I’ve been so happy with how it has lasted that I’ve just placed another order with this designer.

Review of L'Agent by Agent Provocateur bra

five. L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Marisela bra set

Read my evaluation

Like the Vivi2Anna set above, this set gets worn at least after per fortnight since it’s a excellent, comfortable ‘basic’ that stays hidden under garments, but looks beautiful too. The match is also spot-on. I identified I was wearing it so typically that since writing my assessment, I’ve completed my set with a thong and suspender belt (the one particular pictured above is by yet another brand, Arabelle).

Fleur of England Signature bra set review

4. Fleur of England Signature bra set

Read my overview

The lace on this British-made bra set is just amazing – certainly check out the back of the knickers in my overview linked above if you haven’t seen it! It is a genuinely elegant, classic design and I’ve been wearing it non-stop with my basic black suspender belt from Cervin.

belle et bonbon emilia bra set review

three. Belle et BonBon Emilia bra set

Read my assessment

This bra set is not a excellent match – the knickers are a bit baggy and the bra has a flattening effect which I’m not a fan of – but I honestly don’t care due to the fact it’s such a lovely, gorgeous bra set! From the divine purple and gold lace, to the crossover straps, to the way suspender grips have been utilised for decoration, it’s just specifically my aesthetic. It is beautifully created as well and I appear forward to attempting a lot more Belle et BonBon in 2016!

Sapphire Bliss navy blue silk slip

two. Sapphire Bliss Audrey Kiss chemise

Another extremely recent obtain, I am hoping to create up a review of this towards the end of the week. As with the Mimi Holliday slip at the start off of this post, I’ve identified it so versatile that I’ve been wearing it all the time, day and night, and located it wonderfully comfortable.

The only explanation it’s considerably larger up on this list is due to the fact of its visual appeal – rich, navy silk and black eyelash lace combine for a look that’s decadent and oh-so-high-priced!

Pleasure State Couture Glimmer review

1. Pleasure State Glimmer bra set

My quite, absolute, mostest favourite lingerie buy of all? This divine bra set from Australian brand Pleasure State which I picked up in a sample sale. I knew as quickly as I started writing this weblog post that this piece would be at the best of the list simply because 10 months soon after getting it, my heart nevertheless beats a little more quickly each time I get it out of its box to wear.

The Swarovski crystal deals on this set – they are just sprinkled everywhere – are outstanding, and its one particular of those pieces that looks even a lot more incredible in genuine life because of the way these sparkle when they catch the light. This is the purpose I really like lingerie so considerably.

And now, I am off to pack for a tiny spa retreat in the Pyrénées. I anticipate I will not have any web exactly where I’m going, so I’ll catch up with you all in 2016 – until then, have a fantastic New Year!

What was your favourite lingerie acquire of all this year? Do you personal something on this list?

Agent Provocateur 2015 ‘Holiday Season’ Campaign

How cute is Agent Provocateur’s kitschy snow’n’ski-themed vacation campaign?! Shot by one of my fave UK photographers to function with, Liz Collins, and featuring model and media character Abbey Clancy, the pictures showcase the AP pieces (from across the present mainline, swim and Soiree collections) that I’m certain any of us would be pleased to obtain as a gifts. In reality, I enjoy that the leading 3 issues on my personal Christmas Wishlist- the ‘Robyn’ bra and Ouvert, ‘Sherrie’ playsuit and ‘Molly’ bra, short and suspender- are included here. 

Along with the campaigns that nail flawless, normal-setting luxury, ‘camp and cute,’ like this shoot, is when I feel Agent Provocateur is at their very best. Since personally, I think nothing at all goes greater with luxury lingerie than a good dose of entertaining. I will absolutely be packing some of these styles into my weekend bag when I head up to Tahoe in a handful of weeks… Thanks for the inspo AP!
