Grace Eliana Sugiarto wins TIA 2010

28 April saw twelve fashion students showcasing their lingerie designs for this year’s Triumph Inspiration Awards. By interpreting the design theme of “Shape Sensation”, the students competed for the honour of representing Singapore at the Triumph Inspiration Awards Final held in London in September this year.

Grace Eliana Sugiarto, 22, from Raffles Design Institute was crowned as the winner, wowing the judges with her concept titled “Preserved Beauty”.

Grace about her piece: “I was deeply inspired by Pharaoh Hatshepsu, the first woman to rule Egypt as Pharaoh for more than 20 year; She brought much prosperity, wealth and peace in her time. Although she has lived thousands years ago, she would be rocking the lingerie in the other world as the bodysuit is inspired by the wrapping method of mummification using nude colored stockings instead of linen bandages.”
