May’s student showcase winner from is a complex design, all green sequins and adjustable straps.

Artfully constructed yet with an air of seductive femininity still maintained, the design belongs to Hannah Catherine Thomas, a second year contour student at DeMontfort University. Impressively, she created the ‘Futuristic Infusion’ piece during her first year, and has since gone on to have her designs displayed at some of the World’s best known trade shows such as Interfiliere in Paris.

Hannah was also picked as the winner of the Charnos Shapewear competition and a finalist in the UK Triumph Inspiration Awards

Hannah said told us, “I wanted to stretch and challenge the creative process and use unusual materials. I was inspired by women’s desire to seek manipulations to their figures.”

Like many young designers, she would love to set up her own brand one day, and has already developed her own website.
