Thea Green, Lizzie McQuade, Roksanda Ilincic, Georgina Coulter and Sophia Webster led the list of business women and fashion elite that joined the launch of the second season of ‘Women in Making’. The panel of Makers were quizzed about their experiences in setting up their own businesses providing inspiring nuggets of information for all the aspiring business women sipping champagne at 57/59 Monmouth St, Seven Dials, London.
‘Women in Making’ which debuted in Autumn/Winter 2013 is inspired by women celebrating their femininity, creativity, strength and sheer diversity. As part of the ‘Women in Making’ campaign Triumph will reach out to a number of creative influencers dubbed ‘Makers’ across a variety of creative disciplines in a celebration of true craftsmanship and expertise.
The Women in Making campaign is both emotive and empowering and continues to provide a voice and a platform as a champion of women in creative business. Women are invited to showcase their inspirational business idea via the triumph.com/womeninmaking website creating their own social profile to champion their creative nature via their inspirations, and their craft via examples of their work and proposed business plans.
The campaign will culminate in June with the ‘Women in Making’ winner being announced and awarded a £10,000 prize from Triumph alongside a year’s worth of mentoring from the makers panel & the chance to be stocked within Fenwick Bond St.

The annual London Design Festival came to a close yesterday after 9 days of bringing cutting edge design to the streets and venues of London.
One of the trends that caught our eye was the design work that took to the skies of London. As part of the celebrations seven designers took on the challenge to move their design work off the ground and into the skies of Seven Dials and Covent Garden and the results were pretty spectacular.
As you can see in the pictures below artists such as Vic Lee, Faye Toogood and Dominic Wilcox suspended everything from ladders to birdcages for the pleasure of passersby. Each piece is linked to the history of the area adding another dimension of creativity to what they did.
Check out some of the highlights below.
