Did you know that a woman called Ruth Wakefield invented Chocolate Chip cookies (major props), a woman called Patsy Sherman invented Scotchguard ™ (my sofa thanks you) and that surprise, surprise it was a woman called Mary Phelps Jacob who invented the bra? (major props in every sense).
I’m sitting on several madcap inventions (OK, two) that I mutter about on a daily basis so I am really excited to find out who is going to win this year’s Triumph Women in Making Campaign’s amazing £10,000 business bursary. The short list of entries has already been made and now it’s down to Triumph’s panel of inspiration makers, shoe guru Sophia Webster, designer Roksanda Ilincic, Nails Inc founder Thea Green, last year’s bursary winner LIzzie McQuade and Fenwick’s Lingerie buying Manager Georgina Coulter to decide on a winner.
Triumph’s team of Inspiration Makers. Give me those shoes.
The ‘Women in Making’ winner will be announced in June and not only will they receive the ten grand prize from Triumph, they get a year’s worth of mentoring from the makers panel & the chance to be showcased within Fenwick Bond St. Check out the shortlist here: triumph.com/womeninmaking
If like me you didn’t manage to submit your game changing business plan this time we will watch and learn and you can still head down to Maison Triumph, a ‘pop-up space’ in Seven Dials, London which is open to the public until June 2014. The space includes installations, events, inspirational talks and a series of maker workshops all of which feature the Triumph brand ambassadors. Mary Phelps Jacob would be proud.
