Triumph chooses Autumn/Winter 2013 to embark on its most empowering campaign yet. Inspired by women, Triumph, as part of their ‘Supporting Women in Making’ campaign, have reached out to a number of ‘Women in Making’ (dubbed ‘Makers’) across a variety of creative disciplines in a celebration of true craftsmanship and expertise.
This campaign will see Triumph showcasing a series of fellow makers as ambassadors for the season, each member representing their unique craft and offering a personal insight into how they got to where they are today, as well as acting as mentors in a series of consumer activities at the Maison Triumph in 7 Dials from September 2013 – January 2014. The space will include installations, events, inspirational talks and a series of maker workshops with the brand ambassadors, who will encourage and judge submissions to the ‘Supporting Women in Making’ competition, one of whom will win a £10,000 Triumph bursary. The Makers are:
- Paloma Faith – known for her creative interest in all aspects from songwriting to filmography, Paloma brings creative energy to the panel, showcasing how diversity and creativity can come together to create something wonderful and also offering her own insights into how to build yourself into a credible brand.
- Gizzi Erskine – Chef and food writer who knows more than a thing or two about making a career change, going from body piercing to culinary whizz, food author, stylist and columnist. Gizzi is a champion of new culinary talent through her television work with Cook Yourself Thin and will provide an authentic voice on how making a change and being brave enough to make the leap can really pay off.
- Roksanda Ilincic – the campaign’s ‘fashion insider’ whose own ethos represents a femininity and strength of character evident in her own personal style, as well as her hugely successful catwalk creations joins as the Maker’s next member. As a designer Roksanda brings a level of craftsmanship and tailoring to the panel and a unique perspective having built a business as well as a brand.
- Grace Woodward – Grace brings a wealth of industry insider experience and flair to the panel, offering insights from her multifarious career in image making, fashion marketing and broadcast. With a considerable experience in championing new talent, Grace brings a breadth of unique insights into how to transcend the realms and remit of your normal career path, finding a way to successfully make your dreams a reality.
