With cupboards full of ceramics, plenty of cushions and enough jewellery to weigh you down, lingerie and nightwear often get overlooked on the handmade circuit. That is why it is so fabulous to see lingerie highlighted in the 2016 Etsy UK Awards, which celebrate the best of creativity in the UK and Ireland.
Independent lingerie label StephieAnn has been shortlisted for this year’s Awards and Creative Director Stephie Woolven invites members of the industry to participate by voting online. “At exhibitions I’m often put down by the organisers but on the day every customer comments on how refreshing it is to see silk knickers and chemises,” she adds.
Etsy Awards entrants have the chance to win up to £10,000 cash prize, product showcase at Tent London during London Design Festival, business support from The Design Trust, retail opportunities with John Lewis and more.
