Lingerie design competition hits the Runway


Friday, Sept. 15 — A new event in Lansing is giving aspiring clothing designers a chance to go toe-to-toe with other local designers.

Curvaceous Lingerie, Lansing Community College and the Runway are teaming up to present Greater Lansing’s first lingerie design competition: Project Boudoir Lansing.

Twenty local designers will be chosen by juried selection to showcase two lingerie designs, one traditionally sized and one plus sized. Competitors will then create their looks, choose their models and showcase them in a runway fashion show where four local judges will choose a winner.

“This is a first for Curvaceous Lingerie, and a first for Lansing,” said Lauren Long, owner of Curvaceous Lingerie. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to meet local designers and eventually help someone’s career by selling their garments. It’s a win for everyone.”

The winning designer of Project Boudoir Lansing will receive a professional photo shoot, free access to services at fashion incubator the Runway, product placement in future advertisements and an opportunity to sell their product line at Old Town’s Curvaceous Lingerie.

The Project Boudoir Lansing runway show will take place Nov. 19 at the Runway, located inside the newly renovated Knapp Building in downtown Lansing. Designer entries and sketches are due Oct. 1.
