DMU’s three-year Contour Fashion course, established in 1947 to support the local cor-set industry, is the oldest degree-level inti-mate apparel course in the world. Its curricu¬lum includes lingerie, corsetry, loungewear, sportswear, swimwear, and shapewear.
An award was recently created to shine the spotlight on design and pattern making students from De Montfort University (DMU), UK. Students were tasked with designing a small lingerie collection that reflects the aesthetic of French brand Aubade. Students were required to both design and develop their collections with Lectra's product development solution, Modaris.
