Helena Christensen - Helena Christensen creates lingerie range
Helena Christensen is delighted to have created her debut lingerie collection for Triumph.
Helena Christensen was ''fascinated'' by the work it took to create her debut lingerie line.
The supermodel has worked on a luxury collection for Triumph consisting of three differently-themed ranges - Poetica, Ballerina, and Dahlia - and was thrilled to be hands-on in the creative process.
She told Vogue.co.uk: ''I was already their campaign girl, but Triumph suggested evolving the partnership and collaborating together.
''It was such a great opportunity to work with such a traditional, established company and have them support me in making my own line.
''I designed it all myself, but obviously had a team working with me to explain all the technical aspects - we put together mood boards, sketches, fabrics, just anything that I felt inspired by.
''It was fascinating to sit with experienced designers and see the background of the construction. There was a lot to learn - I even went to Hong Kong to talk to the seamstresses and see the samples, I was really involved.''
Helena believes her years of modelling experience helped a lot with her work on the range.
She added: ''I've been in the business for so many years as a model, and you're constantly surrounded by creative and inspiring people - it's a mind-blowing business to be in.
''But you absorb all that inspiration, and you keep it inside - it really was a very educational time.''
The Helena Christensen for Triumph lingerie collection launches in-store and online in January 2013.
