Helena Christensen to let people see her bra and knickers

Helena Christensen is to let everyone see her own underwear.

The supermodel has worked on a lingerie collection for Triumph, consisting of three differently-themed ranges – Poetica, Ballerina, and Dahlia.

She told Vogue.co.uk: “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.

“There was a lot to learn. I even went to Hong Kong to talk to the seamstresses and see the samples.”

Christensen believes her years of modelling helped 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.”

Christensen’s lingerie hits the shops in January 2013.
