A notion about the similarity between a flower bud and a pregnant woman has helped Phan Thi Cam Tu win the Vietnam leg of the Triumph Inspiration Award 2010 for lingerie design.

Tu, 21, student of HCMC City "˜s Architecture University, defeated 625 contestants to win the VND25 million (US$1,300) contest and will represent Vietnam in the international final in London this September.

Tu said the woman's body was a Creator's masterpiece with perfects curves, especially when she is pregnant.

Besides the strong red, black and white colors, Tu's collection Hoai thai (Gestation) enhanced its attractiveness with a three-petal flower bud that could close and open at the belly. A Triumph International Vietnam representative said Tu's creative and meaningful designs were totally in harmony with the contest's theme, "Shape sensation."

This is the third time that the contest has been organized to identify promising talents worldwide.
