GO GETTER Lauren Taylor hopes she is sewing the seeds of success by setting up her own business hand-making lingerie.

At just 22-year-old the former Royal Wootton Bassett Academy student has already started selling her work online and is busy working on orders for new customers a matter of weeks after launching Lauren Jessica Lingerie.

But although she is raring to go she hasn’t yet given up her day job as a retail assistant at Miss Selfridge in the town centre.

Jessica, who studied fashion at university in Plymouth, graduated last year, then went on a course in London and decided to specialise in undergarments.

“I always loved going shopping for underwear,” she said.

“I just love how it starts off as just a lot of fabric and you can make it into something quite delicate and pretty.

"It is not like tops or dresses. It is something more personal.”

Then, while she was working at the Triumph store in the Designer Outlet Village she started creating her first range, making all the patterns, finding the fabrics she wanted, cutting and stitching and then having them photographed for her website.

She said her first sale was a big moment because it confirmed that other people thought her work was attractive.

Working from a studio set up in the conservatory of her parents’ home in Ramleaze, she stitches lacy sets, nightwear and leotards.

And unlike a lot of designers she refuses to put size labels inside the finished articles.

“I want people to be comfortable but also make them feel beautiful,” she explained.

On her website she tells customers her designs are “sophisticated and always have elegance and comfort in mind.”

She also describes them being “as cosy as they are sexy.”

Lauren’s creative spirit took hold when she was a pupil at the academy where she studied A-level art and textiles and she has stayed in touch with some of the teachers who encouraged her

“A lot of them know how I’m getting on because they are really supportive,” she said.

Although it is still very early days, she is already noticing which designs are hottest with customers – so far the plunge top leotard is the top seller.

“I’m surprised - I sell quite a lot of them,” she said.

She admitted it was tough setting up her own business.

“At the moment I don’t make enough to pay any rent,” she said.

But she is concentrating on attracting more customers and is already on social media, where she is rapidly gaining a following.
