Cabbage Can Be Sexy Too

Tokyo fashion design student Sachino Kurozu must have appreciated vegetables as a child. Her lingerie design — meant to represent the “blooming beauty” of women — is inspired by leafy cabbage. This cabbage theme must have motivated the judges too because it was picked as this year’s winner at the Tokyo lingerie competition organized by Triumph. Kurozu will now get the chance to show her designs at the world competition in Milan this September. The winner receives a cash prize and the opportunity to sell their design as a commercial underwear set. A Japanese designer won last year, so we’ll see if Kurozu’s designs will bud into that kind of luck.
