Trainee designer Charlotte Bryan, 24, at David Nieper, a manufacturer of ladies’ lingerie for the luxury market, has been named as one of the 30 young rising stars of the manufacturing world by Business Minister Mark Prisk.
The Make it in Great Britain ’30 Under 30’ campaign selects young talent from all segments of the manufacturing industry, picked by a panel of expert judges.
Charlotte, a Fashion Studies graduate from the University of Lincoln, was selected for being a true high-flyer, standing out from her peers and demonstrating passion, enthusiasm and ambition in her role. She joined David Nieper straight from university after winning a paid internship at the fashion house and has been employed full-time ever since. Based in Alfreton in Derbyshire, David Nieper designs and manufacturers all its women’s clothing and lingerie in the UK.
Charlotte will now go on to act as an ambassador for the Make it in Great Britain campaign, which aims to challenge outdated opinions and transform the image of modern manufacturing. She will have a special role in engaging with other young people, to ensure that the next generation is aware of the great jobs and careers in the industry.
