King's alumni aim to boost lingerie market with new business.

From bar to business - two former students have founded Attollo, an everyday luxury lingerie company.

Former Geography students Alice and Fleurette were sharing grievances at the lack of stylish bras for D+ cup sizes at the student bar in 2013, when they saw an opportunity for innovation.

The pair took their idea to the 'Lion's Den Challenge' run by King’s Entrepreneurship Institute, winning the award for 'Best Pitch' and laying the foundations for their future success.

None of this would have been possible without the support from King’s– Alice and Fleurette, founders of Attollo

The pair said: "Attollo means ‘I lift up, I raise, I excite,’ and was everything we wanted our bras to do that current bras don’t."

Three years on, Attollo has continued to grow, and recently began manufacturing with their European suppliers. Their products have been showcased in Vogue, and appeared in the Valentine's edition of GQ.

Alice and Fleurette added: " ‘None of this would have been possible without the support from King’s. We are in touch with the Entrepreneurship Institute regularly. Our first investors were found through King’s events, much of our press has derived from King’s and we couldn’t be more appreciative of the support we have received over the years."
