June 2015: Covet shapewear collection’s first production arrives after years of testing, trial and errors, lack of sleep and social life. But it was all worth it to see the vision come to life!

August 2015: Queen of the Crop participated in its first Fashion Week as a sponsor and received great press reviews in Birmingham, West Midlands region and London.

October 2015: The first export of Covet shapewear was to Italy to retailers in Bari, Termoli and Flero, and received press recognition in the Chambers of Commerce.
