She said: "My dad helps me create the carbon babydoll lingerie fibre moulds, which I then line with soft velvet. They are then lacquered to create a high shine.
"Along with all the other students, I was encouraged to create something new and 'out there' for my project.
"This is where I first designed my carbon fibre body and then the idea has just grown.
"It took me four months to complete my collection and the longest time was spent making the carbon fibre moulds and my lingerie."

Selina added: "I love working with this material, because it can be formed so exactly to the feminine contours in a way that produces a very dominant image.
"My new collection will still feature my signature carbon fibre and lingerie pieces.
"But I will be adding new lingerie pieces such as soft bras, bodices and harnesses, as well as carbon fibre accessories."
