The tight way to stocking success

It was a 'tight' final, but Bianca Miller and her idea for a hosiery company just missed out on a quarter-million pound investment from Sir Alan Sugar in this year's Apprentice.

Miss Miller went onto the show armed with her savvy business plan; a proposal to launch a range of opaque tights to match different skin tones for the cosmopolitan women of modern Britain.

Though she didn't get the prize investment, Bianca still plans on launching her new range of tights with success in mind.

She first dreamed up the idea when she was 18 with little choice in tights for her darker legs. She said that eight years ago there was little variety out there in terms of skin tone-matching hosiery.

She started to think this was a hole in the modern market that she could fill, helping fashion savvy women and making money in the process. She became even more determined to start a company making tights when she worked in the City and could not find any tights suitable for her skin tone at all.

Miss Miller often ended up wearing black tights for lack of any better option, but now all that is going to change. The soon-to-be fashion designer says that her friends cannot wait to be wearing Bianca Miller Tights and she doesn't intend to keep them waiting.
