“I’ve been designing for over twenty years, have worked for UK high streets, launched my own brand (in bigger cups) overseas and into high street stores. I have also been sponsored to work abroad designing. I believe lingerie should not only look beautiful but have function, and I like to teach all the technical aspects of lingerie design for you to understand.”
And it’s not only my voice you hear in this book, I have included interviews from professionals in their area of expertise.
This book is broken down into ten chapters with exercises that you can complete throughout the book so you have a clear understanding what you need to do for your lingerie designs and brand.
