In the spirit of Fashion Revolution I would like to answer the questions
‘Who made your lingerie ?’
After more than two years of sewing each piece myself, I have finally found an atelier who can make my collection with the same amount of care as I do myself. To make the transition easier (letting go is hard), I have started by working together with the seemstresses to co-create every piece.
Since the atelier is in Belgium (check!) en is very small (only three people work there), it was easy to be present each day of production and assist in every step. Like every new relationship, it takes a lot of energy in the beginning, but in the end it was worth it. For the first time since starting my brand I will have stock that can last longer than a week!
What does it mean to produce in Belgium? The prices are high, the options are limited, but the quality is exceptional. I enjoyed working together with them, being able to learn, but also to show them my own methods.
So I can only say, thank you Carine & Crystelle for being my helping hands!
