One of the loveliest things about being in the lingerie industry is the incredible network of fellow indie designers around me: fabulously talented and driven women (some of whom can be, on occasion, terrible influences when it comes to my lace addiction).  The fashion world can be a competitive and lonely place to work in, so it’s extra lovely to be part of something like the Lovebomb! The Lovebomb is an (usually) annual campaign, where a bunch of brands get together to shout about each others’ glorious designs and to generally share the love. This year we have a rather excellent superhero theme – can you guess the 1960s TV show that provided inspiration for the shoot..?

Each brand gets their own dedicated day, and because I’m a little late to the blogging party, I’m talking about two today!

Yesterday was all about Playful Promises, a fellow London-based brand who have frankly been doing incredible things of late.  Their designs are gorgeous and they have one of the widest size ranges of any indie brand.  Personally, I’m currently Tbeing blown away by the fact that they’ve actually successfully developed and manufactured an overwire bra: as a vintage lingerie obsessive, to me it’s the holy grail of bras (suffice to say that no one manufactures the relevant components anymore, and there’s quite a few technical difficulties involved in both developing and sewing it).  Either way, you should all go and ogle their wondrous creations (and especially that overwire). Plus, for the next few days, you can get 30% off in their online shop with the code ‘BRB30OFF’!

Today is my Lovebomb day, and I will admit that I’m not the best at blowing my own trumpet, so instead I’ll tell you the following:
Kiss Me Deadly wrote a post about my brand that made me snort with laughter for a variety of reasons, and of course explains my designs a lot better than I ever could.
– You can get 25% off everything in my online shop until 12th March with the code ‘lovebomb2017’
– The ridiculous cape creation that you can spot in the Lovebomb photoshoot above made me angry and throw things, because I am not very good at sewing Big Things (bras are much easier).

And now on that note, I’m going back to wrangle some corsets. I have some very shiny new creations in the pipeline and I’m rather looking forward to finally sharing them with you…
