"Style, fashion, and makeup are all a form of self expression, without it, we are only just a shell. It’s our style and character that makes us, us." - Threnody in Velvet
What do you enjoy most about lingerie?
If you could describe your style in 3 words what would they be?
I would say sophisticated, dark & sexy. I think 3 words aren’t enough, I would like to also add timeless, and chameleonic, as life would be far too boring if I was looking the same everyday, and style, fashion, and makeup are all a form of self expression, without it, we are only just a shell. It’s our style and character that makes us, us.
If you could pick one piece from your edit, which one would you choose and why?
It would probably be the Anaise set, I love the mixture of pale nude (as suits my deadly pale skin tone!) with beautiful black lace and satin. I have to also add as bonus I really loved the bettie black latex mini beret and I can see myself wearing this often too!
How do you deal with the societal pressure to look a certain way?
What are your thoughts on representation of 40+ women in the lingerie world?
How do you want the lingerie world to develop in the next 5 years?
Do you feel that what you look for in lingerie has changed at all over the years?
What’s one piece of advice you live by?
If you make your hobby your job, you will work everyday of your life! Nothing ever comes easy and growing takes hard work, but also do find a balance because we are a limited time in this world and there’s so many things to experience outside of working. This is also advice for myself.
