[New] How Do Lingerie Designers Create Their Prints?: An Interview with Fleur of England

One of the lingerie brands I’ve been most impressed with season after season is Fleur of England. I am constantly surprised this luxury label isn’t more popular; they deserve to be in all the major flagship stores like Barney’s and Bergdorf’s and Harrod’s. Not only are their raw materials exquisite (the silk feels liquid against your skin), they also come up with 100% unique, completely in-house designed prints season after season. I know that may not sound very impressive to some of you, but it’s a big deal. The average lingerie brand chooses a print from a selection…which is difficult in its own right, especially when your choices number into the dozens, but still nothing like creating your own prints wholecloth.

After this last lingerie market, I asked Fleur of England if they’d be willing to do an interview with me about the print and pattern process. I’m wanting to do more articles about lingerie manufacturing and the business behind the intimate apparel industry this year, and pieces like this are exactly what I have in mind.
