Why lingerie? What inspired you to become a lingerie buyer, and then make the transition to a designer?
GL: "It was a total accident! When I started my career I was put onto the lingerie department not through my own choice. At first, I was hesitant as I wasn’t a lingerie fanatic at all at that point, but I fell in love with lingerie immediately and have never looked back. In fact, I did spend some time as a blouses and dresses buyer, but didn’t enjoy it half as much as when I was buying lingerie. My job as a buyer included a lot of product development, and even some design, so I learnt on the job."
What are some of the fit considerations you make to ensure your lingerie is comfortable?
GL: "I think the most important thing is the fabrics you choose – they need to be malleable and soft. Anything too stiff, thick or scratchy won’t feel good."
