Whew, it’s been a long, challenging journey to get to here! After finally breaking free from the corporate fashion world and starting my own business a year ago, I’m finally on a path that excites and inspires me! It wasn’t easy. There were sleepless nights, multiple sacrifices, and tons of hard work, but this November marks the first anniversary of WonderLust Lingerie. I’m reflecting back on my journey to reevaluate what […]

It goes without saying that independent designers face more challenges in the lingerie industry than the brands with massive corporations behind them. Some of these challenges will appear obvious even to people with no interest in lingerie (be that a matter of funding or public visibility). This series aims to peel back the curtains on some of the more hidden sides of the industry: this week I’m looking at why […]
