I’ve had so many highlights from 2017, but I think one of my absolute favorite moments was finally putting together my dream of a magazine-style lingerie editorial on TLA. While I’m excited whenever lingerie makes an appearance in a large or mainstream fashion publication, that excitement is often tinged by a little disappointment since one very often sees the same few brands photographed.
