I have always loved Lingerie. Since I was a little girl I always dreamed of growing up and all the pretty lacy things I would get to wear. As I grew up and started modeling, naturally, I gravitated towards posing in lingerie, and lingerie soon became part of my brand, and what I was known for. I love showing off the pieces that I love, from small independent brands, to bigger wholesalers and online retailers. I love finding designs and brands that are size inclusive and meant to fit all body types...after all, EVERYONE deserves to feel sexy no matter what their size or shape. As I explored the online lingerie market further, I decided that I really would love to create and design my own line. I had so many ideas spinning around in my head of disigns I would love to see myself, and also, that I knew others would love as well. Enter Impish Lee
.I was introduced to Impish Lee when they first reached out to me via email. I was first of all intrigued as they are a small, female owned and operated business (my favorite kind of business to support!). Impish Lee was started by sisters Noelle and Kali, on Etsy, and their company has evolved from a small handmade boutique lingerie line into a fully customizable intimate apparel brand.
"At Impish Lee, we believe your underpinnings should be made specifically for you with quality materials and construction. Our mission is to give women the ability to design intimate apparel that reflects their individuality.
We focus on providing luxurious fabrics, trims, and finishes, as well as ensuring that we offer you a perfect fit. With the flexibility of our design tool, we strive to make the process not only convenient, but exciting as well, with over 27 trillion unique possibilities.
Our company is committed to creating a positive impact in all aspects of our business. Making a conscious decision to keep the manufacturing of our product in-house in New York, Impish Lee supports the US economy and ethical labor practices. Our business model also reflects our attention to minimize waste and excess, by only creating product that is already purchased."
Not only that, but I LOVED that the lingerie that is made in a LARGE range of sizes, meaning they truly are a size inclusive brand. Everything is available in sizes 0-30, and Bra cups A-J. Also, because of Impish Lee's unique manufacturing process, every order is made to order and to measure. This means that when you order, you will provide your exact measurements, which means all your pieces will fit you PERFECTLY, like they were made specifically for you...because they were!
I proposed the idea of a collaborative collection to Noelle and Kali, and to my surprise and delight, they were thrilled with the idea (just goes to show, that if you never ask, the answer will always be no. So just GO for it and ASK!) We signed the contract, got designing, and soon, I was booking a flight to New York to shoot these images. When designing my collection, I wanted to include some features that really speak to me, and who I am. I made sure to use bright, jewel tone colours (my favorites), amazing prints (I'm a sucker for a great print), fabulous, soft fabrics and materials, unique details, and a variety of different cuts and shapes to flatter every figure and style. I just adore this collection and I hope you do too. Huge thank you for all the love and support, and to Impish Lee for making this dream of mine a reality. It truly is a dream come true to be able to share this with you.
