 Dearest reader, lingerie enthusiast,

As I am pleased to offer what I consider the best lingerie has to offer this side of the galaxy, I do feel the obligation to justify who I am to make such a statement. So here it is, my story:
    I am a Montreal born woman. I was raised in a great and large french Canadian family and went on to study fashion at Lasalle College. After a three year degree specialising in menswear fashion I went on to work in the Montreal fashion industry. For many reasons, Montreal and I at that point were incompatible and I decided to take a one-way plane ticket to London, UK, the country of Jane Austen and Mr. Darcy. Surprise, surprise, men in England are not all Mr. Darcys and well, I'll skip all the details, it was a crash course in life which, I am pleased to say I passed with distinction. 

 

Enough about the rain, now the sunshine. I managed to get apprenticeships in two of the most prestigious tailoring houses in the world, Gieves & Hawkes and Huntsman. There I learnt from the absolute best about garment construction, workmanship, cloth and how to provide premium service to the richest and most powerful men of this world. (not to brag but I was taught tailoring from Lady Di’s personal tailor who was also working on a tailcoat for Daphne Guiness). Whilst getting my hands covered in cashmere and diamond cloth I took classes at the London College of Fashion in Lingerie and corsetry. Coincidently I was living with a top sales person in contemporary lingerie at the prestigious Selfridges. I must give her credit for introducing me to most of the brands I am now offering you.

Finally, I have come on a crusade back to motherland and offer my dearest compatriots what I had the pleasure of discovering the other side of the Atlantic. Not only do I want to offer brands I believe in, but I wish to make all woman discover these brands the way I did, in a nice comfortable environment with a trusted friend to confide in and most importantly, to have fun!

Hopefully this has given you a better idea of who I am, and keep on reading the blogs, do not hesitate to ask any question. It will be my greatest pleasure to answer them to the best of my knowledge. In hopes of seeing or meeting you soon in a dinner party or private consultation.
Love,
Workingirl
