Confessions from the L.A. Textile Show

Greetings from London!
Recently, I posted on The Lingerie Post about my experience at the L.A. Textile Show. Feel free to read about it below.

I confess, it was my virgin trip to the Los Angeles Textile Show. What an experience! I went through over a hundred booths seeking those “it” pieces of fabric that I had designed my Spring ‘09 Eve’s Apples lingerie line around.

I can’t deny it, I adored the French lace. If French lace is a sin, then I don’t want redemption. Unfortunately, with the U.S. economy being so fragile and my greatest attempt at staying away from the higher end pieces, my lovely lace was still priced at over $90 per meter…Time to reconsider my line.

After three days of silk, satin, and lace, two Project Runway alumni sightings and one caffine infused drink every hour, I focused on looking for inspiration pieces. Fortunately, that is just what I found. Time and sleep solved the sensory overload from last week and a few pieces have stuck with me that inspired an entirely new line.

The big hit of the show was all of the new eco-fabrics in
bamboo, hemp, and recycled materials. (The image above is hemp silk)...

Have a smashing day and always Celebrate Your Inner Eve, my dear Lingeristas!
