I believe in innerwear becomes outerwear
When you see the lingerie trends throughout the years, you can see a timeline running parallel to the position of females in the Western society. Lingerie has always had an important role in the feminism waves. Around the first feminism wave, women were wearing tight corsets, forced into an imposed silhouette. The second wave was about breaking loose, freedom and independency. Women demanded these rights and used the bra as a symbol in this wave. Bras were pulled off, even burned! Now, we are in the middle of the third wave and lingerie is used again as a symbol, with a bigger role than ever before. Sexiness is completely aloud, being proud on your body and show it is your own choice. Being a feminist and being and looking feminine goes hand in hand.
Innerwear becomes outerwear
Celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Dita von Teese and Sarah Jessica Parker wear my lingerie designs regularly. They embody the innerwear becomes outerwear trend; strong independent women who showing their feminity with dare and proud.
Among bloggers, this trend is getting more and more popular. Such a social progress, these young fashion icons who are showing their self-confidence.
I spotted 3 bloggers in my collection, looking sexy, sensual and conscious of their selves. Get inspired by these great examples of innerwear becomes outerwear.

Embrace your dark side – get inspired for Halloween
Imagine if there were a night where it would be socially acceptable to indulge your deepest darkest dreams. An annual opportunity for women to dress like their sexual fantasies – be it a blood-thirsty vampire or a flirtatious nun – without getting ‘slut shamed’. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well there is a night just like that, and it happens to be one of my favorite moments of the year: Halloween.
