When asked why underthings?
"I am intensely drawn to design pieces which embellish even the most modest bodies. Playful, demure, and innocent winks of grandeur are a few of the themes which pull me in to the cutting table late at night.

Their inspirations include and certainly not limited to circus arts, vaudeville, parisian cancan, modern dance, burlesque, harmony, chaos, vintage, stage, theatre, cabaret, and sauntering swoons. Some say their sparkles have been here before the beginning of time.
