Famous people are either (1) striving for fresh design ideas or simply (2) believe they can sell anything as long as it has their ‘fame’ label on it!
The latest example to date is Dita Von Teese! The 41 year-old entertainer has made a name for herself on the burlesque scene, performing around the world and taking the old-school glamour to a new height of popularity and appreciation. But do you know that Dita’s first workplace was in a lingerie boutique? Her passion for undergarments (corsets, lace and flirty items) pushed her further into the industry when she launched her own lingerie range with Wonderbra.
However, being the perfectionist and visionary she is, Dita went on to create her own clothing label which, of course, includes underwear. The name, ‘Von Follies’, is now associated with a Maternity Lingerie line in collaboration with Destination Maternity (Elle MacPherson also designed for the brand).
Nursing Bras looking lovely and feminine from $39 and postpartum shapers from $30 are available in a limited collection that reminds women everywhere that being a mother and being a woman is complimentary and yes, you can be both even if you’re nursing your wee ones (seriously, regardless of being natural and good for the body, those white cotton nursing bras are as feminine as granny’s culottes!)
Regardless, though: mothers are usually very sensitive about their new quality and nursing tends to get that motherhood feeling to its highest heights. Why would new mothers, in their nursing hormone frenzy, look towards Dita Von Teese who is … well, a lot of things, but not a mother?
