Bespoke Lingerie is the Staple of 2018

Lingerie and I go way back. The first time I tried the decadent lace was at the age of two. Digging through my mom’s burlesque costumes from the 80’s sparked my love of fashion. Β She kept some of her favorites from her dance wardrobe, and those pieces became my dress-up go-tos.

Now at the age of 20, I am collaborating with a bespoke lingerie brand that is rooted in lingerie’s history, the current zeitgeist, and women’s confidence. I introduce Madalyn Joy Designs.
