First stitch: Karolina Laskowska

She may still be in her second year studying Contour Fashion at De Montfort University, but Karolina Laskowska’s lingerie design’s are already in demand – so much so that Laskowska has created an online shop, born from the multiple requests she would get to buy her lingerie.

Creating both ready-to-wear and boutique pieces, Laskowska’s current collection has been heavily inspired by bondage – think strong lines featuring black elastic strapping and gold-plated hardware, though still extremely feminine in their aesthetic. Exploring the underwear-as-outerwear trend, Laskowska explains that her designs can also be worn on top of clothes, giving the lingerie a multi-purpose edge.

All of the designs on the website are made to order, with Laskowska specialising in bespoke and customised pieces for customers.
