The February 2018 edition of Lingerie Insight is now available to read online, with lingerie by Magic BodyFashion gracing the cover.
From trend reports to show previews and exclusive interviews, we have a jam-packed issue for you.
The latest edition kicks off with a round-up of industry news, including the announcement that Rigby & Peller, the British retailer that supplied lingerie for the Queen for 57 years, has been stripped of its royal warrant.
Our news section also reveals details of the new AW18 Coco de Mer collection designed in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert museum and the announcement that Australian swimwear brand Seafolly has hired a new CEO.
Over the page, Chris Eve, director of UK distributor Patricia Eve, makes his predictions for the AW18 edition of INDX Intimate Apparel, taking place this weekend, and discusses his company’s goals for 2018.
Also in this issue, independent lingerie retailers voice their concerns over a lack of support there are receiving from their suppliers as they face tough trading conditions on the high street.
In this special report, they make a call for action and suggest ways in which brands can help ease the pressure.
Taking the interview hot seat this month is Debenhams head of lingerie buying and design Sharon Webb. She explains in detail how her team is playing a vital role in turning the ailing retailer’s fortunes around.
We also sit down with Diane Houston at her atelier in Mayfair, London to discuss her eponymous new loungewear collection.
Our cover story marks 25 years of Magic BodyFashion and its owners are aptly celebrating the occasion with all-things silver, plus a touch of velvet.
We chat to co-owner Linda Leestemaker, who explains her excitement for this special milestone and reveals how she and her business partner, Marc de Graaff, have turned the company into a total solutions brand since taking over the business in 2012.
Also this month, we tell you everything there is to know about the upcoming UK Lingerie Awards, which will take place in Solihull on February 19, the second night of INDX.
Over in our products & trends section, INVISTA, owner of the Lycra fibre brand, unveils its highly anticipated legwear trends report for AW18/19, and we preview the AW18 lingerie, swimwear, nightwear and hosiery collections that will be on display at INDX.
