This year, Nearer The Moon got involved with something we eyed up with envy from the sidelines last year... Lingerie Secret Santa!
Organised by Karolina Laskowska and Angela Friedman, the lingerie secret santa draws out us indie designers who have been working hard since at least July (usually longer!) on our Christmas collections and treats us all to the thing we love most - creative freedom to design something or select something for a fellow lingerie lover!
It's also a great way for us to spread the word about ourselves and other independent brands whilst creating original content to share with you all!
Without giving too much away, we were sent our recipient's preferences and sizes and got to work on something super special that we hope she loves! Here's some sneak peaks of the set as we know all the other designers are watching out for the Lingerie Secret Santa posts and we don't want to spoil their surprise when they realise the package is from Nearer The Moon.
We took the pattern for our Quarter Cup Bra and used some gorgeous embroidered and sequinned tulle in lots of different ways to give a retro look. The wings are made from stretch polka dot mesh. As always, the bra is finished with a silky big bow in the centre.
The cradle was made from non sequinned parts of the fabric to ensure comfort.
The full briefs also only used non-sequinned panels so they are easier to care for and have a stretch mesh back for comfort. These were a new shape for us as the recipient doesn't like thongs or high waisted so we thought a vintage style full brief would work well here.
We finished the set with a matching retro look four strap suspender belt from our Rosie Suspender Belt pattern with wide straps. Using the most ornate part of the fabric for the centre non stretch panel and the spotted mesh for the other parts.
All wrapped and ready to go, we're hoping our parcel arrives with our recipient next week!
Here are all the other brands taking part, have a look through their sites and see if you can work out where our secret santa gift is headed to...
