Hiya! Thanks for stopping by :) I'm Sacha, a lingerie creator from Brussels in Belgium. I design, produce and promote every single piece of lingerie you'll find on my website myself. I also made and run the said website! If you want to know more about me, my work and why I created this page, continue reading!



MY STORY
I've learned to sew at the age 15 in Brussels, Belgium where I'm from. After an internship with a seamstress, I designed and made my first own pair of knickers at 19. The following year, I moved to London where I followed a few different short courses at the London College of Fashion (“Customised pattern cutting and fitting”, “Sewing: Professional finishing and fitting”, “Fashion History: The Evolution Of Style” and “Introduction to fashion brand management”). Two years and a lot of training later, in 2011, I felt confident enough to start selling my creations so I launched my first collection of knickers. Back then, I didn't live from it and was able to buy the lingerie supplies I needed to create only thanks to side jobs: I waited a lot of tables, worked as a sale assistant and used all the money left once my rent paid to invest in my dream job.



WHAT LINGERIE IS TO ME
Lingerie is much more than pretty undergarments to me, it's a way to feel free in a world that doesn't always want you to and while I know the sexual aspect of lingerie is what it is usual known for (I think it can definitely be an enjoyable side of it!), I do believe everyone is a multifaceted being and that lingerie is a way to express yourself.

That's why my designs come in different shapes and forms, to match different tastes and styles. And sometimes they have been inspired by a certain nostalgia for the past, while sometimes they are much more modern, sometimes they are playful, and sometimes more concerned about fitting in our everyday lives.

MY PHILOSOPHY
To me, clothes and, by extension, lingerie can have much more potential than what we usually allow them to have and I really hate how they tend to be seen as super replaceable. I find it super sad that most of the time, they are produced to create a trend (or respond to one) which will start dying as soon as it is born. Fast fashion giants throw us in new currents every 3 weeks or so, pushing us to see and treat textile goods as unimportant and extremely replaceable, often leading us to eventually dispose of them ages before they should actually be thrown away.
I’m diligently trying to make things differently through my collections by proposing an alternative not only by designing pieces that you can incorporate into your own style(s) rather than pushing you to follow a momentary trend, and by producing almost exclusively to order since forever which not only allow me to occasionally customise my designs to better meet your expectations but also definitely helps me to reduce waste.



WHY PATREON?
Patreon has helped me to always have the final funds to create the ton of things I always have in mind and to keep growing as a maker. Having to think about profitability all the time can be quite damaging to creativity so not always having to focus solely on "what sells" do help feeling more and more creative each month.
This platform is really important for me considering the way mainstream social media has evolved: making it through the algorithms, being shadow banned, having my content deleted or like it already happened on Facebook, simply being banned. But I do have faith that Patreon will help me to keep growing in an unfettered manner.

WHAT YOU'LL GET FOR YOUR PLEDGE
To thank you for investing in my future creations, I've cooked you a lot of different rewards depending on how much you seem fit to pledge and that I think you'll love if you love the lingerie I create or simply want to discover it! From exclusive previews of my collections, exclusive content in general and so on to actual lingerie creations shipped to you every month, there is something for every taste!
Also, I see this Patreon thing as a new layer to my adventure in the lingerie world and as an experiment I undergo in public so I want to stay open to change and if there are new features, new rewards, or anything you think would be amazing for me to embrace, feel free to let me know! I really want you to feel like you're getting something back for your investment so rewards may indeed be updated from time to time and as a patron, you'll definitely be part of that discussion!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to have visited this page and for taking the time to read me! It's so nice to have you around <3
