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 manage the said website myself! If you want to know more about me, my work and why I created this page, continue reading!



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 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. 



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, sometimes they have been inspired by a certain nostalgia for the past and sometimes they are much more modern, sometimes they are playful, and sometimes more concerned about fitting in our everyday lives.

Also, I proudly make every big and little steps behind Sacha Kimmes Lingerie myself because I want to propose pieces as precious and exclusive as the person who will wear them. Another reason why I decided to make the lingerie to order myself is that I don't want to add to the already huge amount of fast fashion items produced every year.

WHY PATREON?

For the amazing feeling of not always having to focus solely on what's actually making money and feeling more and more creative each month. Having to think about profitability all the time can be quite damaging to creativity and since I'm always working my ass off even through quiet times, always looking for ideas to grow and improve myself and my work (I usually work minimum 60 hours a week, more if needed, but I only get actually paid when I sell pieces of lingerie), Patreon helps me to always have the final funds to create the ton of things I want to create in mind and to keep growing as a maker.

Your financial support means that I'll be able to keep buying supplies to create lingerie, have more models and photographers to show my work in different lights and empower more and more people to feel confident in their bodies.

Your support is particularly appreciated considering the way mainstream social media has evolved, has been more than complicated: making it through the algorithms (just as an example I'm VERY lucky when 10% of my followers are just shown one of my posts on Instagram), 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
