Meet Tina Wilson! This was such a fun podcast for me because like myself, Tina is a new contributor at Lingerie Briefs. Tina has a bi-monthly column called “Fashion Illustrations” that you can find in the in The Gallery section on Lingerie Briefs.
Tina is currently a co-founder and creative director of Marronage – a wearable and non wearable brand launching early 2017 that will take you on a journey far from unfulfillment and into a world of inspiration, beauty and community. Tina’s impressive career history will have you captivated, star-struck and eager to hear her journey throughout this podcast. Some of her past experiences include designing for Christian Dior lingerie and being personally selected by Calvin Klein as Head Designer to work on the launch of Calvin Klein Underwear (epic! – right?)
Tina has also worked with Josie Natori and as design director with Donna Karan (under the licensee Wacoal America) for many years. In this time, Tina worked on design for Donna Karan Intimates and also created “Control Freak” – a new concept of shapewear. If that’s not enough name dropping – Tina further worked at the largest intimate apparel company Komar/Carole Hochman designing many of their intimate brands such as Ralph Lauren, On Gossamer, Ellen Tracey, Donna Karan, Betsey Johnson, Oscar de la Renta!, and Lucky brand…., I meannnnn!
Listen to Tina talk about working with these design icons, some behind the scenes stories, advice for aspiring designers, and what’s on the horizon for Marronage. Enjoy!
