Discover Your Inner Goddess

by TINA WILSON

Epona - Discover Your Inner Goddess illustration by Tina Wilson

Did you know that you had a goddess within you, perhaps more than one, I didn’t? Not until I attended a fashion and lifestyle seminar given by Trend Union and the ingenious soul that is Li Edelkoort. She spoke of Goddesses; a curated list of powerful and uncompromising women. She spoke of their origins, character, attributes, and their faults. It was inspired, engaging, beautiful, and informative and it gave me the subject of this blog, so I take absolutely no credit for assembling the list of these miraculous creatures, that goes to Li.

After hearing her speak of Nike, Artemis, Persephone, Oshun and others, I tried to imagine what they would wear, beneath or instead of their traditional tunics, armor and … Read more

Fashion Illustrations by Tina Wilson for Halloween: Alexander Mcqueen on Lingerie Briefs

Halloween. When I came to the decision to dedicate this blog to Halloween I had no idea what the actual subject would be.  It stressed me out for a few days, I only knew I wanted it to be about corsets.  Back when I used to dress up for Halloween, it always involved a corset or bustier.  Nurse with corset, witch wearing corset, genie with corset, the list is long.

One night shortly before the blog deadline I was sitting on my sofa looking for inspiration, sifting thru my coffee table books on Basquiat, the 80’s NYC club Area, Schiaparelli, and Vionnet and then it hit me, and it hit me hard.  McQueen, Alexander McQueen.

Being A Good Sport Bra

By TINA WILSON

Chantelle Sports Bra illustrated by Tina Wilson on Lingerie Briefs

We all have to admit the retail world is topsy turvy and what should be… isn’t. Almost nothing surprises us anymore.  Which leads me to my current observation about sport bras.  Technically they are meant to be worn while being “sporty” and the attention they are being given would have me conclude that there are millions of sporty women buying these bras, but I have a slightly different take on it.  I believe many of these bras are purchased with the best of intentions, there are millions of women who aspire to be more active and that’s a good thing, I am one of those women, but I am not as active as I would like to be and when I buy … Read more

Simone Perele illustrated by Tina Wilson on Lingerie Briefs from Curvexpo

A trio of floating butterflies on each strap…
A statement of profanity worn with pride…
Bits of tulle and lace, raw and exposed and dripping from the frame of the bras…
Multicolored paillettes dangling from a bomber jacket…
Long mesh skirts with laser cut applique flowers….
The details were many, as were the number of vendors vying for attention.

I mean this in the most complementary way; being a designer I have the utmost admiration for the talent and artistry that was on display at Curve recently during a few warm muggy weeks in NYC.

One Legging at A Time

By TINA WILSON

Tina Wilson Fashion Illustrations on Lingerie Briefs

I ADORE LEGGINGS! They can be a dresses’ best friend or a t-shirt’s worst nightmare.  When I first started wearing leggings way back in the day when hair was poufy and high; they came in one length, they had no tummy control, they couldn’t heat you up or cool you down and they had no pockets.  The only holes in them were caused by your thighs rubbing together and they mostly came in Black.  Leggings were supposedly not worn by the ‘fashionable’ crowd and mocking someone for wearing them outside of the gym was not uncommon.

Fashion Illustrations by Tina Wilson on Lingerie BriefsI believe by the turn of this century there will no longer be categories of clothing, no sportswear, no intimates, no outerwear, we will have 7 articles of clothing, period …I will be dust by then and it’s probably just as well but in the meantime I will happily prepare for the inevitable and so should any forward thinking designer or retailer of apparel.
