HAPPY DAD’S DAY

By TINA WILSON

“Dad”, that is what I call my father. We all do, all 9 of us. He is also known as Papa. My dad has no interest whatsoever in what I am writing in this blog other than the fact that I am the one writing it. Absolutely no interest in fashion or shopping, which is one of the many reasons I love him. He is, however, a magnet for anyone under the age of 5, he is a contemplative introvert content and even quite happy to always be alone.… Read More

A margarita can be very inspiring, two of them can really get the lime juices flowing.  I was at my local “Cheers” for only the second time in 13 months, Santa Fe. Not the city but the Mexican bar and restaurant on 71rst street and Columbus Avenue in NYC.  It was the most glorious evening and I had not quite dealt with the fact that I had no subject for my next blog, when Laura Bird one of the managers, came over to our outdoor table to chat for the first time in a long time… we started to talk about life and business, as they are two very different things.… Read More

The contribution to the lingerie industry from Asian cultures is immeasurable. From the kimono silhouette to intricate embroideries or the origins of silk, the list is long. It’s high time to pay homage to Asia, even more so in these extraordinary times. I am not going to “preach” about race based hate and how it has no place in a civilized society; any decent evolved person knows this. The previous administration did not create this hate, it’s been here since the birth of this country, but it certainly endorsed it and made it “okay”.… Read More

History in Black and White

Black History Month and Black owned lingerie companies as illustrated by Tina Wilson for Lingerie Briefs

The second Black queen of England was named Charlotte and she reigned during the Regency era, who knew? Not I, not before Bridgerton. Bridgerton needs no introduction; the gorgeous costumes of the Netflix hit are surrounded by as much buzz and controversy as the ‘Duke’ (his ‘beauty’ often the subject of daily text threads with my women friends). Yes, there are some inaccuracies in time as they relate to what women wore back then, but it’s Hollywood.

Peeling back the layers of those costumes, I wanted to reveal what may have lain beneath them and how they relate to the lingerie of today as represented by Black owned lingerie brands.… Read More

Fashion Illustration, Wacoal America by Tina Wilson as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Giving is the new taking. Each day that passes brings stories of people and companies helping those in need.  I do not know what it’s like to lose someone to this pandemic nor do I know someone who has lost their home, so I am reminded each day just how fortunate I am.  It’s safe to say many of us who have weathered this madness relatively unscathed, are grateful, very grateful. My hope is that most of us have found our own ways to give back, however small the gesture or the pledge.… Read More

My first real encounter with the term ”transition” in fashion was being summoned from my perch just outside of Calvin’s office and into his. His private office was somewhere between a large studio apartment and an upstairs art gallery dotted with white minimal furniture. My time there at 205 West 39thstreet was the era of his “Obsession” perfume and the height of Calvin Klein jeans.  It was the debut of his underwear and hence the reason for my being there, that was my job.… Read More
