It’s definitely autumn in the Northeast: chilly nights, sun stroked days, rainy interventions, pumpkins and chrysanthemums everywhere. If I were getting married again, it would be my pick of the seasons for a wedding.  One of the most memorable affairs I ever attended was held in a lodge in the Adirondack Mountains on Columbus Day. The foliage was in full rapture, the lake doubled the beauty as it reflected back a firestorm … Read More

In search of a theme for our holiday lingerie fashion editorial, Stephanie and I wanted to stay true to our creative aesthetic. How classic is the Nutcracker Suite! I suggested a story about the intimate world in which the dancers live while they are backstage in rehearsal and during the performance. Thirty two brands contributed to this visual panorama of exquisite intimates photographed to capture the symbiotic relationship between lingerie … Read More

Amoralle Bridal Lingerie gowns illustrated by Tina Wilson for Lingerie Briefs

So many beautiful pieces to choose from… that was my dilemma when sitting down to illustrate bridal themed ‘sleepwear’, though I probably shouldn’t call it sleepwear considering there is very little slumber going on.  The category is usually consisting of short flirty baby dolls, revealing corsetry, skimpy teddies and wispy wraps but sometimes a brand goes rogue like Amoralle.  They do “long and refined” like no one else, I love their … Read More


Charnos Baily Bridal Lingerie illustrated Tina Wilson on Lingerie Briefs

Spring has finally sprung, I think?  With its arrival comes not only warm days and cool nights but a royal wedding.  Not one to get swept up in celebrity/royalty weddings, I’m a bit more excited this time around, it’s not every day a royal marries an American.  And I love Harry, he’s my favorite.

Since Victorian times, it’s been customary to give the bride to be…a trousseau.  Jewelry, toiletries, makeup even bed … Read More
