The runway featured designs by:
Poetic Works Lingerie
Poetic Works Lingerie, at its heart, is committed to sustainability, and providing clothing that isn’t just something to throw on, but a piece of art to wear. Something to dream in. The designer, Amarantha, combines a love of beauty with an uncompromising need for comfort. Each piece is cut and sewn by her in a small studio. Before release, each design is sewn and tested by her to insure nothing is uncomfortable or prone to misbehaving. Then tweaked if need be, a new prototype sewn and tried again until everything is just right. Silk fabric forms the frame and cups of the bras, and details on the briefs. A natural, hypoallergenic fiber, with wear the silk cups mold to your shape, becoming like a second skin with increased comfort and fit. The organic cotton she uses is a made-in-the-USA jersey, with a little bit of spandex for added stretch and recovery so it doesn’t loose its support as you wear it and the elastics are all latex free.
Makeout Market believes that small steps towards sustainability can add up to real, lasting change, and your wardrobe is the perfect place to start. Makeout Market hopes to make ethical shopping accessible for the everyday woman, helping her dress mindfully from the inside out. Makeout Market is a resource for slow fashion, starting with ethically made basics. Their in-house designer creates sexy, comfy undies you can wear alone or layer on top of.
