Love Bomb: Ayten Gasson
One of the most interesting things about the Love Bomb is having an insight into the different ways brands have their items made. All of us strive to purchase the highest quality of materials from around the world, from What Katie Did’s traditional methods to Kriss Soonik’s handmade in Estonia garments.
Ayten Gasson is a brand that is all about supporting the UK fashion industry, using only the best quality of fabrics. Ayten Mustafa is the brains and beauty behind this eco-conscious brand, which launched in 2005. After graduating from Central Saint Martin’s Ayten found that most of the UK factories had been forced to close, thanks to designers searching for cheaper alternatives in Europe and further afield. Choosing to support those still remaining, the brand uses both vintage Nottingham lace and new English lace to trim their delicate silks.
Signature Ayten Gasson styles include the skirted knicker and beautiful silk teddy, and her SS12 collection features stunning nostalgic pieces inspired by vintage penny sweets. Yum!
This definitely looks like one lucky piece of lingerie, it is stunning! I’d love to combine this into an outerwear outfit, allowing the gorgeous lace across the bust to be the focal point of the look.
I love lingerie that makes me feel summery, without being a cliché colour. This cute soft cup bra would make the perfect gift, perhaps for those just developing their love of lingerie!
