About the Collections
Lise Charmel of France
Since the 1950s Lise Charmel has been at the foray of French luxury corsetry, specializing in opulent fabrics for a discerning clientele.

More recently they have launched their diffusion line of corsetry for the larger woman without compromising on the style or the fabric.
Aubade of Paris
Having existed for over a century, this fine French lingerie company is above all a large family of 450 collaborators sharing the same values and the same vision for the future.
At the AUBADE helm, the third generation of the PASQUIER family is perpetuating the movement initiated by Claude Pasquier, creator of the brand and its expression in the sphere of seduction.
As the fruit of months of research and studies, each product is unique, boasting a concentrate of Aubade savoir-faire. No less than 15 different fabrics in each bra - from high-profile fabrics to small reinforcements, each assembly operation requires a specialist worker. The Aubade lingerie workshops benefit from longstanding savoir-faire and respectful craftsmanship with great attention to detail resulting in unique end product quality.
Each collection requires long months of work. From the imagination connected to fashion themes, desires in tune with the times, manufacture and delivery to boutiques, to finally gracing women's bodies, two years have elapsed.
Ravage of Paris
Ravage has built a strong reputation for its meticulous attention to quality in the fabrication of its French luxury-line products.

The Ravage woman is a seductress at heart, appreciative of beautiful materials and with a sense of fashion. She wants to enjoy herself and shows herself off to her best advantage. Buying lingerie is a pleasure for her. Accordingly each year, the company introduces six new lines with a dozen or so articles in three or four colors.
Figuratively Ravage means to break hearts and to give rise to irresistible passions, which is the underlying message since the brand's existence in 1990. There are two distinct Ravage women: the Feminine and the Seductress.

"Today every one of us is multi-faceted and wishes to express her femininity in all possible ways.

Not only was Jacqueline a treasure to work with but she was also able to give us so many great photos from which to choose. Many times we only took six to eight photos because she was able to highlight the features of the product quickly and beautifully.
