It’ll mostly be for events and articles on other sites that I want to share, but don’t forget to head to the main page for my most recent blog posts too.

The Underpinnings Museum
Founded in late 2016 by a team of lingerie lovers, the museum is an ongoing project, constantly updating and expanding its collections. Beginning by documenting the extensive vintage collection of a founding member (dating as far back as the 1700s, all the way to the modern day), the project will add crucial historical pieces to the archive and explore contemporary design controversies.
