Lingerie designer Christina El-Hawi recently launched her debut brand, Dentelle etc, in the UK and we wanted to share with our readers images from her inaugural AW12 collection.
Described by designer as combining the best quality fabrics, perfect fit and thoughtful fashion led designs Dentelle etc is held together strong femininity, romance and nostalgia.
“Recognizing that women have many facets to their personality and fill many roles throughout life, you will discover three varied collections, suited to work, passion and the ever crucial, ‘Me Time’,” explained Christina. “With there being something for everyone throughout these collections we know that the brand has the ability to make a woman feel glamourous and confident as well as comfortable.”
With the vision of being an affordable boutique brand, Christina El-Hawi has a strong commitment to producing her products in a socially responsible manner.
“Whilst the finest fabrics and trims are sourced from European companies, all sampling and production is done in UK factories,” she noted. “Lingerie is beautifully presented in pillow packs with tissue wrap and luxury swing tags, thoughtfully designed and produced in the UK. Dentelle etc brochures are all printed on either recycled or FSC approved paper.”
Lingerie retail starts at 20 pounds and a percentage of all sales will be donated to women or children’s charity. For more information, please visit: dentelleetc.co.uk
