Dottie’s Delights SS12 Video


Dottie’s Delights new Magic Garden Collection for SS12 is a step into designer Stephanie Kuhr’s whimsical, bright and gorgeous world of lingerie.

“This season I was inspired by secret gardens and the magical storybook-like locations referenced in 60’s girl group songs,” said Stephanie. “In general, this collection is a bit more whimsical and dainty than past collections.”

Dottie’s Delights will have a special early ordering opportunity for the Midnight Soiree set (pictured left) so that it will be available in time for Valentine’s Day sales. The rest of the collection will be available 3/1/12.

For her inspiration, Stephanie looked to vintage lingerie from the mid 20th century. “I take elements from my personal collection and mash several decades together to create a vague vintage feel that still remains true to the aesthetic and craftsmanship of the past. I try to use the highest quality and most authentic materials possible and strive to make all pieces as functional as they are attractive. My girdles and shapewear are made to take a beating and still last while nipping in the waist and smoothing out the tummy. My bras are a modified bullet bra style, closest in shape to the 60’s so that they hearken a vintage silhouette without looking costume-y or extreme,” she said.

Stephanie will present highlights from her new collections to the public in person at Chicago’s fashion week — Fashion Focus on October 18th. This large scale runway presentation is held at Millenium Park in downtown Chicago and will be presented by Macy’s and in conjunction with the Chicago Fashion Incubator. “I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of six designers for the non-profit business mentoring program in 2010.”

“We are also working with a new design firm to revamp the website set to launch in time for the Magic Garden release and we are very excited about these new directions!” noted Stephanie.
