LingerieFW SS14 Day 3: a Celebration of Life and Lace
The brand wowed attendees with a spectacular show featuring a dozen pregnant lingerie models walking down the runway in high heels. The show enabled You! Lingerie founder and CEO, Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger to showcase her collection of sexy and fashionable maternity and nursing lingerie to a world-wide audience.
The amazing models were with Expecting Models Inc., an agency that represents pregnant models and actresses.
“We are excited to take part in this incredible showcase. We have worked really hard, so we are very proud to flaunt our gorgeous maternity and nursing products on the catwalk and Lingerie Fashion Week is an impeccable avenue to do that.” said Uyo.
“I think lingerie is taking a bigger role in the fashion industry. Innerwear as outerwear has already been a trend for several seasons now & I think it’s only going to grow.” – Lindsay Mueller, thatjenesaisquoi.com
Later that afternoon, LingerieFW newcomers NOE Undergarments made their show debut with a presentation of their new SS14 offerings. Founded by twin sisters, Bonnie Rae and Shelah Jean, the creative duo showcased their line of bras, panties, slips/lounge and ready-to-wear interpreted pieces on models wearing bright orange wigs.
Blogger Sweets of Sweet Nothings noted, “The long red gown is a close second-favorite look, after the white longline bra and knicker…The gown’s dramatic plunging back, with its single vertical black strap, is spare, striking, and sexy. The red color is also completely delicious.”

Finally, Affinitas & Parfait took over the runway to showcase 55 looks from their SS14 collections. LingerieFW ended with a closing party for guests benefitting the non-profit, Bright Pink. The party also included a pop-up exhibit by the Morris-Jumel Mansion Museaum featuring “the Loves of Aaron Burr” portraits in corsetry and binding by Camilla Huey.
“I loved LingeredFW,” said lingerie blogger Lindsay Mueller of thatjenesaisquoi.com. “I think lingerie is taking a bigger role in the fashion industry. Innerwear as outerwear has already been a trend for several seasons now and I think it’s only going to grow.”
Days after LingerieFW, press coverage continues to pop up online and in print. Pressed about details for the next edition of the show, Lauren Rich playfully stated, “You’ll have to wait and see! Details & dates to be announced soon on www.lingeriefw.com. Stay tuned.”
