Underhaus Press Preview Pillow Talk
“I thought the event was wonderful- It was a concise use of time, we got to meet with editors and stylists and create first hand relationships.” Kaaren Bedi, Layneau Collection.
The Underhaus team put together an amazing Press Preview last week showcasing lingerie, swim and athleisure collections for Summer & FW15 from Affinitas & Parfait, Ana Ono, Alessandra Mackenzie, Alexis Mera, Daisy & Elizabeth, Harlow & Fox, LAYNEAU, Nevaeh Intimates and The Giving Bride.
It was a chance for brands to meet with press in an inviting and relaxed atmosphere. I personally had a great time meeting with all the designers and seeing the collections in person. Throughout the two-day event, 40+ press attendees, a mix of print and digital editors, writers, bloggers and stylists stopped by the venue.
Some of the visitors included Allure, Bridal Guide, Cosmo, CR Fashion Book, Daily Front Row, DU JOUR, Inside Weddings, ELLE, ESSENCE, Forbes Life, Lucky, MORE, OliviaPalermo.com, Oui Hours, People StyleWatch, REDBOOK, SELF, The Glamourai, TODAY.com, Town & Country and VOGUE. We’ve put together a selection of images from the brands here. Scroll down for all the images and contact details for the brands.

RTW loungewear fusing lounge, sleep and athleisure wear.
Alexis Mera was created in 2014 by Alexis Mera Damen, an FIT graduate with nearly a decade of experience in Merchandising and Product Development for Branded and Private Label Sleepwear (including DKNY Sleepwear, Lucky Brand Sleepwear and Tommy Hilfiger Sleepwear, to name a few). On a mission to redefine how, when and where loungewear is worn, Alexis embarked on her own venture with Alexis Mera: a “RTW loungewear” concept blurring the lines between lounge, sleep and athleisure wear.

Harlow & Fox
Made-in-the-UK lingerie and boudoir wear for DD – G cup.
Founder and creative director Leanna Williams began developing the brand from her own desire for elegant, captivating garments without a compromise on fit for a fuller bust, after finding a lack of lingerie available in her size which she felt truly embodied a luxury aesthetic.
Using opulent silks, fine leavers laces and intricate detailing, the entire collection is designed and made in Great Britain, using materials sourced from all over Europe. Delicate leavers laces from the same couture lacemaker that crafted the lace for the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding gown, French silk jacquards, Italian foiled laces and custom-dyed silks all combine to create beautiful pieces designed to be treasured.
