Karolina Laskowska began as a lingerie brand in 2012, after the designer was overwhelmed with requests to sell her creations from online fans. Founded alongside her studies at De Montfort University’s renowned Contour Fashion, the brand went from strength to strength, receiving critical acclaim and a loyal following. In the Summer of 2014, Karolina graduated with a first class honours after being selected to present her couture corsetry collection at Graduate Fashion Week. Karolina also received the prestigious award for ‘Best New Designer’ at the 2014 UK Lingerie Awards. Karolina’s passion for design lies in her love of exquisite textiles. Whether upcycling vintage artisan kimono silks, antique handmade silk lace or beaded couture French laces, her designs feature both a fierce femininity and a sense of playful eroticism. Biography
In her spare time, Karolina can be found listening to obnoxious music (the heavy metal influences in some of her designs are quite obvious), baking extravagant pastries, getting overexcited by shiny things and rolling around in chantilly lace and Swarovski crystals in a state of glee. She has a lot of hair and a tendency to pretend she has a moustache. As you may have noticed by now, Karolina can sometimes struggle to take life seriously, particularly when she has to talk about herself.
