Meet Angie, the Brains Behind the Brand!
Today, we take a deep dive into Angie’s Showroom with an interview with none other than Angie herself! Keep reading for the delicious details of how this handmade, luxury lingerie line commenced, what inspired it, and more!
Q: How, when, and why did this company begin?
A: When I moved to TX, I was thinking to start something on my own. I was always working in huge corporations and my last job was in a start-up company in Cyprus. Basically, it was my first experience of working with a small group of people, creating everything from scratch. So, when I finally moved to Texas, I knew I wanted to do something on my own. I had experience starting a company prior to Angie’s Showroom; I started a reselling business of luxury handbags, shoes, and accessories for women, which I still own and run. This soon got me thinking to move forward with my very own brand. I have always loved lingerie, stockings, and night slips, so it was really a no-brainer! Moreover, I had received a handmade lingerie set for my honeymoon as a gift from my friends, that which truly solidified my intentions.
Q: What is your mission of Angie’s Showroom?
A: The mission of Angie’s Showroom is to bring handmade, exclusive, and limited collection lingerie sets to the United States market. In terms of materials, pricing, and design, I could not find any pre-existing brand like it. Our mission is to showcase something so different in order to make women feel exclusive and sexy in our lingerie. By exclusive, I mean that every set is one-of-a-kind and each collection is limited. We do not focus on mass-production, like many other brands. This ensures that each collection is personal and unique, and we are always creating new designs!
Q: What sets Angie’s Showroom apart from other lingerie and competing brands?
A: Production, material, quality, and cost! Each one of our sets and individual pieces are handmade with only the highest quality materials. We work mostly with silk, French or Italian lace, and satin materials. Each piece is uniquely designed to evoke femininity and confidence, and we pay high attention to each and every detail. Additionally, we price our sets between luxury brand sets ($300-400) and a medium-class, non-silk market ($70-100). With Angie’s Showroom sets, you receive high-quality, luxury sets for reasonable prices!
Q: What makes you different from competing brands?
A: Less than 1% of all lingerie brands are handmade, which makes Angie’s Showroom very unique, indeed! Our exclusive designs are handcrafted in Europe, and each collection is capsule or limited. We use only the highest quality materials and still keep our sets at reasonable costs for such products.
Q: Where do the set designs come from?
A: I am lucky enough to work with several fantastic designers, and I recently came out with my first small collection, consisting of three unique sets. These sets will be in stock in October of 2020, and I am excited for the reveal! My inspiration comes from famous lingerie brands, such as Agent Provocateur, Fleur du Mal, La Perla, Journelle, and Chantal, among many others.
Q: What is most important to you when creating a set?
A: Each design is created to provide our customers with comfort and confidence. Our collections are beautifully tailored and customized, and our first thought is always how the set feels and fits the body. The goal is to create high-quality pieces that fit and feel great on the skin! Additionally, we like to create sets in a variety of colors, sizes, and patterns; we truly have something for everyone!
Q: What are your featured and best-selling sets at the moment?
A: I’m glad you asked! Our featured and best-selling sets at the moment include the Ornella Lingerie set in beige, the Rose Collection, Solo lingerie set, and our Lily and Joli Cami and Short pajamas in different colors, which are currently on sale!
