A graduate in Fine Arts (Brussels) and from the celebrated Antwerp Academy, Carine Gilson was only 23 when she bought a small sewing workshop. This enabled her to launch the first Carine Gilson Couture Lingerie collection in 1994. Today Gilson continues to make fine art out of lingerie, giving it a top level of prestige that is known by lingerie connoisseurs around the world.
Gilson is one of the very few designers to consider underwear as überwear. She selects simply the finest Lyon silk, the airiest Chantilly lace, a cheeky range of colors, and the most thoughtful cuts; nothing is too good for Carine Gilson with her hand-crafted haute couture lingerie.
All of Gilson's pieces: bras, panties, slips, strings and negligees are unique. Produced in natural silk, a precious translucent material, they are both fluid and elegant when worn, all lovingly hand-stitched by master seamstresses in her Brussels workshop. The tiny irregularities in shade or finishing are precious details that testify to their authenticity.
With Carine Gilson, perfection is a second nature. Nothing else quite captures the romance, glamour and sophistication of fine lingerie.HIDE DESIGNER TEXT
