You’ve worked in ready-to-wear for luxury brands. What prompted your move to intimates?
One night my partner Emilio Ramirez and I were drinking a bottle of wine and started discussing this aesthetic that we love—a fresh take on lingerie that wasn’t so boudoir. That was the seed for The Great Eros. We felt like there was a girl that wanted something modern and understated that could be a wardrobe staple and still feel special. When people think of lingerie, they don’t always think of comfort. It can be super strappy and uncomfortable, so I’m constantly searching for the most comfortable, innovative fabrics out there.
