Babydoll slip by Carine Gilson, Belgium, Brussels, 2015

Labels and date

Made in Brussels

On graduating from the Antwerp Academy in Belgium at the age of 23, Carine Gilson bought a lingerie workshop to fulfil her ambition to make couture lingerie.

Today her lingerie is made in her atelier in Brussels from silk sourced in Lyons and Chantilly lace made in Calais. The fabrics inspire her designs, which are subtle and often complex.

This short 2 minute film shows the slip on display being made in Carine Gilson's atelier.
