Ooh La la! I spotted the hottest lingerie stall at the Kingston markets and spoke with the designer for Bombshell Design - Victoria Worley about her gorgeous designs...
Who or what influences your work? " Mainly calendar pin-up girls from the forties and fifties, anyone with curves. Also the fabrics I like to use are mostly pretty cottons which I think makes mine different to modern bras that use microfibres and moulded cups. I think bras have recently become very scientific and I want to bring some fun back to lingerie."
"I completed an Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design from CIT in 2000 with plans to become a costume designer. I still design costumes for The Australian Choreographic Centre and have done their last five Quantum Leap shows."
How did Bombshell Design begin? "After making a bra for a scene in a play, a friend who had trouble buying nice bras in her size asked if I would make one for her. This got me thinking there was a niche that wasn't being catered for. I decided to take it one step further by designing larger size maternity bras"
"I would describe my style as playful and feminine"
The tartan range pays homage to a favorite fashion design great Vivienne Westwood.
Where can we buy them? "As you know, I sell at the Old Bus Depot Markets and I am loving it. I have my website, which is being freshened up a bit, and I have designed and made a mastectomy bra for women after breast surgery that includes a pocket for prosthesis - available only at Colleen's Post Mastectomy Connection."
