Every year designers display their creations at New York Fashion Week, hoping to leave a lasting impression on fashionistas. This year, one pioneering design team is offering a truly unique collection: upstart fashion house Chrysalis will show the very first line of lingerie made by and for trans women.
“A lot of women have been waiting a long time for something like this,” Chrysalis co-founder Cy Lauz told Lingerie Talk.
“Speaking from personal experience, I found no products that specifically cater to transgender women. There are some things for crossdressers and drag queens, but they’re all sexually exploitative. I wanted a product that actually celebrated who we are, something that made us feel beautiful but is also practical.”
The line will launch officially this spring with bra and panty sets available in five colours. Lauz says Chrysalis garments allow those who have not fully transitioned to accentuate the feminine form.
