Today we profile Ophelia, who launched her own label, “Ophelia Lingerie,” in October 2015. Ophelia designs unique pieces that are strong but fragile, and as wearable as they are mysterious. The brand is 100% handmade, values form, function and craftsmanship, and is inspired by contemporary art, vintage design, and the modern woman.
For the pop-up store Ophelia has designed a body jewel inspired by lightning marks left on a body after it has been struck. Ophelia designs this piece as she would one of her lingerie items, this beautiful and artistic piece of jewellery is both fragile and strong and wraps around the body in a delicate way, with stunning effect.
Ophelia studied Art – a Bachelor degree in Autonomous Design at KASK Ghent – which she combined with evening classes in lingerie design. After graduation she went to Paris for five months to embark on an internship with a small lingerie brand named KS Paris. Ophelia joined MODESIGN Academy to acquire an overview of the fashion world, to get a better understanding of the business aspects and to expand her network for Ophelia Lingerie.
