Belgian designer Carine Gilson presented her first book Garden of Lace – an ode to virtuoso sensuality, that explores designer’s sources of inspiration, craftsmanship, as well as the stories behind the Chantilly silk and Lyon lacework.
“For the past 30 years, Carine Gilson has been designing the most refined and luxurious silk and lace lingerie from her studio in Brussels. Birds of paradise, exotic blooms, the Garden of Eden, Klimt, Art Nouveau and Les Ballets Russes serve as inspiration for the fantastic and exclusive oeuvre of this Belgian designer with her own stores in Paris, London, Taipei and Brussels. The most luxurious couture houses distribute her designs around the globe.
Her lingerie exudes a refined sensuality and is worn by the most beautiful women in the world, including Kate Moss, Madonna, Kirsten Dunst, Monica Bellucci and Naomi Campbell. The lacework and silk are incredibly refined and her ‘haute lingerie’ designs transport you to a dreamworld of femininity and virtuosity.“
