HOW DID YOU GET INTERESTED IN EXOTIC LINGERIE AND FETISH WEAR?
I’ve always had an interest in lingerie and fashion – for as long as I can remember. I love how one small piece of leather – or lace – can turn a housewife into a bedroom tigress, the girl next door into a sex kitten, or the man delivering your packages into an object of desire.
AND FROM THERE, HOW DID THAT INTEREST GROW INTO A BUSINESS?
We started selling on eBay in February 2013, and things went well. So well, in fact, that we decided that our next step would be to start our own store. eBay was the building block that allowed us to start on this journey.
WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE SHOP AT BLACK LABEL LINGERIE?
Black Label Lingerie was designed for anyone who uses fantasy to escape from the monotony of everyday life. This includes men and women from all walks of life – your 9 to 5’ers, your 5 to 9ers, your 69-ers and your upsidowners. ;)
WHAT ARE YOUR MOST POPULAR ITEMS?
Leather lingerie is really hot right now. Leather corsets, leather bustiers, even our leather waist cinchers. And for those who love the leather look but not so much the price of leather, we also offer a faux leather option to most of our leather lingerie.
IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE A FAVORITE BETWEEN CORSETS AND CATSUITS, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Hmm. I really like both, but for different reasons. I honestly love corsets. A corset can double as intimate apparel and be worn outside the bedroom as part of a sexy ensemble. In addition, a corset will help pull in the waist and give a more busty appearance. But a sexy pvc catsuit can be a strong foundation for a fun night of fetish fantasy. Think: sexy, shiny catsuit, a pair of handcuffs and a paddle.
WHAT TRENDS DO YOU SEE EMERGING IN EXOTIC LINGERIE AND FETISH WEAR IN THE NEAR FUTURE?
In the short time that our store has been open, I have noticed that fetish wear is becoming more mainstream in our society. I think more couples are realizing the importance of sexuality in their relationships, and using lingerie and role play as a way to explore their relationships.
FETISH WEAR IS POPPING UP MORE AND MORE IN MAINSTREAM ENTERTAINMENT AND EVERYDAY LIFE, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?
I think it’s awesome! People are finally realizing how important sexuality is in their lives, and how much it can contribute to a happy and healthy relationship.
WE RECENTLY COLLABORATED ON THE FIXE ANNIVERSARY PARTY, WHAT WAS YOUR TAKE AWAY FROM THAT EXPERIENCE?
The fIXE Anniversary Party was my first fetish party – and it was such an amazing experience. The people were so respectful, open and friendly. I truly felt I was among friends there. And the girls looked absolutely stunning all dressed in Black Label Lingerie! My husband and I can’t wait til our next fIXE party!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
This! I love working on Black Label Lingerie – my husband and I make such a great team together. I get to incorporate everything that I enjoy doing, photography, writing, web design, marketing, fashion…there are so many different hats that I have the opportunity to wear now, and I love wearing every single one of them. And it makes it all worthwhile to know that it’s all in the name of helping couples to better their sex lives – and their relationships with each other.
