Maintaining ownership of the $7.2 billion lingerie business was a key message at last week’s trend seminar hosted by the Underfashion Club.
The seminar, which was staged at the St. Giles Hotel in Manhattan, focused on the abundance of crossover items, such as corsets and bras, that were featured on ready-to-wear runways for spring 2012 in Europe and the United States. A slide presentation showed a plethora of lingerie looks ranging from sheer tops floating over unconstructed bras and bandeaus, chemises and slipdresses with triangle-shape bralet bodices, and a variety of active-inspired tops and briefs that gleaned inspiration from swimwear and the sports arena.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
