PARIS — Vannina Vesperini, a young, French lingerie designer, has been a relative secret to all but the most sensitive style hounds. But now, she’s ready to bark out a new message.
With a new private investor on board, Vesperini harbors plans to roll out a string of boutiques in Europe this year with a plan to double sales in 2003 to $6 million. She has introduced a new bra collection and a debut swimwear line, which, along with her lingerie, will be exhibited at the Sept. 6-8 Lyon, Mode City trade fair in Lyon, France.
