Dita Von Teese explains her inspiration for her lingerie line
Dita is known for her burlesque routines and her amazing retro outfits. So, it came as no surprise when she created her own Dita Von Teese Lingerie collection. When talking to Glamour magazine, she explained that this was the perfect collection for her.
The dancer worked for a lingerie store since she was 15 for almost ten years. She became so enamored with the items, that she started collecting retro pieces in her own time. So, when she got the opportunity to create her own line, she couldn’t refuse.
“The collection is really inspired by vintage pieces that I’ve collected in the last 23 years. Also, I collect a lot of vintage pinup art, vintage catalogs, and men’s magazines from the ’30s and ’40s, so I take a lot of inspiration from that. But mainly the collection is based on retro style. Not replicas of vintage lingerie but finding ways of making it more functional and wearable.”
