All materials are included and you can choose:

 - elasticated lace in a few different colours and widths
 - ribbons in different colours and widths
 - charms, trinkets, tassles and feathers
If you have any vintage bits of lace or perhaps some trinkets at home that you would like to incorporate into the garter please feel free.

About Ninette:
I am an interdisciplinary designer working mainly in textiles and surface design. I graduated from Central St. Martins in 2007 where I developed a bespoke and seductive lingerie collection which was created as a reaction to women’s willingness to suffer for the sake of beauty. These special and painful jewel-encrusted undergarments create intimate and temporary tattoos in secret places on the body.
After graduating I worked as a design assistant for a luxury lingerie label called Bunnies Forever. I was involved in designing and making their second collection, Little Bird. Alongside this, I was also working at the London Metropolitan University as a lecturer.
In January 2009, I set up a bespoke wallpaper practice, Tactile Wonderland, with fellow textile designer, Rebecca Otero. Together we explore the interaction between the product and user through the medium of textiles.
