Meet the Designer
A conversation with Lazy Girl Lingerie designer Cassandra Pons.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am Cassandra and I am the founder of Lazy Girl Lingerie. At the moment I am a solopreneur, I design, pattern make and sew all of my own designs, as well as packing and posting them for my orders and run my website and my online marketing. Phew! It keeps me busy.
IF YOU WEREN'T DOING THIS WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
My back up career options were a veterinarian or a psychologist, but I'm such a creative person that I feel like I always knew I needed to create on a daily basis so I am happy where I have ended up.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 3 WORDS:
Kind, Passionate and Dedicated.
HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO START A LINGERIE LABEL?
Fashion label yes, lingerie label no - actually! I was obsessed with all things vintage when I started fashion college but my label came about when I couldn't find the kind of lingerie and pretty knickers that I wanted to wear that flattered my body (and didn't squish it in!).
FAVOURITE THING TO DO:
Now that Spring has sprung, I make sure I get to the beach as much as I can for a dip in the ocean. It's so refreshing.
FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP:
Find coffee! ASAP.
BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER BEEN GIVEN:
Life is what you make it.
