Cass and Company Founder Susan Ledyard Wins Top Gold Award for Women in Business – Entrepreneur of the Year – Consumer Products and Silver Award – Innovator of the Year

Cass and Company Founder/President Susan Ledyard has been named the top Gold Award Winner as Entrepreneur of the Year – Consumer Products. The Award – The Stevie Award for Women In Business – was given out at a gala dinner in New York City on November 8.
Susan Ledyard also won in a second prized category – Innovator of the Year. The Stevie Award is one of the top three national/international awards given
specifically to women in business.
Cass and Company – also known as Cass Luxury Shapewear – is a leader in luxury shapewear.
The company was founded nine years ago after Susan Ledyard had given birth to two children and was unable to find quality shapewear. She chose to create the products herself. $50 million in retail sales later, she is considered an innovation leader in shaping tops, bottoms, dresses, hosiery and accessories.
Ledyard was honored for her innovative role in shapewear, an $812 billion business (2011) with fewer women than men at the top, since July 1, 2012. These innovations include adding copper to shapewear – an industry innovation – against a chorus of criticism and skepticism.
Ledyard saw the benefits herself – enhanced skin tone, texture, reduced wrinkles and the providing of anti-bacterial protection. Cass and Co. is now in the process of incorporating copper into hosiery.
In the same award-winning time frame, Ledyard introduced “Luster,” shapewear with literally “zero gasp factor”; “Lucky Back” – shapewear that prevents slouching and rounded shoulders; and what could just be the first shaping top for larger women that doesn’t dig into healthy tissue at all. Madonna wore Cass on her most recent tour. The superstar asked Ledyard to design styles for the tour, including for her dancers. How else to wear shapewear and also move around easily as well as have the shapewear function equally well as outerwear, an already well-known Ledyard innovation.
Ledyard was also honored because she went against the industry requirement of a New York City showroom (and apartment) and chose instead to spend more time with her family and to build a business compound on farmland in the wilds of Pennsylvania. “I worried the change would affect my business relationships and stores would no longer work with me,” says Ledyard. “Results were the opposite because my employees are so much more relaxed.” Productivity has tripled; gross margins
increased 15%.
The entrepreneurial award is one of three awards given in the category based on company size; Ledyard’s honor is for companies with “10 or less employees.” The Innovator of the Year Award is given in three categories: Advertising, Marketing, Public Relations and Business Services; Health Products and Services; and Ledyard’s impressive category – “All Other Industries.” The Award was given out at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York

The Addict Expose: Angela Friedman S/S 2014

                    by Treacle

Angela Friedman has been on my radar for years, and if the lingerie goddesses believe in any kind of justice, this will be the collection that puts her on everyone else’s lust list as well. I am so excited to show these photos because this is the collection that made me declare Angela Friedman the best luxury lingerie brand of 2013.

Every lingerie addict knows that the editorial is only part of the story. The photos give you a sense of what the pieces look like and how they might fit into your lifestyle, but the things that transform lingerie into an experience of true lingerie are really hard to convey via 
photograph. I saw these pieces in person during last season’s ingerie market, and they are exquisite. The fabric…the stitching…every little detail is in place, and it’s all perfect. And, 
like everything else Angela Friedman designs, each piece can custom made specifically for you in your unique measurements (though, of course, wholesale orders in standardized sizing are 
available for boutiques too).

I really can’t say enough good things about this line. I think it represents a huge leap forward for the designer and, without question, quite firmly places Angela Friedman into the upper 
echelons of luxury lingerie…both in terms of construction and aesthetic. There are pieces here that I think would be at home in any 
lingerie boutique or even a high-end department store. Like I said, if the lingerie goddesses are watching, this year will be Angela Friedman’s year.

What do you think of the S/S 2014 collection? Do you have any favorite pieces? I’m quite partial to the corsets, but I also think that long sheer gown is divine. I’m wearing it in my head on my 
imaginary 1 year anniversary trip to Fiji. 
Please share your thoughts in the comments. All photos by Omi Tanaka.

Christine Lingerie Covers Harlequin

Christine Lingerie is now dressing the covers of Harlequin! Harlequin Enterprises Limited is a Toronto-based company that publishes approximately 120 new titles each month in 29 different languages in 107 international markets on six continents. Approximately 131 million of these well known romance novels are purchased each and every year.
The final touches have been made to the Collection and the office is buzzing with excitement as the Curvexpo Lingerie Show draws closer. On February 23, 24 & 25 buyers from all over the world and representatives from the most prestigious boutiques and department stores will be flying into NYC for the show. Christine Lingerie can be found in Booth #530 at the Javits Centre.

Monday February 24th marks the first annual Lingerie Fashion “Night In” to be held at Skyline Studios in TriBeCa. Christine will be presenting three runway looks from her Diva, Garbo, and Gatsby Collections.
The Diva Collection features an exclusive (to Christine) French lace designed into black lace boleros & bodices with Toffee and Ruby jewel tone chemises and bias cut gowns appliquéd with lace and then daringly cut-away. 
The Garbo Collection is made up of best-selling “basic” styles that have been revamped this season to emphasize colour-blocking. Christine’s palate of colours has always been on trend and now best selling kimonos can be banded in contrast adding a heightened sense of drama to her already gorgeous foundations.
The Gatsby Collection is likely the most exciting new direction for the Season. Over the top luxe lounge pants with side-seamed pockets and tunic length camisoles in textured crepe silk are layered under a digital silk print from Italy boasting peacock plumes and bamboo leaves. to make an appointment to see the Collection
