Early 2019 Urban Poetry intimates has been founded by Bodil Loïs Huisman. After several years of working experience in the fashion industry she realized that things must change and can be changed. This lead to her decision to follow the Master program Sustainability in Fashion at ESMOD Berlin. There she learned how to challenge existing barriers and to use them as an opportunity to develop innovative and progressive fashion concepts. Her graduation project, a biodegradable and circular lingerie collection, was the start of what later turned into Urban Poetry intimates.
Bodil: "I see lingerie as a beautiful extra layer to extend someone’s personality. But at the same time keep it an intimate affair. To me sustainable fashion means creating a design that does not just take, but actually gives back. This is what makes a sustainable piece become your secret super power, and that’s what fascinates me."
