The 'Babydoll' slip by Carine Gilson

On graduating from the Antwerp Academy in Belgium, Carine Gilson bought a lingerie workshop to fulfil her ambition to make couture lingerie.

Today her lingerie is made in her atelier in Brussels from silk sourced in Lyons and Chantilly lace made in Calais. This short film shows members of her staff making the ‘Babydoll’ slip displayed in the exhibition, ‘Undressed: a Brief History of Underwear’.
