Last week Dita Von Teese, our Destination Maternity team, and I met up at our flagship store in New York City to celebrate our collaboration with Dita on her Von Follies Maternity Lingerie Collection for new moms. Besides admiring her sexy separates, we enjoyed sipping on “Dita-tini” mocktails, savored sweet treats and received Dita-inspired retro touch-ups by Vensette, the premier on-demand beauty service. Guests were treated to Dita’s signature cat-eye and her classic red lip.So many people ask me about the collaboration; they wonder, why Dita? For me, it’s simple: Dita is known for her retro-inspired beauty and femininity AND THAT is something that being a new mom is truly all about. She understands fashion and how looking good goes hand in hand with feeling good. She wore a Carolina Herrera dress, Christian Louboutin (sigh) shoes and Bijoux Heart earrings. I rocked my A Pea in the Pod maternity dress, further proving how versatile it is! I’m no longer pregnant, but continue to find uses for this gorgeous style. Dita and I complimented each other on our chosen lipstick shades and got to talk about what makes new moms really glow.
So many devoted fans came to the event to meet the bombshell. A true beauty- Dita spoke to each and every guest while also signing autographs. The response to the retro-inspired maternity lingerie was overwhelming. It’s no surprise, because the pieces are not only soft and supportive, but ultra-feminine. It was an altogether great night in NYC. Shop the full Dita Von Teese nursing collection today. -Olivia
