Piece by intricate piece, a work of art unfolds.
The lace that graces Verna Designs lingerie and loungewear seems as if it was spun out of the clouds themselves. But, bringing these handmade, one-of-a-kind creations to life requires a labor of love that is unmatched anywhere in the world.
This venise or guipure lace begins, quite literally, on Vernas drawing board. There she designs the complex and intricate shapes and patterns that have become the Verna Designs trademark.
Taking advantage of modern textile equipment, these individual patterns are embroidered onto a cloth backing, creating an attractive three-dimensional profile that begs to be touched. Then, the backing is disintegrated away, creating lace without mesh (guipure) in French. Originally, this was accomplished with chemicals; today, the cloth is melted away using a water-based method.
Then, the skills that no machine can learn take over the process. Vernas hand-picked and specially trained team of modern-day craftswomen turn these small lace pieces into stunning collages of lacework hand-cutting and sewing as many as a dozen individual sections into a seamless work of art, and marrying them to Vernas full line of sleepwear.
It all comes together beautifully.
It's all designed and produced in High Point, North Carolina, predominantly using materials made in the United States. Even the cotton for the lingerie has been hand-selected, meeting Verna's exacting guidelines for color and softness (guidelines, incidentally, that computers have not figured out how to reproduce). The end result is something that can simply not be copied.
A combination of genteel elegance and luxurious comfort, these creations are truly made with love. And, as customers ranging from movie stars to British royalty will attest, they quickly become some of the best-loved pieces in our intimate wardrobe.
100% Fine Cotton Interlock which gets softer with each wash.
Once you meet and talk with Veréna , you immediately recognize that she absolutely loves what she does and that she does it all with vigor, enthusiasm, commitment and a creative passion that has become a rare entity in today’s business environment.
It is very apparent that Veréna’s unique styling concept evolved from her European background and her European sense of quality. She has deftly combined Euro-Nostalgia, a bit of Victorian Ambiance and Classic American comfort into a style concept that has won fans and acclaim worldwide. Veréna recognizes that today’s contemporary woman still cherishes a fine sense of the romantic and the truly feminine. Her extraordinary designs create a special mood for your most private moments. It is her ultimate desire to make you feel special and beautiful.
With this special concept in mind, Veréna considers only the finest fabrics and selects only the most precious and luxurious details…reproductions of antique laces, intricate Venise shapes and edges, as well as delicate embroideries of her own design…all of which are ultimately transformed into the intricate collage effects that have become her signature.
Veréna’s transition from 25 years as a designer to manufacturer was a natural progression. She knew that only by producing her own designs and training her own staff, could she ever reach the desired level of quality and detail that would please the customer who appreciates the best. On that premise, in 1989 she started the company that bears her name and which continues to operate in her adopted hometown of High Point, North Carolina.
