She said; “I’m Vivienne Lynch, founder and CEO of Miss Vivienne Lingerie. We are a made to order lingerie brand based in Melrose, Scottish Borders. It’s my mission to empower women through beautiful, ethically manufactured, sustainable lingerie that is made to last!
I discovered my love of lingerie in my second year of University. Unfortunately I was studying Womenswear and didn’t fancy getting into tens of thousands of pounds worth of debt to study lingerie in England.
Instead, I carried on with my degree and seized any opportunity to educate myself in all things underwear! I sought out internships, completed short courses and read any book I could find that would show me how to construct undergarments.
I applied all that knowledge to my honours collection and almost immediately after graduation, my small business journey began! I’ve gone from working alone in my spare bedroom to a beautiful studio in Melrose with a team of five wonderful women. We fulfil orders from the Borders to all the way to Alaska!
Making lingerie is no longer a challenge. Running a busy business and attempting to scale it, however? Now, THAT’S a challenge! Whether you are a product or service based business, the learning never ends. I can’t wait to talk to you all about the ways in which I’ve developed my business know-how and the power of investing in yourself!”
