Behind beautiful boudoir is a beautiful team. We are Christine Lingerie.
Christine is a silk lingerie and loungewear brand proudly made in Vancouver, Canada. All of our exquisite pieces of the finest silks and lace are designed, handmade and sent out into the world by an intimate team of talented, creative individuals who believe in quality, art as fashion, beauty, boudoir and most of all, making sure everything is made with love. From our designer in chief to the forces behind our marketing and sales department, from our seamstresses to our content creator to the designers who dream up our collections each season, here are the faces that are the forces behind the brand.
Christine Morton: Designer in Chief
Hello All, I am the Christine behind Christine Lingerie! I have had the privilege of designing fine silk and lace lingerie and loungewear for over 45 years. In that time, I have been delighted and inspired by how far we’ve come and I feel truly lucky to have acquired such a wonderful team of individuals who understand and share a common love for my vision. I started out designing bridal pieces and my career as a lingerie and loungewear designer grew from there in the name of romance, beauty and art. I live and breath my label, so while it feels impossible to chose just one piece that I love most, I did recently share a blog on my top five silk essentials, which you can read by clicking here. I wear my designs as both intimates and outerwear to feel beautiful, comfortable and chic. This has always been my mission when designing for other women as well: to make them feel beautiful inside and out, celebrating their own unique femininity through fabulous prints and luxurious silks. Thank you for your interest in our brand and welcome to Christine Lingerie! I hope you enjoy our collections!
Raymond Lee: Managing And Sales Director
Hello! My name is Raymond and I am the Sales & Managing Director here at Christine Designs. I have been immersed in this beautiful world of silk for over 5 years. You may have met me at The Curve Expo in New York, or heard my voice when you’ve called to inquire about one of the many exquisite pieces on our website.
Although I do not wear any of our lovely designs just yet (we are currently creating a menswear capsule for Fall 2020! Stay tuned!) I have a deep appreciation for the artistry involved in designing all of our silk prints. My favorite piece each season is our Gatsby Kimono. Its versatility lends itself to being worn as a robe with your favorite silk gown or paired with a tank, jeans and sexy heels for a night on the town. No matter, you are sure to receive compliments for this unforgettable piece.
Every season Christine creates prints that tell a story – like every Monet, Renoir, Picasso or Basquiat piece of art. Furthermore, all our prints are created exclusively for our brand in limited editions. Christine is all about form, function, fashion and fun, so don’t be shy! Be bold and wear prints you love as I have been inspired to do from working in such a creative place where art as fashion continues to thrive!
Kimberly Fairs: Supply Chain Manager & Creative Director
Hello world, my name is Kim and I’m the Supply Chain Manager at Christine. That means I oversee the production of all the beautiful silk garments that ultimately end up in your hands. Additionally, if you’ve ever emailed us or placed a custom order, chances are that you’ve heard back from me! 🙂
Being surrounded by such lovely fabrics and ornate laces day after day makes it challenging to choose one favorite Christine piece. With that in mind, the set I wear most frequently is undoubtedly the Candy Cami & Tap, a staple to our collections each season, always available in an array of colors, of which I have many. I love how comfortable and versatile the camisole is. I can wear it to bed or under a sweater, gauzy blouse, or paired with a blazer for work. With that in mind, I am tickled to say that with a baby girl on the way, I’ve been getting more use out of my short printed kimonos which have plenty of room to cover my growing bump while still making me feel deserving and beautiful on even my most listless days! The power of Christine’s silks is that there is something for every shape and size and every chapter of life to make you feel truly beautiful inside and out.
Evan Clayton: Pattern Drafter and Assistant Designer
Hi! My name is Evan and I’m the pattern drafter / assistant designer at Christine. Personally, I love wearing our Garbo nightshirts as outerwear. I order mine a few sizes larger and layer it over a slim pant in the Fall for a clean look or over denim cut-offs in the summer for a more fun, sexy vibe. I’m almost always in head to toe black, so the pop of sheen in the charmeuse really elevates the aesthetic. I am also very fond of our upcoming Geisha print! I have my eye on the long robe in that group because it is very extra, just like me! I love working directly with Christine to design and develop fresh, new collections while remaining timeless and classic. Being a part of this ever-evolving brand is something I am delighted to be a part of and contribute to.
Katrina Eugenia: Content Creator
Hi there! I’m Katrina, the one behind our social media, email blasts and blogs, such as this one! I am additionally the photographer behind a lot of our photoshoots, of which I am often the muse too! I have a lot of fun shooting self portraits in our extraordinary designs, often pretending that I am a princess, pinup or Hollywood actress, circa… 1940. 🙂 I also like to channel one of my favorite sultry, boudoir icons, the Italian actress, Monica Bellucci whenever I model for Christine. I furthermore enjoy dressing up my friends for some of our shoots too!
I work each month to create and source content that evokes the timeless beauty, romance and femininity of our brand, showcasing our collections of silk and lace. As for my personal favorites, I generally shy away from prints and always end up falling in love with our timeless, more simple pieces each season. Right now I love the Sandwashed Chemise, the Arabella Gown, the Audrey Gown, and like Kim, I always love a good cami and tap. I too love to style our camis as outerwear. In the winter, I am OBSESSED with our velvets… So obsessed that I once had a gown made out of our velvet for an event and have worn it at every opportunity I get ever since! With that in mind, the upcoming Gatsby print for SS20 has really had an impact on me and I think it might be a game changer. I’m converting to bright and bold beautiful prints this Spring! I think I’ll need the entire collection!
Raquel Ascencio: Logistics Manager
Hi! My name is Raquel and I am the Logistics Manager at Christine Designs. I am responsible for making sure that you receive your items on time and that they are made at the highest quality standards. I take great pride in making sure that every customer receives their cherished silks successfully. I love being part of the Christine family and I love every single garment we produce. The unique designs that our brand brings to the consumer inspire me everyday! I now own several pieces myself, but my favorite is the classic pajama pants. They are beautifully made and super comfortable. I love contributing to the incredible collaborative and creative environment at Christine Designs and I look forward to continuing to share our creations with the fashion world!
Claudia Agusti: Sales and Marketing Associate
Coming from a design background, it has been fascinating to witness the process that brings all the beautiful Christine styles to life. In today’s world of fast fashion, I am very proud to work for a Vancouver company that values beautiful design and quality craftsmanship, made right here in our hometown.
I am fairly new to Christine but my love for the brand definitely goes way back. The first item I ever purchased holds a special place in my heart. It was a black PJ set piped in pearl white. It’s understated elegance made them feel truly chic and timeless. Feminine but not girlie. Very Coco Chanel! Since then, I have acquired a small collection of beautiful pieces that I wear constantly. I have kimonos that feel as natural worn at home as they do out for dinner with friends and many beautiful camis that I love for their amazing versatility.
Being surrounded by these gorgeous designs everyday has made one thing clear to me, my small collection will not be so small for much longer!
