Essex girls Stevi and Em founded Ophelia Fancy back in 2005 and have been terrorizing the shores of sunny Brighton with their quirky double-act ever since. During this period they have successfully decked out the most extraordinary client list ranging from Fern Britton to The Horrors, with their bespoke and inspired revivalist collections.
Undoubtedly 2009 will witness this cult lingerie brand push their creative boundaries to the limit, with the launch of their Spring/Summer collections exclusively manufactured in the UK with the most beautiful materials they could lay their little hands on.
The Lingerie Post has been covering Ophelia Fancy since we’ve launched and we’ve loved every single one of their collections. Why? Because Ophelia Fancy is always innovative, always provocative and always made with the highest quality standards in mind. Yes, it’s a little pricey; but yes, it’s worth it.
Ophelia Fancy has recently won an ‘Individual Designer Award’ at the Swatch Alternative Fashion Week. An insight and passion for a presently blossoming burlesque scene provided them with the perfect catalyst needed to stimulate their winning designs.

Dressed in her latest summer creations of cute polka dot tulles and tomato ginghams, she rocks up to the club house excited at the prospect of her very own camper with a picket fence and manicured lawn. Bill walks out with a cheeky smile and leads her to the holiday homes of her dreams, she drops her case and out spills a vast array of sparkles, ruffles and flowers in the form of the most beautiful lingerie Seaford has ever seen. Bill blushes and she breathes a sigh of relief, she made it just in time, he turns the sign on the door…
