If the third time’s the charm, then the third annual runway presentation of Between The Sheets (BTS) will not only slip you into a frenzied mood, but leave you dreaming about bras, g-strings and lacy little things long after it’s over. Showcasing fresh design talent from the prestigious Intimate Apparel Program at New Yorkâ€™s Fashion Institute of Technology, this yearâ€™s barely-there extravaganza will be held Friday, May 11th, from 9:30 â€“ 10:30 PM at New York City hot-spot Studio.
Founded in February of 2005 by C.E.O./Designer Layla Lâ€™obatti, BTS merges high fashion with underground edge, already garnering a cult following of lingerie lovers everywhere as well as industry professionals. By giving student designers a platform on which to express their talent and creativity, BTS aims to provide a means of experience and exposure beyond the classroom.
â€œThe goal of Between The Sheets is to give young designers a chance to channel their fantasies, desires and dreams into collections which are shown in a real-life setting, building their confidence, exposure, and networking skills as they head out into the competitive world of fashion,â€ explains Lâ€™obatti.
Inspired by the elusive and seductive nature of dreams, Lâ€™obatti chose the theme â€œWhat Dreams May Come,â€ for this yearâ€™s presentation. Approximately twenty designers (Lâ€™obatti included) will send looks down the runway, featuring their visions and dreams for the future of intimate apparel. The cutting-edge collections will span all that the industry has to offer, from flirty corsets, bras and panties to sexy sleep, day and swimwear.
