So after my slightly ranty post on Mary Portas and her Kinky Knickers collection, I’ve decided that I’d be far more productive in actually showing off the British made brands that Toots & Booty love. This will be a weekly post and will feature a different brand each time until I run out of brands to talk about!

Ayten Mustafa set up Ayten Gasson in 2005 with the driven vision of creating lingerie that is made in the UK with British materials. Each Gasson piece is made up of the highest quality components: the lingerie ranges from Nottingham lace to organic silk, New England lace to peace silk and even peach cotton lace produced by Roger Watson (who made the lace for Princess Diana’s wedding dress).
Let’s be honest though, as lovely as it all is making lingerie that is eco and british industry friendly and so on, it wouldn’t be quite as satisfying if the lingerie wasn’t pretty.
Luckily, Ayten Gasson is stunning.
The SS12 collection is available on the website. The collection is inspired by the nostalgia of vintage sweeties with gorgeous pastel colours mixed in with the daintiest lace.
