(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Monica Ditzler started “making panties and selling to friends” in 2007 as a sideline to her full time design jobs in girl’s apparel and denim. For the past few years she has also been selling on Etsy.com, and now will be exhibiting her Spring/Summer 2015 collection of intimate apparel, harMonica Design, at the upcoming Curvexpo in New York.
“Up until now I’ve been selling one of a kind pieces that I made myself. I love making each one but it’s not sustainable for growth,” she told BODY. “Now I’m working with a small factory in NYC to produce my collections and will add e-commerce to my website this year.” Curve is her first show.
At the Etsy shop panties retail for $30 to $35, thongs for $25.
Spring/Summer 2015 “will have between 12-16 pieces,” she said, including “a new panty fit as well. Bralettes are the newest addition to the collection, in regular and fuller cup sizes,” and will be at Curve, she continued. “Wholesale prices start around $20” for the new grouping. Currently she is also planning to add “leggings and related pieces.”
Ditzler “majored in intimate apparel during my associate’s degree at FIT, then switched to sportswear and tailoring for my bachelor’s.” According to her Linkedin profile she worked as head designer, DKNY Girls at Parigi Group, and before that as a denim designer at Vanilla Star and Hot Kiss among other industry jobs.
Up to now her intimates have only been sold in her own Etsy store.
