corset skirts sets

  • During the Nineties and Noughties huge changes were wholesale Plus Size Lingerie taking place in the world, fashion, trends and technology were moving at an ever faster pace and the company too changed with it.

     

    Production corset skirts sets went offshore and my mother went with it making her home in Mauritius. Licencing deals became an ever more important focus of the Janet Reger Brand and of course retail went online.

    I was now running the business and growing the licensing aspect of the business. In 2001 a design collaboration with Debenhams launched Reger by Janet Reger to an initial forty stores which was quickly increased to an all store distribution and after over fifteen years continues to be the premium lingerie brand at Debenhams.

    Despite being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991 my mother continued to display the same tenacity with the disease as she had throughout the decades with her business. It was life as usual and the collections carried on every season. Sadly in 2005 her health deteriorated rapidly and she died very shortly after arriving back at Heathrow from Mauritius.

    I had taken over running the day -to- day business now took the helm and despite the intense personal loss of both my mother and mentor, I managed to steer the company into a new direction of high end affordability.
