are very proud to have been given the opportunity to interview the incredible British designer of luxury lingerie and silk lingerie, Ayten Gasson, founder of the wonderful British independant design house: Ayten Gasson.  Each day we will be releasing an intriguing fact about the designer and look further into the world of this talented designer. The interview will also be on the sheerluxurylingerie facebook page; 
Tara : Have you always loved designing and when did you start?

Ayten: I grew up in a family full of designers so have also been influenced by them. I remember making dresses for my Barbie dolls from scraps of silk that my mum had saved for me. I went on to study at the London College of Fashion and then graduated from Central St Martins with a BA (hons) in Fashion Print in 2002. Upon graduating I thought it would be fairly easy getting a job in the fashion industry but found a lot of companies had moved from the UK to Europe. I didn’t want to move away from England so decided to set up my own company with the aim to try to source as much as possible from UK companies and to keep all my manufacturing here.
