About this Project
I started this company because I was tired of the cookie-cut formula bras that you see in most stores. Cheaply made and lacking the art of couture craftsmanship. It’s a shame that lingerie has become disposable. I wanted to create unique designs that offer comfort, sophistication and sensuality, with a fit that gives back beauty as well as support. I hope to inspire confidence and a feeling of luxury that amplifies feminine beauty. My wish is to inspire women to embrace their bodies and adorn themselves with high-end, comfortable and desirable lingerie that becomes a treasure to cherish.
Filiz Rezvan designs are carefully handcrafted here in the USA.
What is unique about this collection?
I want to bring back an era of femininity and well made couture craftsmanship. Having purchased designer lingerie many times, I find that beautiful designs often lack support and adequate coverage. I felt that this had to be addressed in this collection. I want to give an air of confidence as well as security. Bras that enhance breast health but are also beautifully designed. Knickers that have an air of excitement hark back to vintage bespoke design.
Each design is innovative and also use plastic under wires, for better breast health, so no more poking metal wires!
Why I need your support?
I have invested countless late nights and weekends to design and craft each design to final finish. I am now seeking seed money to make this personal venture into a commercial reality. I am extremely organized and an experienced in running successful businesses. I am using my creative talents together with my business sense to create jobs here in the US. I have learned many valuable lessons but the one that endures is ‘to never give up’ that’s when those who are weak fall away, only those that strive to move forward succeed and one can do it with grace, integrity and a true passion of destiny.

Risks and challenges
I pride myself in overcoming personal challenges. I learn about myself, face my fears, and do it anyway. This design process has been a challenge but I’m doing something that feels right. I have worked so hard to get to this point and challenged myself in so many ways. There is a place for luxury wear that feels great, that gives back, that does not use cheap materials, that provides local jobs, that has integrity and that inspires both women and men.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
