End of an era
So I have some pretty big news. It's a bit of a bittersweet announcement to be making, and one that I've been putting off for weeks now. If life goes on as intended, then the next 6 months will be the last ones of the Karolina Laskowska lingerie brand operating as it is now. The plan is in September for me to move to Norway, where sadly I will be unable to trade from, for lots of complicated reasons.
Of course, it goes without saying that I won't stop creating; I don't think wild horses could keep me from doing that! But the brand will no longer be creating any ready-to-wear or stock styles. I will still be able to take on a select number of bespoke clients a year, but only for very particular and high-budget projects. The majority of what I create will likely be ridiculous hobby projects, along the lines of pieces like the Violente outfit and Gothic Princess corset (which of course, will all still be documented online for you to enjoy!).
The next 6 months will be a combination of winding the business down and having fun with new projects. It will mean that any made-to-order styles (which is in all honesty, most of my products now) will not go on sale again and these next few months will be your last chance to order them.
It's been an incredible 5 years of trading, and I am indescribably grateful to all of the amazing customers, fans and friends that have made this lingerie brand possible. I won't deny that it will be sad to leave this behind (and who knows, maybe I'll be able to return to it one day!), but I'm also excited for what the future holds. Thank you all for your incredible support!
