Visit to Belgium September 2009
Marjorie Thompson, MD of Chantilly, was invited to visit the headquarters and design centre near Ghent in Belgium of Van de Velde who design and manufacture premium brands Marie Jo and Prima Donna lingerie. The visit included a factory tour and an opportunity to view the new ranges due in Spring/Summer 2010. Marjorie was very impressed by the attention to detail and their focus on quality and Marie and Prima Donna bras are renowned for their ability to combine support with comfort and fashion with beautiful fabrics and materials.
Most of the bras produced by Van de Velde have over 54 individual components compared to around 15 in the cheaper bras. Marjorie's 25 year experience in the lingerie trade has been driven by a mission to help women in the North West experience the comfort and support offered by a professionally fitted, quality bra and she is as determined as ever to reduce the rather discomforting statistic that over 70% of women in the UK wear the wrong size bra.
Marjorie is pictured with Dirk de Vos who is the Van der Velde Sales Director.
