Lina Teixeira, who grew up in Canada, and now resides in Dunedin, is a local fashion designer who's taking it national with her couture designs. Lina's been featured in Atlanta's Fashion Week, Our Canada Magazine, and most recently Dunedin's Wearable Art fashion show.
Lina, and model Bianca Persechino, also made an appearance at the grand opening of Strike A Pose photo studio, aka Betty headquarters. In the top right photo above, Bianca models the custom corset, skirt, and fascinator featuring the studio logo, my logos, and that of my studio partner, Mims Von Schuhe. The corset is made of shredded paper, and the logos are hand-painted.
Just a few months later, I had the pleasure of attending Lina's grand opening of Studio Six One Seven in Clearwater, FL. I look forward to watching Lina grow as a designer and businesswoman.
If you're interested in commissioning Lina for your own couture wear, just head to linateixeira.com. Her corsets would be perfect for a shoot with Boudoir Betty!
