I was born and raised in former Czechoslovakia where I studied the fine Arts of Fashion and Design. However, it wasn’t until I moved to the United States that I fell in love with designing lingerie, shapewear, and foundations. Over the last 18 years, I’ve enjoyed and dedicated myself to working and gaining valuable experiences with several large US-based companies. I began my career as a Foundations and Shapewear Technical Designer and Patternmaker for Cupid Foundations. Several years later, I worked as a Technical and Creative Designer at Dillard’s and most recently I worked as the Product Development Manager at Chico’s FAS/Soma. I have created Dare & Co. with a simple concept; lingerie so beautiful you’ll want to show it. In fact …I dare you to! My focus is to create patterns and help you to make beautiful handmade garments to express yourself. Your satisfaction is very important to me. If you have any questions about the sizes or need help with buying the material, please let me know, and I would be more than happy to help you!
