(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Patrice Catanzaro, the French fetish designer, discussed his new collection, Tome 12, scheduled to launch at the upcoming Salon International de la Lingerie in Paris, January 24 through 26.
“In Tome 12 there will be many nice surprises,” the designer told BODY. “This collection will be a showcase of our know-how. Tome 12 will be deeply creative, and each theme will be developed. It will include creations with a very ‘haute couture’ orientation, long dresses, very structured blazers. A theme on X-men will also be developed and of course another fetish theme. It will include short and long dresses, sets, corsets, and many other things as usual.”
Catanzaro explained that “The inspiration for collection Tome 12 is Fantastic, Super Heroes. We’ve been working on the idea to make everybody feel unique. The main tendency is overall to new materials and fabrics that we developed ourselves, tattoo fabrics, laser perforations”
The designer discussed his history with trade shows. “I first took part to Salon International de la Lingerie in 1994, at that time we were considered as aliens. Our booth was at the far end of the show, not visible at all. If they could have placed us in the restrooms, they would have done it! We had to fight to bring fetishism out of the ghetto where it was. Fortunately, things have changed since then.” In addition to the January Paris show, Catanzaro plans to attend “ILS in Las Vegas, Erofame in Hannover, and we also intend to go to other shows all over the world according to the opportunities. We are studying shows everywhere to know which ones could suit us.”

It’s not totally finished yet, we are working on translations and referencing of resellers all over the world. This website is interesting because it gathers 5 different worlds, each collection has its own universe. When clicking on a collection, you’re redirected to a completely different world.
