World’s first trans lingerie brand aims to ‘relieve the stresses of transitioning’

At the beginning of this month, the world’s first transgender lingerie brand launched in London.

Carmen Liu Lingerie, named after its creator, aims to help transgender women feel feminine. The GI Collection, released online on April 1st, includes a range of panties, bras, and cosmetics.

“I set up GI Collection to improve the lives of our community,” Lui tells QWEERIST. “I hope to relieve some of the stresses of transitioning and avoid other trans women having some of the experiences I have had.

“Our fashion show was an incredible success and I could not be happier, I know that we empowered so many people that evening including myself.”

The collection is a ‘world first’ for transgender women.

The runway show, held at Glaziers Hall on London’s Southbank, showed off the collection for the first time alongside voguing performances plus live hair and makeup demonstrations from world-class professionals.

However, the show was met with anti-transgender protesters outside the event causing a stir. Protesters were heard singing transphobic songs, wearing offensive clothing and waving around anti-trans derogatory posters.

If anything, protesters helped to highlight why such a product is necessary. And it seems that protesting has not stopped Lui from her career expectations.

“We have an incredible year planned where we plan to grow and expand our products and services,” added Lui.
