Seeking models for a special project!

We're currently seeking models to participate in a special project to showcase our range of sheer lining choices to match different skintones.  Did you know that we offer 4 different choices of "nudes" to serve our customers?  We want to make sure that no one is left out when it comes to complexion matching!

In particular, we're piloting these 3 new colors to better serve women of color:

Walnut - rich chocolate brown, suitable for the darkest complexions
Chesnut - mid range warm brown tone, suitable for a wide range of WOC
Maple - softer pale brown, suitable for lighter WOC or for more tan Caucasian women

(I understand that these 3 colors will not cover all skintones. Please understand that this is a
pilot program, and its success will determine whether we can add more options!)


In order to show our customers these new colors on a range of different women (and body types!), we're now seeking models to help demonstrate.

Models will receive one pair of silk or lace Angela Friedman knickers, free of charge. There are different styles available, including both briefs and thongs - see options below.  In exchange, the models will provide 2 clear photographs of the undies for marketing and promotional purposes- models may remain anonymous by not including the face or by featuring a detail shot.

To apply, please send your name, portfolio (or link to your Instagram account), and your dress size to us atinfo@angelafriedman.com Feel free to send along any questions or concerns as well.  We'll try to make our decisions very soon!  <3

Model requirements:
-Over 18 years old and located in the US
-US dress size 0 to 14
-Must submit a portfolio or sample of work to be considered
-Must be able to provide neat and well-lit photographs that clearly show the item
-Must be able to provide photographs within 1 month of receiving merchandise




To apply, please send your name, portfolio (or link to your Instagram account), and your dress size to us at info@angelafriedman.com.  Feel free to send along any questions or concerns as well.  We'll try to make our decisions very soon!  <3

Trunk shows and private events

At Angela Friedman, we're always exploring new ways to bring our customers access to the fabulous lingerie they love so much. That means that we've opened up our sales channels to include the internet, wholesale to retail stores, holiday pop up shops and markets, and now private events!

We believe that lingerie shopping should be luxurious! So leave the worry to us and host your own private shopping event - all you have to do is open the door and have a great time.



Whether for a birthday, anniversary, bridal shower, or pre-Valentine's Day soiree, a private event is the perfect way to shop for lingerie in the comfort and privacy of your own home.  You'll be free from the constraints of crowded dressing rooms and bad fluorescent lighting, and you'll have access to new designs that haven't yet been released!  If you might be interested in hosting a private event of your own, please send your inquiry to info@angelafriedman.com.


Trunk shows

One of our favorite ways to introduce new designs to our clients is the private trunk show! It's the perfect opportunity to spread the lingerie-love with friends, and creates a wonderful atmosphere of female solidarity and laughs along the way.  We've even been known to send fabulous lingerie to our hosts following very successful events!

We'll schedule a 2 hour time frame for the event, which will be hosted in your beautiful home or hotel suite.  You should have at least 8-12 confirmed guests to ensure that the event is both fun and fruitful.  As Angela Friedman is a luxury brand, we do ask that you familiarize your guests with our company and price point in advance.

Our favorite arrangement is for the host to provide light refreshments and perhaps a little bubbly!  A few bottles of Prosecco will go a long way in helping to encourage friends to try on something new and daring!  During the event, Angela will be on site personally (with an assistant for large events) to answer any questions about the brand, fabrics and designs, or size and fit.  We'll also have catalogs and look books to peruse and offer a free gift with each purchase.

For 2 hours, you and your friends will be able to try on current bestselling designs and see our newest releases.  Garments may be purchased and taken home that day, and we will also show off new designs that will ship to customers within the 2 weeks following the event.  Complimentary gift wrap and free shipping for made-to-order pieces are included with each purchase, and we accept both cash and credit cards.

To book your private shopping event, please contact us at info@angelafriedman.com.




Private shopping

For our very best clients, we're happy to provide a private shopping service upon request.  We've received much positive feedback; our clients love the opportunity to shop without ever having to leave the home!  It's also a great opportunity to try on a new style or compare colors with your existing wardrobe.  There is no fee for this service, although we do ask that you be prepared to make your purchases at the time of the appointment.

If you are interested in private shopping, we will speak with you in advance to discuss your size needs, personal style, and budget.  Then we'll schedule a 1 hour time frame for the designer to personally visit you with a selection of lingerie, corsets, and lounge wear according to your needs.  Angela will also have a selection of look books and catalogs for you to peruse, should you like to see more styles than what a single suitcase may permit!  During this time, Angela can offer fitting and style advice, as well as measure for custom creations.  You may purchase pieces to keep with you that day or place orders for any sizes or colors that we don't have in stock.  We accept cash or credit cards, and turn-around time for made-to-order pieces is generally about 2 weeks.

After your private event, we'll be available to answer any follow-up questions via phone or email.  You may even like to schedule quarterly private shopping events to add new pieces to your wardrobe for each coming season!  To book your private shopping event, please contact us at info@angelafriedman.com.




Private events with Angela Friedman are currently open to the following markets:
New York City metropolitan area
North Carolina
Los Angeles and San Francisco area - coming soon!

(If you would like to see an event elsewhere, feel free to contact us and be put in our database. We just might expand to your area next.)

It's almost that time of year again!  The Autumn chill creeps through the air, we share delicious meals with family, we cuddle up in cozy blankets, and we shop for lingerie...  Right?!

This year's gift guides will be broken down by price rather than style, making it easier to pinpoint the perfect present for your budget.  (I've always found Cora's gift guides on The Lingerie Addict particularly helpful, so I'm going to borrow that idea!)  Now you can search for gift-friendly lingerie items and accessories without all of the hassle of searching through pages of results per category.

I would love to hear what you think of our guides this year! Comment below if you think we've missed anything.

Inventory reduction & free shipping!

Because things don't always go according to plan, we have an influx of extra inventory in the studio this week.  (A recent collaborative project fell through unexpectedly, so a large amount of merchandise that was tied up for several months has been returned and we have nowhere to store it all!  It's all brand new, unworn, and ready to ship immediately.)

It's never fun to see beautiful designs just sitting in a dark closet, and I would much rather see them in your happy homes being worn and enjoyed!  We're offering free shipping (including international shipping) on all of these in-stock designs - with insurance included.  Why not get a head start on holiday shopping or update your autumn wardrobe?  This offer is valid through 9/15/15.

To make your purchase, simply email us at sales@angelafriedman.com with your selection, and we'll send along a paypal invoice for the total.  Please note that this stock is limited and once each style or size is sold out, it will not be replaced for this deal.  I will try to keep this page updated as inventory moves.  Thank you for your understanding!
