Holiday gift guides!

It's that magical time of year again... With the holidays fast approaching, this is our busiest season for selling lingerie - and it's not just for your sweetheart!  Consider sending your dear sister a silk robe for the holidays, introducing your best friend to the luxury of French lace, or gifting a friend who's a new mom with a sleep mask.  At Angela Friedman, we're sure you'll find something special, whoever you're shopping for.

This year, we've grouped our gift guides by personal style to help you sort out the best gift for each woman on your list.



For the classic sophisticate, nothing but streamlined folds of silk satin and a dash of sheer mesh will do.  Entertain her metropolitan side with something sleek and chic.

From left, clockwise: 1. Laurel slip (black or purple),  2. Lavinia gown (black or ivory),  3. Louisa bralette (black, navy, stormy blue, or burgundy), 4. Musette robe (black or purple),  5. Minuit bralette, 6. Minuit garter belt,  7. Minuit knickers



She's adventurous and fun-loving, always ready for an impromptu night on the town.  Wherever she goes, this thrill-seeker loves to bring the laughter and good times with her!  For the punch-of-color lover, only the brightest and boldest will do.

From left, clockwise: 1. Lavinia corset,  2. Lavinia slip (navy as shown or stormy blue),  3. Elle bralette,  4. Elle garter belt,  5. Elle knickers,  6. Holly robe,  7. Enchanted Forest bralette,  8. Enchanted Forest knickers



What about the woman who wants it all with a splash of ruffles and a dash of embroidery? She's a frill-seeker, of course!  Entertain her lush personal style with layers of French lace and sheer folds of tulle...  With frills and lace, you're certain to please her more indulgent side.

From left, clockwise: 1. Giselle bralette (black or ivory),  2. Giselle garter belt (black or ivory),  3. Giselle thong (black or ivory),  4. Giselle robe (black or ivory),  5. Vivian babydoll (pink or blue),  6. Natalie longline bralette,  7. Natalie high-waisted knickers,  8. Dentelle slip,  9. Clair de Lune corset



Never to leave out the simplicity of traditional feminine designs, there's a special place in our hearts for those soft and sweet ladies.  Adorning themselves in gentle blush pinks and the delicacy of tiny bow detailing, these women know something about a timeless style that's always en vogue.

From left, clockwise: 1. Marianne bralette,  2. Marianne knickers,  3. Clair de Lune robe,  4. Margot bralette (black or ivory),  5. Margot knickers (black or ivory),  6.  Musette chemise (black or pink),  7. Louisa bralette (ivory or pink),  8. Pascaline ruffled tutu skirt,  9. Sleep mask gift set (pink or blue).





Wishing you a holiday season full of joy, warm company, and a little silk and lace!

The Firebird Collection

Introducing our newest lookbook... The ballet inspired Firebird Collection for Autumn / Winter 2016, featuring stunning images of dancer Samantha Schaubach by photographer Curtis Brown.




Inspired by the designer's past work in the world of dance costumes, Angela Friedman has introduced her new ballet-inspired lingerie collection.  Many of her previous designs have taken inspiration from the delicate world of the ballet, but never quite so strongly as this.  The theme of the Firebird rings true, and this is no depiction of a frail flower waiting for her cavalier to rescue her!  Our model instead portrays an untamed creature who is fiercely independent and absolutely enthralling to the audience.




Whether you fancy yourself a bit of a ballerina or have two left feet, you can tap into the magic and intrigue of the theater with this collection.  From dressing room to curtain call, The Firebird Collection takes you on a journey via the transformative power of the stage and the beauty of Russian folklore... Follow this dancer as she prepares for the intensity of this prized role and then catch an ethereal glimpse of her performance as the Firebird.





This range features new color ways and designs that will become staples in your boudoir wardrobe.  Imagine stepping out of bed to slip on a silk robe over your nightgown, or lounging around on a Sunday evening in your favorite bralette and tap pants...  These selections in deep burgundies and cranberry reds are perfect additions to a holiday spree or for Valentine's Day or anniversary gifts; and the classic black designs will easily complement your existing lingerie wardrobe.




Slip into something more comfortable, and welcome to the glamorous world of the ballet - courtesy of Angela Friedman lingerie.  Shop these looks or learn more about the Firebird Collection here.

Rihanna as Marie Antoinette!

From the newest issue and cover story of fashion magazine CR Fashion Book... “Marie Antoinette was possibly the first trendsetter,” says Carine. “She launched fashion trends—maybe sometimes ridiculous ones, like a boat on your hair—before she became, finally, the fashion victim too…I think it’s a very funny issue and it’s my favorite.”

Carine carefully selected a modern queen of sorts, famed musician Rihanna,
to portray Marie Antoinette in this stunning photo shoot with Terry Richardson.

And for her royal wardrobe?  An Angela Friedman corset, of course!


Get Rihanna's extravagant look and shop the Veronique corset by Angela Friedman, available in ivory or black silk with delicate lace detailing.  Sizes XS - XL (approximately US dress sizes 0 -14), $515.

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.
