Charnos SS11 Photoshoot


Check the pics from our glamorous SS11 shoot with our gorgeous Charnos model Olivia (who is not only absolutely stunning as you’llsee, but so bright and sweet, it's enough to make you weep). The shoot was held in a derelict building in London that had creaking floor-boards, corrugated iron walls and a dead tree amongst other décor highlights. Even though it was hard work and time-pressured, the team handled it all with grace and style and as you’ll see in the SS11 preview all the hard work was worth it!




Charnos went to MODA on 8th/9th/10th August! Our second time since the venue for the UK’s largest Lingerie tradeshow moved to the NEC and we’re all looking forward to proudly launching our SS11 collection to the industry’s top lingerie buyers. The show lasts for three days and when you work hard, you play hard and with a party on the Monday night, I’m sure we’ll have some pictures to display on here in a couple of weeks..!

Charnos Celebrates 75 years


In March, Charnos Lingerie was invited to attend a party held at the Natural History Museum, to celebrate 75years of the Charnos Brand. The Charnos brand was founded in 1936 by Charles Henry Noskwith (Char...Nos!) who had a unique passion for high quality raw materials, new technologies in yarns and knitting manufacturing techniques - making innovation the heart of the family business ethos. This ethos stuck and when the business embraced lingerie in 1958, as a natural extension to it's hosiery business, the brand developed a unique place in the hearts of women across the country, responding to their needs and delivering exquisitely designed yet highly functional products to support them throughout their day and throughout their lives. This was celebrated this year with a terrific party and catwalk show, with the Natural History Museum as a backdrop. The son and indeed Chairman of the Charnos Brand until his retirement attended the party with his wife, both of whom still live locally to the businesses that manage the Charnos brand today - and they were thrilled to see the life and verve felt by both those managing the brands today and of those wearing the brands today!

Young Talent - Shaping the Future


We joined forces with De Montfort University last year to give students the opportunity to come up with their own shapewear capsule collection design, to complement our current Hourglass collection.

The standard was high, but there was one design that the judges were really impressed with; winner Hannah Thomas, who produced a “stand out” shapewear collection aptly named “A Girl’s Best Friend”.

Hannah will join the Charnos design team here on a two week placement at the end of April 2011, and her collection will be developed and made ready for production.

You can follow Hannah’s time here, as she will provide daily blogs of her experience, here at Charnos.
