D’Angel announces Xposed lingerie line
D'Angel continues to spread her wings with the announcement of her Xposed lingerie line.
The business venture is in alignment with her expertise in the fashion industry, from being a model to operating her own boutique years ago. It also coincides with the success of her 2020 single Exposed, which accompanied a sexily clad D'Angel starring in the music video.
"From the inception of modelling, I've always embraced my femininity and the skin that I'm in," D'Angel told THE WEEKEND STAR. "I was crowned the sexiest female by the people's STAR and I'm always deemed as the sexy woman, evident with Exposed reaching 3.6 million views. People always want me to come back in the clothing business and look to me for style, fashion and body, so I said with the success of this single from my EP, I'm going to come out with a lingerie line."
She added that she also found it challenging to find a lingerie brand in Jamaica which embodies body confidence and body positivity, elements she said Xposed captures.
A year in the making, D'Angel said she met with several suppliers, testing samples for quality, design, texture and fit until she found the right supplier.
"You want to be sexy in the bedroom and you want to feel sexy for you so I considered body type, shapes, bringing women's confidence back and just embracing and loving who you are. I'm also catering to all sizes and have up to plus size," she said. "The experience I had with my store really prepped me for this moment, so I think I have a good sense of style and what suits who best in terms of body type, shape and figure. I used that knowledge to choose my lingerie as well."
She did a casting call in Atlanta in the summer where models were "carefully selected based on their body size and shape suitable for the line."
"We did the photo shoot and the website and everything is ready to launch and I'm so super excited about this. Everything turned out just the way I wanted it. Already, the buzz is amazing since I dropped the news on my social media platforms and people are already enquiring about when it will be available for pre-order," she said.
D'Angel is set to release her debut EP Exposed in 2022.
