Supporting conservation in a very unconservative way

DUS_GuysNightOut1Twala Intimates is proud to support Ducks Unlimited, the world’s leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Since its inception in 1937, the organization’s projects have been responsible for almost 13 million acres of restored, protected, and enhanced wetlands and other wildlife habitats.

Twala Intimates will be a featured supporter at the upcoming Ducks Unlimited Seattle Chapter‘s annual ”Guys Night Out Dinner and Auction”!   As part of the evening’s festivities,  five
stunning models will take the stage to model some of Twala’s latest lingerie designs. And, because we believe that every man should pamper his lady, Twala Intimates is donating as an auction item the chance to purchase a lovely private shopping evening with champagne for six at Twala Intimates’ Design Studio!  For more information about the Ducks Unlimited event: http://ducks.maxworks.org/events/

Exciting changes at Twala Intimates and Heidi Fish Swimwear!

As many of you are aware, Twala Intimates and Heidi Fish Swimwear have shared a store space in West Seattle for a few years now. We are excited to announce that we are expanding operations as of the end of this month! Starting September 1, Twala Intimates will be relocating to a non-retail space in the Urban WORKlofts in the SoDo neighborhood, while Heidi Fish will take over the entire existing space.

Heidi Fish will continue business as usual, operating the retail space featuring her line of couture swimwear as well as select Twala Intimates items, and the same store hours and custom fittings by appointment. Heidi also plans to expand on her own offerings to include resort and lounge wear, and will continue to stock select Twala Intimates items. “A lot of women who come into my shop are looking for a special swimsuit for a resort vacation,” says Heidi. “Being able to also provide them with resort and lounge wear as well as intimates, will be a big plus.”

In Twala Intimates’ new SoDo space, Twala Coggins will focus on the online business as well as her made-to-order services. The new location will include a design studio and a fitting salon, as well as ample storage for her online stock. “I am excited for more studio and storage space for my growing online business,” says Twala. “I will still be offering private fittings by appointment for my made-to-order lingerie as well as using my new space for special events.”

We’ll show you photos of the new space soon!

Our gift was hand-delivered by the director of the just-released family movie Wiener Dog Nationals, which stars Ms. Fairchild. Twala Intimates had the pleasure of attending the screening of movie, and were thrilled to learn from her publicist that she loved her Twala Intimates gift! Congratulations, Morgan, on your long and successful career, and for gracing your lovely self with our creations! (photo on the right shows the gifted piece).

Twala Intimates featured in Northwest Hope and Healing Fashion Benefit!

Twala Intimates was honored to participate in an amazing and important event, the  Northwest Hope and Healing  STYLE ’13 Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good! Fashion Show Benefit, an annual event now in its 11th year. The organization’s mission is to provide financial assistance to women in need who are battling breast and gynecological cancer. This year’s event was a huge success, raising $120,000 for patients in need.

The evening featured a runway show with the best looks for spring from some of the hottest boutiques in Seattle, including Twala Intimates. Fashions were modeled by breast cancer survivors, including Bonnie M., who modeled a Twala Intimates creation, a lavender “Lounger” dress (pictured in black on our website) that you can see in the video below. Twala received a lovely note from this lovely and courageous woman after the event,

“WOW!  What an amazing experience it was to *model* for you. Thank you so VERY much for your generosity of talent, heart, and hope.  I didn’t think I would/could “saunter out” on the catwalk in such beautiful lounge wear – But I DID…who knows what I might do next?(!). One quote I like that is fitting is, “Your mentality IS your reality.”  Because of you, my reality (of what I can look like) has expanded. Cheers, Bonnie

Thank YOU, Bonnie – you are a true inspiration!
