'The future of lingerie and bodyfashion, feels even more inclusive today, with genderless collections and sizing structures changing, and the increased acceptance of lingerie and comfort wear existing in our everyday outerwear wardrobes. A new generation of designers will continue to push the technical aspect of digital design and as the metaverse develops, we will no doubt see consumer habits adapt to this new frontier'.
