Dita Von Teese has opened up on finding inspiration for her latest Von Follies lingerie collection. Looking to old vintage finds to source some ideas, Dita went through her personal lingerie collections to brainstorm, and was also very inspired by old pin-up art and even men's magazines from 30s and 40s. She commented that she made old ideas more wearable and modern for her own line: ''It is based on times past - not replicas of vintage lingerie but finding ways of making it more functional and wearable. I'm just trying to show women that you can have little bits of luxury and glamour in everyday life and these are things that actually serve a purpose with your shape and how you feel in clothes. It's inspired by vintage pieces that I've collected in the last 23 years. I also have a lot of vintage pin-up art, old catalogues, and men's magazines from the 30s and 40s, so I get a lot of ideas from those.''

Dita believes her lingerie love can be credited for even launching her career and her first job was in an underwear store. She feels that designing her own just feels like she has come "full-circle" and she believes it feels right: ''My love of lingerie is what first sparked my entire career as it is. I started working in an underwear store when I was 15, and that's the real reason I started re-creating pin-up photos. I was already dressing retro style so my love of lingerie carried over to retro lingerie and I began to collect. When I had the opportunity to make my own designs, it was really like a sort of: 'Wow, full-circle moment.'''
