My name is Abigail Slone and I am the founder of Willow Layne Lingerie. Willow Layne was born in August 2017 when I finally decided to turn my idea of an ethically conscious lingerie boutique into a reality. As much as I loved purchasing pretty lingerie and browsing through mainstream lingerie stores, I was tired of the constant stream of objectifying and degrading messages that were being sent through the various forms of promotional media. Even the whole concept of not buying lingerie unless you have a partner (see mission statement) seemed a bit archaic to me. As a 21st century woman, I believe that you should be able to buy lingerie that is designed and marketed with your pleasure and comfort in mind as the top priority.
I currently reside in Columbus, Ohio where I live with my adorable puppy, Fitzgerald Grant. I don't like staying in one place for too long, though, so I frequently bounce around to as many cool places as I can. I hold a BA in Psychology from The Ohio State University and have done research with The Mindfulness Center in Washington, DC on the effectiveness of mindfulness and meditation therapy. I have formerly danced professionally with ballet companies in Florida, Alabama, and Ohio, and have also done some freelance poetry.
In my free time, you can probably find me binge watching Parks and Rec (Knope 2020!) or accidentally pricking myself with pins while designing my next bralette. Or I might be brushing up on my Italian (while drinking Chianti) so that I can fulfill my lifelong dream of moving to Italy one day. Italia sono venuto per te!
