I first discovered seamed stockings in my teens in the late 1980s when there was revival of 1950s style fashion. It wasn't until the mid 1990s that I found out about Fully Fashioned Stockings. While working at the fetish boutique Skin Two in London I heard others talk about the fabled 'Aristoc Harmony Points' which were the last Fully Fashioned Stockings made by a mainstream hosiery comapny in the UK, while in the store we used to import 'Sweet Caroline' nylons, followed by Eleganti.
When Skin Two decided to focus on their own label, and discontinue stockings I was stuck. How could I afford my beloved Fully Fashioned Stockings? I had a good relationship with the factory so I thought why not set up a website and maybe if I stock the nylons, I'll actually make enough money to pay for my own stocking habit?
I'm the first to admit that it wasn't the most ambitious business plan, but it certainly worked!
