Even the most hard-to-please gourmets admitted that this was one of the finest editions of Ultra-Lingerie since its creation. For the duration of a catwalk show, the most determined competitors left rivalries behind and unanimously praised their colleagues’ ingenuity and know-how. The codes of lingerie were overturned, opening up new paths to be explored.
