MEET VIVIAN, FOUNDER OF CRISALIS
My name is Vivian, and I founded Crisalis during one of history’s most trying times—during a global pandemic!
Being confined to my home was not only difficult, but I also found it inspiring. Let me explain…
If you’re like me, you probably found yourself rolling out of bed and wearing the same clothing all day long, especially during the early days of the pandemic. But as time moved on and social isolation continued to be important, I decided to branch out.
I started to take advantage of this time alone and see it as an opportunity to explore what I can wear because no one but myself could see what I was wearing anyway!
I became curious about lingerie. I found when wearing lingerie, it created a powerful connection to my sensuality. This new-found strength caused a light to shine on my past traumas and empowered me to face my abusive past.
It wasn’t long until I felt unstoppable, enticing, invincible, and captivating. I quickly realized I wanted every woman to feel the same way. I know we’re all capable of finding that power of sensuality within ourselves.
So, I decided to start not just a lingerie brand, but a company that embodied my belief of finding that lost voice in all women. It was then that I launched Crisalis…
THE STORY BEHIND OUR NAME
Crisalis is derived from the word Chrysalis. Chrysalis is a scientific term for cocoon, the gooey home that caterpillars shed to transform into a beautiful butterfly.
Just like the caterpillar, we too need to focus on ourselves through self-reflection and facing our shadows. Once we do, we can start to forgive and fully accept ourselves.
My goal is to help women use lingerie as a tool to repair their internal wounds from trauma, whether it came from domestic, mental, emotional, or sexual abuse. Our intention is to help women heal their hatred, their scars, and their inner child.
By wearing lingerie that fits your body, I believe you can love, accept, empower, forgive, express, trust, and value yourself.
LET'S STAND TOGETHER
