Established in 1958 as the Corset and Brassiere Women’s Club, Inc., in 1963 the group was re-invented as the Underfashion Club — a not–for–profit, intimate apparel industry organization dedicated to education. We support new talent with scholarships and internships and we offer seminars, panel discussions, and networking opportunities to industry professionals.

Today, the Underfashion Club members work in all facets of the intimate apparel industry: foundations, daywear, sleepwear, robes, and loungewear. Our membership represents all areas of the industry: retailers, manufacturers, textile mills, fiber producers, and trim suppliers. Our members hold positions in all departments: management, marketing, merchandising, sales, design, education, and human resources.

Our annual Femmy Gala, a premier event in the intimate apparel industry, recognizes and celebrates the achievements of intimate apparel industry leaders worldwide. Honorees are chosen from all sectors of the business and have included Designers Donna Karan and Josie Natori, retailers Neiman Marcus and Victoria’s Secret, manufacturers Carole Hochman Design Group and Maidenform, and industry notables Eileen West and Elle Macpherson.

Proceeds from the Femmy Gala are distributed by our SAIG Committee (Scholarships, Awards, Internships, and Grants) to deserving students who pursue college–level intimate apparel related courses. The Fashion Institute of Technology and the High School of Fashion Industries in New York City are our primary beneficiaries.

Additionally, we have established a chair at the Fashion Institute of Technology to make sure that graduates entering the world of the intimate apparel industry are fully qualified.
