Escort-Turned-Lingerie-Designer Zahia Dehar Is Finally Set to Make Her US Debut

Last March Zahia Dehar--the former underage prostitute at the center of that infamous footballer scandal in France--launched a ready-to-wear line of lingerie, after showing a "couture" line for three seasons. We knew she was planning to bring her line of cheeky underthings to the US and now it's happening: Come fall, you'll be able to get her meringue pasties stateside.

Last March Zahia Dehar--the former underage prostitute at the center of that infamous footballer scandal in France--launched a ready-to-wear line of lingerie, after showing a "couture" line for three seasons. We knew she was planning to bring her line of cheeky underthings to the US and now it's happening: Come fall, you'll be able to get her meringue pasties stateside.

Both her ready-to-wear and couture collections will be available exclusively at high-end vintage mecca Decades in Los Angeles, according to WWD. "She’s fascinating. She’s like a Barbara Walters special,” Decades' co-founder Cameron Silver told the trade. "The fashion world is so filled with outside-the-box personalities--who I think tend to be the ones that succeed the best--and I think she’s a perfect example of being outside the box but really very committed to creating this brand.” Hollywood starlets looking for naughty underpinnings can snag pieces at Decades starting in October.

In the mean time, Dehar is in full-on growth mode. She is launching a pop-up shop in Paris with a “pâtisserie-boudoir” theme at L’Eclaireur (it was partially inspired by Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette). The pop-up will be open from Monday through October 15. You'll be able to get accessories to go with your lacy thong too--like a heart shaped clutch covered with "icing" flowers. Dehar's goal is to take this bedroom/bakery theme to New York (please, let it happen!) and Tokyo next, then eventually open freestanding shops.

Is the US ready for Zahia?
