“As day subtly turns to night and the hours steadily string by, the dream, at once airy and elegant, comes within reach. Pleasurably palpable.” – Carine Gilson
Carine Gilson’s story harks back to the 1990s. A freshly-minted graduate of Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied fashion, Carine Gilson discovered Maille France, a small Brussels atelier that manufactured fine ladies’ underslips. She immediately fell in love with the world of lingerie.
Carine Gilson decided to acquire the workshop and, with sheer dedication, set out to work on silk, lace, and exceptional materials. In the fashion of the boundlessly creative and refined lingerie creations of yore, Carine Gilson embraced this new adventure, taking her passion to the next level to create unique, breathtaking pieces in her Brussels atelier.
The designer soon launched her couture lingerie line, Carine Gilson, a synonym for a world filled with incomparable beauty.
In no time, the press and finer stores from Japan, England, Italy, and America came calling. Buyers from renowned stores recognized the rare quality of these creations, which conjure the bygone enchantment of times past within our changed, modern world.
The prestige of Carine Gilson’s lingerie has grown quickly thanks to the unwavering excellence of her creations. In the House of Carine Gilson, every piece is lovingly crafted by hand. Perfection and finesse espouse rigor and passion. Lace incrustation is raised to an art form.
2018 saw Carine Gilson soar to new heights, with a redesigned logo that captures her very essence: two light, delicate wings of a bird on the verge of spreading in a gentle, feathery stroke.
Her new boutique on Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels was designed by architects David & Nicolas who, together, created a subtly polished space celebrating Carine Gilson’s unabashed femininity and unparalleled refinement.
Symbolic of this ascent with wings aloft, the ready-to-wear and couture collections have been developed to take on an evocative and delicate turn. Here, the exceptional always takes center stage. In her incomparable signature style, Carine Gilson now designs for day, evening, and night.

Satinex NV was established in 1956 with “weaving of nylon fabrics” as its activity, but in the early 1980s the company gradually transitioned to the production of women’s clothing.
Following a tragic accident in 1985 involving the business manager (Eric De Frene), we developed the business further with 3 brothers and became a trusted partner at European level.

Wie zijn we?
Woody ken je vast wel van de kleurige pyjama’s en slaapkleedjes. Het merk pakt elk seizoen uit met pyjama’s en homewear in drie dierenthema’s. De drie dieren komen tot leven op de pyjama’s, slaapkleedjes, het bedlinnen, de zwemkledij en de pantoffels.
Het Belgische pyjamamerk, met hoofdzetel in Gent, viert in 2019 reeds zijn 25e verjaardag. Sinds de oprichting van Woody in 1993 zijn originaliteit en kwaliteit de stokpaardjes geweest in het ontwerp- en productieproces. Uitmuntende kwaliteit is reeds sinds het prille begin ons stokpaardje.
Vandaag is dit niet anders. We ontwerpen en produceren bij Woody nog steeds met dezelfde mindset. Natuurlijk zijn de ontwerpen door de jaren heen veranderd maar bij Woody kan je vandaag nog steeds rekenen op dezelfde vaste waarden: dierenthema’s, strepen in alle vormen en maten en natuurlijk glow-in-the-dark!
Woody is erin geslaagd om met haar collecties ieder lid van de familie te kleden in originele en kwalitatieve night- en homewear. Met Woody Original, Woody Boyzzz en Woody Girlzzz biedt het merk verschillende stijlen voor verschillende smaken, maar wel voor àlle leeftijden. Bovendien beperkt Woody zich niet enkel in night- en homewear. Ook ondergoed, zwemkledij, leisurewear en accessoires vind je terug in ons aanbod.
Naast fysieke winkels in België, heeft Woody ook een eigen webshop waar collecties online kunnen gekocht worden.
The Woody Group, een bedrijf met een hart voor mens, dier én planeet
Bij Woody hechten we enorm veel belang aan de kwaliteit en duurzaamheid van onze pyjama’s. We vinden het dan ook super om te zien hoe onze Woody-pyjama’s jarenlang worden gedragen, en zelfs worden doorgegeven aan zusjes, broers, neefjes en nichtjes. Tegelijkertijd zijn we ons bewust van de negatieve impact van de modeindustrie op onze samenleving.
Duurzaamheid reikt voor ons dan ook veel verder dan enkel de kwaliteit van onze kledingstukken. We kiezen ervoor om de Woody-collecties te produceren en te distribueren met respect voor mens en milieu.
