Canadian label Fortnight Lingerie is a fave among the well-heeled for undergarments that strike an ideal ratio of sexy-without-the-tart and comfort-without-the-granny-panties. The super-cute, and always stylish, designer duo, Christina Remenyi & Alison Chown, share the playlist that often inspires every stitch & seam. It's no surprise that their selection has a modern yet old soul vibe; an appropriate soundtrack to the fresh vintage glamour that is Fortnight.

"We are constantly listening to music in the studio. It keeps our minds company while helping to drown out the constant hum of sewing machines. This list is a mix of most played over the years and new favorites we will play on repeat." –Alison
