Who would have thought a chance encounter at Glastonbury in 2010 would lead to a love affair, an entrepreneurial partnership and the creation of a seductive brand and unique pleasure product?
This is the story of LUVSENSE london...
Elizabeth and Neil meet at Glastonbury where he tells her about his secret idea for a mirror which adults can enjoy in their bedrooms.
Elizabeth & Neil start to research Neil’s idea, and Neil sketches the initial concept of what will become the LUVVU mirror. They commission the first professional product designs and call the first prototype The Sexsee!
Elizabeth and Neil meet the owners of Coco De Mer and Lovehoney, Neal Slateford and Richard Longhurst. Neal Slateford goes on to support Elizabeth and Neil with his advice and connections.
Neil continues to develop the functionality of the mirror, including its removable balls which enable its height and angle to be adjusted.
Elizabeth focuses on brand identity; she finds out that the Greek definition of kaleidoscopic is 'observation of beautiful forms', and works with a designer to create the iconic LUVSENSE london kaleidoscope logo.
Elizabeth and Neil’s daughter is born.
With help from interior stylist Amoria Bridle, erotic designer Adele Brydges, and lingerie courtesy of Loveday london, Elizabeth and Neil transform their living room into a beautiful boudoir. They work with a film crew to shoot the LUVVU mirror in the seductive LUVSENSE london film.
Elizabeth and Neil work on finalising packaging designs, product instructions and manufacturing plans so that they can launch the LUVVU mirror in 2015, 5 years after they met.
