Madalyn Joy Designs is an award winning bespoke lingerie company that embraces and celebrates contemporary femininity, body positivity, and female empowerment. The modern woman who wears Madalyn Joy lingerie feels beautiful and confident while rocking classic silhouettes with delicate lacy details and modern bold lines. Today’s modern woman is complex and multi-faceted and Madalyn Joy lingerie has been developed with that lifestyle in mind.

Madalyn Joy Manzeck graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Dean’s High Honors in May 2016. She received a Bachelor of Science in Textile and Apparel Design. She was the President of her major’s student organization, Apparel and Textile Association (ATA), and was a recipient of the prestigious YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund’s scholarship. She has interned with Paul Andrew and Donna Karan at New York Fashion Week and spent the summer of 2015 as the Fabric Research and Development intern at Global Brands Group located in the Empire State Building in New York City. Madalyn has also worked as a Fashion Stylist at Michael Kors and most recently designed Miss Wisconsin 2016’s parade look for the Miss America competition that was held in September.

Madalyn launched her own fashion design blog, Designed By Madalyn Joy, in November 2016. She uses the blog as a platform in which to showcase and promote her designs. It is a fun and collaborative way to keep designing and engage with fellow bloggers and creatives.

Instead of working her way up the corporate ladder, upon graduation Madalyn decided to pursue her own designs and works as a fashion designer creating bespoke items for her own brand, Madalyn Joy Designs. She recently opened a studio space in Port Washington, WI where she works on her custom designs and meets with clients for appointments and fittings. She absolutely loves working one on one with her clients and enjoys working on the entire design process from start to finish.
