Story behind Marlena

After searching and searching for just the right name for my line I decided to do a bit of research on the name Marlena. After I found out about it's dual meaning, I decided to roll with it!

Directly from my Spring 2013 Lookbook:

Marlena designs and markets beautiful lingerie for women with curves. The origin of the name Marlena is the combination of Mary (purity) and Magdalena (an unholy lady). Marlena interprets this dichotomy by letting each individual choose whether to be naughty or nice. Each piece is carefully hand crafted to ensure the highest quality of construction. Marlena is moderately priced, perfect for the woman who loves to spoil herself. The company is a LLC based in Tacoma, Washington.

Oh and did I mention that Marlena is my middle name? My mom swears when she looked it up back in the day the meaning was "tower of strength" but here's the modern info I found.
