MY NEWEST WORK
After moving from NYC to Paris, I started to concentrate more on the design and creation of corsets/bustiers. Over the years, I already created many bustiers and taught multiple classes in Body Contour Design. I always liked to work with metal, wood and leather as much as I like to work with delicate fabrics. I also certainly enjoy clipping the metal wires of the boning and to make the ends smoother by filing them with a metal file as much as creating the perfect fit and applying beautiful couture finishes.
Maybe, I started to concentrate more on this as a result of my move? Maybe, because a corset is easier to carry around than a gown? I don't know the answer, but I know that I always loved doing it and the more I do it, the more I love it.
Here are the three most recent examples of my work.
The first one is an over-bust corset/bustier in embroidered silk with a decorative lace embellishment around the neckline, a busk front closure and lacing in the back.
The second shows the over-bust corset/bustier in leather with a front zipper and lacing in the back.
Btw., the back lacing only has to be adjusted once in a while. The corset/bustier will regularly be closed in the front, which makes it much easier to put it on or off.
