Burlesque themed corset, I designed and completed this for part of my foundation course; with inspirations from ‘Marie Antoinette’ and historical garments I came to form a highly ornamented and lavish corset. I used a combination of Satin and lace trimmings and a mix of decorative beads, and for the ruched shoulder pads, I had used beads, buttons and lace giving a luxuriant pile effect and an enhanced femininity.
The colour palette includes soft pastel shades of crème, white, silver and gold.
The silhouette is very stiff because of the boning, very difficult to sew into!
