The Moth corsets are my personal project for 2017/2018. Whilst the Butterflies are an opportunity to play with some richly opulent colours and embellishments (classics like black lace and sparkle), the Moths are intended as a cohesive collection of couture-level pieces that I hope to use in many photoshoots and possibly other projects (a book? an exhibition?) before finding them their forever homes.
Expressions of interest and possible reservations are welcome with up to three instalments possible, email to discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org
An overbust corset with smooth historically-inspired lines, made from a silvery silk duchesse and deep gold hip and bust gores. Embellishment to be discovered.
This Silver and Gold corset may change dramatically, but in the first instance I have quite a clear vision for it.
Symmetric gold lace with metalwork “prongs” mounting fireball pearls along the top edge. Other pearls and goldwork check beads would be scattered throughout, with the whole thing rather heavily encrusted and two thinned down ostrich feather “feelers” tickling the collarbones and shoulders.
I am not holding too tightly to the idea, however, as it may be months and months before I get a chance to tackle this piece. I’m excited to see where it could go though.
With a 21″ closed waist and a tall 16″ front, the Elizabethan-inspired bustline (reminiscent of our Pyrite and Unicorn corsets) will create an elegant line with modest coverage. We have also added bust gores, however, to make this corset slightly more round through the bust in contrast with the flattened front of designs like Pyrite and many of our other Moths.
Full measurements will follow at a later date.
