Black and Red Corset with fairy/butterfly wings
Here you can see where Sharon has pinned her many fabrics to a dressform to get a visual for what she plans to build. I work very much the same way and ironcially I chose the same colour pallet for my corset contribution to the Creativ Festivals "Corset Fashion Show".
In this photo the corset has been sewn together and teh wings attached. The corset is not yet finished.
Sharon created the fabric from tiny bits that she sandwiched between two layers of water soluble webbing. This has created a very organic shading and patterning.
The white cages you can see at the hip is a creative version of an historic pannier.
I can't wait to see this corset on the runway.
There will be a videographer and two photographers at the show so I'll be posting pics from the show here on my blog and the video will end up on YouTube
