Asymetrical corset

Michelle is modeling an a-symetrical corset made from scraps of red and black fabric that were layered. The corset is an over bust on one side only, the right side is an under bust but she's not "exposed" as she's wearing a black bra.

Definitely not for the shy or conservative.

Aboriginal Inspired Corset and Hat

Gina had the perfect poise for this outfit of red waist cincher with glass beading detail that matched the beading on the dress. The outfit was made and designed by Jeff Chief and the stunning hat was made by Thea Crawford. Jeff lives in Saskatchewan and Thea lives on the east coast but that didn't hamper their collaboration.

Corset made from ties

Karen Merriam modeled a corset made from vintage wool and ties made by Norma LaChance of Winnipeg for the Creativ Fesitvals Corset Fashion Show - produced by Farthingales.

This corset was flawlessly finished inside and out - the vintage ties created a great retro look.

Wife and husband in amazing corsets

Wendy Bendle and Stephen Bendle grace the runway in corsets both were designed and made by Wendy.
Wendy's corset is made from black organza ribbons woven to each panel of her corset. Shephens is black pleather with silver button detail and an embroidered celtic knot that was designed by Wendy and machined freehand.

Black and white leather

Melanie Farrar Jackson is the designer, maker and model of this unique corset inspired by 18th century shape and 21st century materials. Her look was completed by a black leather pleated skirt, white patent boots and gloves made by Tami MacDonald

Is it a corset or is it a suit jacket?

It's BOTH!

This suit was modeled by Terri during the Farthingales Corset Fashion Show but the incredible design and expert construction was all done by Jennie Wonnacott.  The jacket has corset details built right in complete with boning and back lacing!  It had a matching skirt and a custom made hat by Helen Flower

Edwardian Corset w a modern twist

Mary Logan completed this corset just days before the Farthingales Corset Fashion Show. The shape is Edwardian but Mary's creativity was seeking more experssion so she appliqued a complete scene. There's water, rain...created by sequins, a light house, mountains and a tree in the foreground - the branches reaching for the sky and creating a full canopy of leaves of ruched silk  over the chest area. The pink and gold shot silk background makes for a beautiful sunset feel.

Drgonfly corset

The dragonfly and the black latice work is hand made bobbin lace made by Cindy Rusak. Cindy made the corset for her daughter but it's being modeled here by Kathi during the Farthingales Corset Fashion Show. It's a complete outfit with floor length shot taffeta skirt but I've zoomed in on the corset for the incredible details
