Dinner Gala.

Champagne Goes to Oxford - Part 2

Saturday night there was a dinner gala with the option to wear a corset and get as dressed up, or not so dressed up, as you’d like. I decided to wear my own creation, the Fleur Du Soir Corset with a black pencil skirt and heels.

Miss Tosh Performance.

Champagne Goes to Oxford - Part 2

Miss Tosh, the starlet of burlesque, honored us with a special performance followed by a very beautiful and inspirational speech. She talked about her “sparkly” ensemble and how she spent about 2 full months crystalizing her garments with over 60,000 stones, if I remember correctly.

Underpinnings Museum.

Champagne Goes to Oxford - Part 2

We had the honor of studying historical corsets (stays) from the Underpinnings Museum with Karolina Laskowska. These stays are dated from the 19th- 20th centuries. We were not able to touch any of these stays without gloves on. Examining them with our eyes and taking pictures was good enough for me! Here are just a few of my favorites.

Oxford Conference of Corsetry.

This opportunity is one I will forever cherish. I am so grateful to have met so many like-minded and talented people who have inspired me to push my creativity further. I am back in my design studio with my mind over flowing with ideas and cannot wait to get started on my next projects. The Oxford Conference of Corsetry has helped me grow professionally as a Corsetiere and as a Designer.
