Carol Stella

— Corsetière & Designer

At Champagne Corsets and Designs, we are on a mission to bring back bespoke.

We believe that in life and in fashion you can create exactly what you want. We each have the ability to shape our reality and our bodies into exactly what we want them to be… and fashion is a natural extension of this.

We believe nothing is impossible. We don’t subscribe to the beliefs that you need to conform to a specific size or fleeting fashion trend. We encourage, and are delighted by breaking down stylistic barriers and creating something that’s truly one of a kind.

We believe that every piece we create is as beautiful and unique as the wearer and we believe in the impact we make in the lives of our clients.

Once you go bespoke, you’ll know the difference.

Award winning designer Stella has had a love affair with lingerie for as long as she can remember. Stella studied Intimate Apparel at the Fashion Institute of Technology in the heart of New York City’s garment district and received her BFA in 2003.

After graduating, Stella spent years designing lingerie for many well known labels. With a passion for design and a desire to learn, she would deepen her expertise in fit and design techniques for both mass produced and hand made pieces, though bespoke corsetry always remained her true passion.

In 2012, Stella opened a boutique in Montclair, NJ and Champagne Corsets & Designs was born. The boutique offered a collection of specialty lingerie brands in hard to find sizes and (of course) a large sewing studio completely dedicated to bespoke custom corsetry. In 2015 Stella created remote corsetry and set off on her journey to bring back bespoke.
