I’m very happy to introduce these 2 brand new couture corsets made as a contribution to the MUDAC museum in Lausanne (Switzerland).
The exhibition, called “Nirvana”, will happen from October 29, 2014 to April 26, 2015.
You can find more details regarding this wonderful event HERE.
My first contribution called “Spring Love” is an overbust corset made with black cotton coutil, pink/fushia silk, and Swarovsky cristals.
This “Spring Love” corset is front closed and have 6 suspenders at the bottom edge.
The second contribution called “Jungle Fever” is a corset dress, inspired from Mr Pearl corset pattern and shape.
This corset made in a white floral patterns coutil has deep red stitches and seams.
Embelished with several red, back, and orange cristal beads, a major piece of anaconda leather designs a heart on the front.
As well as my friend Amanda Lepore, i also laced up and pictured my other friend Connie Fleming, who was (and still is) a supermodel, love her so much ! She knows Mr Pearl forever, they were roommates back in time, and Pearl also made that cowboy corset for Mugler on Connie.
Now here are a few photos where i had fun making 2 outfits for Connie
Daphne saved Isabella Blow’s collection when her friend sadly passed the way.
Here is a interview that i find very interesting, where Daphne explains why she did this, why this exhibition, who was Isabella.
I must admit i’m not expert in fashion, and i don’t know much about the who’s who and people’s life.
But from the few i saw from Isabella, i can perfectly understand the connection between the two ladies, beyond their friendship.
It’s just pure art, and showing a vision you have in your heart, assuming your personality, i think it’s just soooo beautiful !
I agree with Daphne, fashion is art, even if it has to meet business to survive, and i wish more people would see it this way !
