Wedding collection

About this project

Some pieces of a sample collection of wedding corsetry and skirts, custom-made specifically for a photo-shoot.  These items are all extensively embroidered, using the structure of a silk corset to provide a firm foundation for the stitching and beading.  The techniques used are gold work and beading in the samples shown.
