The Underpinnings Museum: The Modern Corset Renaissance

£21.00

A printed catalogue for The Underpinnings Museum’s most popular exhibition to date, ‘The Modern Corset Renaissance’.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

A celebration and exploration of the contemporary corset revolution, the exhibition shares the work of both modern corsetieres and the historical objects that left an indelible mark on design today.

38 exquisitely curated objects chart the best of modern corsetry and its historical influences. Highlights include a 16” waist corset by Dark Garden belonging to Guinness’ World Record Holder of the smallest waist on a living person Cathy Jung, and a couture creation by British designer Emiah with over 7000 hand-stitched beads, taking over 1700 hours of hand labour.

This 72-page catalogue is full of exquisite imagery of both beautiful contemporary design and the historical lingerie that influenced it, photographed by Tigz Rice.

‘The Modern Corset Renaissance’ also includes features essays by Lorraine Smith and Marianne Faulkner (of Pop Antique and Dark Garden corsetry) exploring the modern corsetry revolution.

Combining our exquisite collection images with fascinating extended essays, our A5 catalogues are printed in full colour on 130gsm silk finish paper. A must-have addition to the digital library of any lingerie or fashion history enthusiast.

60% of the profits from this sale will be reinvested directly into The Underpinnings Museum, allowing this incredible resource to remain 100% free to access online, as well as to develop new projects and exhibitions.

All catalogues are also available in a downloadable PDF format directly from The Underpinnings Museum’s digital store.
