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.

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.
