Aimee, BA Hons, company director
Growing up, and growing curvier, I struggled to find clothes that I liked and even harder to find clothes that fit my figure. So I turned to altering clothes to suit my own size and style. But I was still never happy and tried a few corsets that I bought on the high street or online. Corsets are something that I’ve always had an interest in, the shape they give the wearer, their beautiful silhouette in general and the skills that went into creating them. So I decided to learn how to make my own.
Having a background in fashion and textiles and having previously gained an A level, Degree (BA Hons), and a teaching qualification, I wanted to improve and build upon my expertise. I was lucky enough to be given the chance to study the skills and techniques of corsetry at the prestigious London College of Fashion.
During the course, I fell in love…and that is where today’s business began. I started out making them for myself and friends, some of which are transgender, all of which being different shapes and sizes. All helping me further improve my skills as none of them were that magic ‘standard size’.
All of my garments are designed and created for each individual customer. My bespoke corsets can reduce your waist from 4 inches and are suitable for tight lacing. The bones are either solid or spiral steel and busks are metal. Each corset is hand finished to a high standard and can be dressed up for a special occasion but also dressed down for day to day wear.
