Exposed A History of Lingerie - FIT Museum

Exposed: A History of Lingerie

The Museum at FIT – 3 June to 15 November 2014

The latest exhibit at The Fashion Institute of Technology’s Museum is a three hundred year history of lingerie. And although I have a ton of sewing and other work to do before our upcoming photo shoot, I knew I had to take a little time out and see this exhibit. The garments on display, in largely chronological order, demonstrate the changes in form, fabric, function, and even color. It is a very informative exhibit, especially in our current era of lingerie as outerwear.

The Tartan Corset

There are no photos with those IDs or post 1551 does not have any attached images!

At the Oxford Conference on Corsetry 2014 I was proud to work with corset model Threnody in Velvet in presenting my Tartan Corset. I have long thought about doing a Celtic inspired corset and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity to see what I could come up with. Quite off my radar as I was developing this corset were two events that would place Scotland and its culture in the forefront of much of the world: First was the marketing and premier of the “Outlander” TV series based on the much beloved book series from Diana Gabaldon. Second and arguably far more important was the vote on Scottish independence.

Welcome to the first posting to the deux lunes magazine. It’s been a crazy busy time here as we are excitedly preparing for the roll out of our first deux lunes corset collection as well as the official launch of deux lunes. I’ve beensketching, designing, fitting, sourcing fabrics and embellishments, and finally starting to sew the garments that we will be presenting to you. I’m so excited for the upcoming photo shoot, and the opportunity to show off what I have been doing.
