Sculpted Leaves Bustier Top

After her first cheongsam with us, perhaps she likes our style, or she likes our service, she's commissioned us to do a corset top for her.

Known to few but our regular clients, we make things other than cheongsams. Yes, things, not just apparel, as long as the idea intrigues us enough, and time is on both the client and our side.

She wanted —in her words— " just a corset, very stiff and boned". We thought "just" a corset wouldn't do. We sat down and forced her to think about her expectations. Eventually she pointed out she wanted a simple sophisticated corset that is understated yet a statement! What contradiction like us women all are.

After much discussion, we settled on the idea of leaves, and we suggested specifically fallen leaves that looks piled on ground. The result is a hand sculpted 3 dimensional effect on the bust area for accentuation, and the special seam construction echoes the idea, together with the embedded boning, creates a waist that can't quite get smaller than this. If the bustier top sounds uncomfortable, it is, let the client remind you— 'no pain, no gain'.
