Welcome to the launch of our new blog. We want to let you all into the worlds of Deborah Brand and corestry and have great content to share with you. First up, we’re taking you back to our best fashion show yet!
During London Fashion Week, LDF hosted the Deborah Brand fashion show at Mayfair’s No. 41 Club. The club came to life for a fashionable night of shows and champagne.
In the build up to this show, we were inspired to accentuate the curves of the female form to highlight the classic hourglass figure. This inspiration was translated into the collection through the contour and structure of each look. The aim of this latest show was to remind people the art of corsetry in the world of fashion by showcasing our creative expansion from purely bespoke corsets into corsetry-inspired garments. Corsets and waist training are becoming more relevant in pop culture, making this a prime time for such a creative venture.
The catwalk was an array of leather, lace and femininity. A host of beautiful models sported the capsule collection of skirts, gowns and corsets, the gem of the collection being a one-off bespoke corset made in collaboration with artist, Paul McGowan. McGowan often uses his art as a tool to provoke political change in support of vulnerable people. For this corset, McGowan designed a vibrant, psychedelic skull print, which was then hand-basted onto the most complex structure of a Deborah Brand corset to date – a truly electrifying piece.
Through the show, Deborah Brand conveyed the importance and relevance of corsetry in fashion and marked a thrilling future for the brand.
