Period Corsets® and politics

Pin It

Ford's Theatre celebrated the grand reopening of their theatre, and the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth with a new play, "The Heaven's Are Hung in Black". Costume Designer Wade Laboissonniere's period costumes were called "transporting elements" in the Washington Post review. The women's dresses are supported by 1860s era Julia Corsets, Hoops, and Ruffled Petticoats.

Period Corsets are political! In honor of hosting the final presidential debate, Hofstra University celebrated Democracy in Performance with a day of living history. Cheryl McCarron's costume designs include c. 1860s Julia corsets (undercover, of course).

The chorus and ballet women wear these petticoats which we custom-made in our Seattle workroom in the final scene of the opera.

In the past year or so, the Metropolitan Opera has been broadcasting its productions throughout the US in movie theatres--the goal is to bring opera to a wider audience. The latest broadcast is "La Sonnambula". Period Corsets® is very much honored to have featured garments in this performance.
