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).
