At Period Corsets® we are all about collaboration. We had the pleasure of once again working with Eric Winterling Inc., this time to create some truly outstanding and unique new corsets for the Thom Browne Fall 2014 runway show.

We made our c. 1890 Theodora corset shape in an innovative quilted net material, provided by Eric Winterling Inc, that was commissioned for the Thom Browne's Fall 2014 fashion show.

The finished design created a structured but delicate look that seemed like it would be soft and flimsy but was astonishingly strong. The innovation was in the the fabric, 2 layers of net expertly sewn in a grid pattern, which made for a surprisingly durable piece that held the shape of our corset pattern perfectly.

We created five corsets in total, two navy blue, a beautiful dove gray, and two creme. They were a lovely match to Browne's color palette of warm grays and blacks and wonderful contrast to his menswear style tweeds and tailored garments.

Thom Browne is a multi-award winning designer, including two wins for Menswear Designer of the Year by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). His designs are truly inspiring with his use of unique textiles and amazing silhouettes. What an honor it was to be part of this collaboration.
