'Janus' Sheer Organza Ribbon Corset By Evgenia, 2016, USA. The Underpinnings Museum. Photography by Tigz Rice.

Date: 2016

Origin: United States

Fabric: Organza and silk satin

Brand: Evgenia


A ribbon style corset made of silk satin and patterned organza ribbon with floral motifs. It is structured with a metal busk fastening at the centre front and steel bones at the side and centre back panels. The centre back fastens with satin ribbon lacing through metal eyelets. This garment has a relatively mild silhouette, and is intended as a lingerie piece rather than as dramatically shaping foundationwear.

The Evgenia brand began in 2011 under the name ‘Honey Cooler Handmade’, initially specialising in one-of-a-kind lingerie pieces that utilised the technique of insertion lace appliqué. After rebranding as Evgenia, the label continued with its lace appliqué techniques in full collections rather than individual garments. Designer Stephanie Bodnar studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in California, USA. She was a designer in residence at the Fashion Incubator program at Macy’s Union Square in San Francisco from 2014-15, and is now based in a studio in West Marin.
