An overbust corset in a cranberry duchesse satin with decadent embellishment. Ombré silk georgette is draped across the bustline, with hand painted lace appliqué and silk chiffon and tulle ‘blossoms’ adding further textural interest. The ombré effect is mirrored in the rear lacing closure, with the metal eyelets graduating in tone from silver to black. The corset is structured with a mix of spiral and flat steel bones, and laces shut with satin ribbon.
