It’s been quite a while since I did another installment in my “Who to Follow on Instagram” series, and in the meantime there has been a veritable explosion of pretty things to look at (and, in my feed, also lots of cats). You can check out the previous installments on Corsetieres, Lingerie Retailers, and Pinups & Personalities, of course, but here’s a brand new set of corsetieres for you to scope out for inspiration and wish-listing.
@AngelaFriedman: Angela Friedman: Lingerie designer, chocolate enthusiast, lover of all things silk and lace.
This is a collection of photos of my work, travels, and cats. Sweet.
@AngelaStringerCorsetry’s amazing sheer-and-floral corset body. I was fortunate enough to model another piece from this group at 2013’s OCOC.
@AngelaStringerCorsetry: Angela Stringer: Corsetiere with floral obsession
@Boom_Boom_Baby: Check out this delightful Alice in Wonderland inspired corset – her costume design background is clear without creating a “costumey” product.
@Boom_Boom_Baby: Boom! Boom! Baby! Bespoke costume and corsetry and more. Freelance costume for TV and theatre
@ClessidraCouture made the previous version of this list, but has since changed her username. Julia is a busy bee, making corsets, selling corsetry supplies, running corsetry workshops, and of course, organizing the Oxford Conference of Corsetry.
@ClessidraCouture: Julia B: Corset maker and supplier of corsetry parts via sewcurvy.com.
@elisabetharmstrongdesign has a beautiful, fairy-tale-like quality about her corsetry and ensembles.
@ElisabethArmstrongDesign: Elisabeth Armstrong: Corsets, Costumes and Bridalwear
@FerrerCorsets: Wow, I wish I spoke Portuguese, but the beauty of Ferrer Corset’s tightlacing corsetry mostly speaks for itself.
@FerrerCorsets: Ferrer Corsets: Marca especializada na produção de Corsets para Tight-Lacing e Demi-Couture. Brasil/Fortaleza/CE. INFORMAÇÕES pelo email: email@example.com
Alberta-based @RachelHaggerty doesn’t let a little thing like a flooded studio get her down. Ivy Rose is back in business, building beautiful custom corsets and ensembles.
@RachelHaggerty_IvyRose: Rachel Haggerty: Corsetiere, wife, mother
@SkeletonsInTheClosetCorsetry: A beautiful, historically-inspired, gothic, fairytale-esque corsetiere.
@SkeletonsInTheClosetCorsetry: Sannie: Wife, Corsetmaker, addicted to silk and lace, Trying to live healthy with my husband, malmute and cat
@Sparklewren: Unquestionably one of the stars of modern corsetry, Sparklewren recently moved to a new boutique studio, aptly named Corset Paradise.
@Sparklewren: Jenni Hampshire: http://www.sparklewren.co.uk
@Vanyanis: Now’s a great time to start following Vanyanis, as she’s just begun working on a corset for Morgana (@threnodyinvelvet) – you can watch it come together, step by step, before its debut at OCOC14.
@Vanyanis: Lowana (Vanyanís designer) mostly posts in-progress photos of bespoke corsetry and apparel alongside pictures of her Ragdoll kitten, Nomi. http://www.vanyanis.net
@PopAntique, aka me.
I remain, of course, ever @PopAntique, though I confess I’ve been on Instagram less and Pinterest more lately. Who do you follow for eye candy and inspiration? Are you a corsetiere who uses Instagram? Let us know in the comments below!
