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.
@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.
@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!
Marianne Faulkner is the designer of Pop Antique, a clothing and corsetry line specializing in sustainable materials and comfortable curves. She is based in San Francisco where she earned her MFA in fashion design at the Academy of Art University, and has been a columnist at The Lingerie Addict since 2011.
