I just received some more photos from my summer NYC shoot with Lars Kommienezuspadt over over the weekend, and I had to share them here straight away. I can’t help but fall in love with Lars’ photography, even when I’m not the subject. He makes all his models – including the nonmodels like me – look exquisite, and the makeup artist he chose for this shoot, Brown Paper Doll Beauty, […]

Today’s guest post is by Sam Conover, the owner of Broad Lingerie, a specialty bra and swimwear shop focusing on full bust sizes in Toronto. Broad Lingerie’s mission is to normalize full bust sizes, encourage body positivity and to make lingerie shopping simple and accessible. When she’s not in Bra Boss mode, she spends her time making art and thinking way too much about synthetic materials. Once upon a time […]

Note: Some photos below may be NSFW. Truth be told, I’m not quite sure where to begin with this article. I feel like I should start by thanking Sweets, the lingerie blogger (and awesome human being) who came up with this whole idea, but a simple ‘thank you’ doesn’t quite convey the depth of my feeling here. The photoshoot in this article is one of the most special experiences I’ve […]

With the holiday season is officially upon us, we thought we’d do something lighthearted and fun for a change of pace. Thanksgiving is just days away, and what better way to celebrate than with witty illustrations of food clad in lingerie! If you’re a fan of burlesque, you probably love its cheeky attitude and irreverence as much as you love the costumes. Kellyportfolio translates this unabashed joy of the burlesque […]

While in the UK for the Oxford Conference of Corsetry, I also managed to fit in a shoot with Tigz Rice Studios, who you may remember from What Katie Did’s recent Spring/Summer 2015 Lookbook. Tigz is a well-respected fashion and editorial photographer who’s worked with everyone from Benefit Cosmetics to Cosmopolitan Magazine. I was delighted to hear that she had time in her schedule to work with me as it’s […]

A few months ago, I went to the UK for bit of touristing and to attend the Oxford Conference of Corsetry. While there, I also had a couple of photoshoots with two photographers I’ve admired for ages. One of them was Morgana of Threnody in Velvet/Iberian Black Arts. Morgana’s face is world famous for her campaigns with some of Britain’s most well-known lingerie brands. However, many people are unaware that […]

The 2015 Oxford Conference of Corsetry fell a scant five weeks before my wedding date. Flying in the face of good sense, I attended anyway. I had other reasons to be in England, and one of them was the undeniable pleasure of spending an extra day with my corsetmaking colleagues, taking pictures in the Sparklewren showroom. Sparklewren, Karolina Laskowska, Vanyanís, Emiah Couture, Holly Rafaela, and Pop Antique (that would be […]

The fashion world loves its designers! These celebrity-status artists excite and inspire their followers each season. But lingerie design is a different animal and though many designers end up expanding into other categories such as shoes, housewares, and fragrances, sometimes they are hesitant to enter such a technical niche market as lingerie. Lucky for us, some of these talented fashion designers have been able to successfully make that transition into […]

As an indie designer myself, I love seeing what my peers are up to in the world of corsetry. Recently a new designer has emerged: at 23 years old, Rosie Denningham of Rosie Red Corsetry & Couture is already well on her way to the top. Her design voice is unique and easily identifiable, and she’s already had the honor of dressing one A-list celebrity. Rosie’s curve-friendly designs are like […]

With the Oxford Conference of Corsetry coming up this weekend, England is flooded with corset makers and enthusiasts. Today I spent the day in Sparklewren‘s studio, aka Corset Paradise, with Jenni “Wren” Hampshire, Lucy of Lucy’s Corsetry, and Lowana of Vanyanís. InaGlo Photography was also present to shoot a few styles for Vanyanís, and Sparklewren’s Jenni Hampshire got behind the camera for several impromptu photoshoots with me as I tried on […]
