Artifice Clothing is one of those goth-y cult fave labels that seem to have been around forever. They’ve been crafting custom fetish-inspired PVC corsets, lingerie, and apparel out of their Toronto studio since 2004.

I remember seeing their work probably a decade ago, but Instagram reintroduced us when a photo of their Clear […]

Some of you may remember it took me years to even share my real name, so it’s been quite a long journey towards this modest goal.
