Victoria Whiteland - Couture Corset Designer - A Life in Stitches
I design corsets. I find them utterly fascinating garments as they tell such a vivid story about us as women.
The sculptural power of corsetry; the ability to shape our bodies is part of this story.
I believe in using the power of corsetry for positive change: I am inspired by the idea that I am part of life-changing stories; many women say that my corsets have changed their life and their perception of themselves.
I enjoyed a rural childhood and was free to use my time in my own way. Most days I climbed to the bell tower with my books, and indulged my love of literature and art. I took great delight in the imaginary, the fabulous and the factual... I enjoyed my lofty view of the world!
