Description

This book traces the development of the corset from ancient to modern times, paying particular attention to its popular resurgence as an outer garment from the late 20th century to the present day.

The author, Velda Lauder, is one of the most celebrated corset designers of our times. Here, she combines extensive reference material alongside a personal journey through the evolution of the corset.

Velda's enthusiasm and fascination with her subject make her ideally qualified to write about the corset from the viewpoint of an industry insider who has devoted the last 15 years to celebrating the female form through tailoring and corsetry techniques. This is her journey in her own words.
