We both studied at Parsons in NYC (that is where we met) and were very lucky to study abroad in both Paris and London during our university stint. Our craft is predominantly corsetry, but honestly, we are inspired by everything and want to try anything. Almost all of our fabrics and materials are deadstock/vintage, which in turn inspires the end product, so we are constantly evolving. Something we want to play with next is mohair corsets! The other day we were discussing how great it would be to produce a whole corset runway show around stripes; huge, colourful, taffeta ones versus super, intricate pinstripes! We love bows, block colours, knit, monochromes, under-boob, exaggerated waists, boning etc… We also both love shoes so there are lots of exciting things to come! Ossatura was born in June ‘22 so this is only the start.
Between us we also dabble in knitting, film photography, crocheting, fashion illustration and styling!
