Here’s a gorgeous little sneak preview to the German breast cancer research, curvy girl calendar project! The project has been organised by Silvana Denker, who also models in the calendar. This pin up style photograph was taken by Oliver Denz, modelled by plus size model, Mealea Schäfer. The corset is a bridal design made from ivory satin with beautiful pearl and sequinned appliqué. The design is also available in rouge red, purple and black! More information coming soon, where you can get your own calendar to support a good cause!
I designed a new corset especially for plus size model Silvana Denker. The stunning images taken by Oliver Denz of Silvana wearing the corset will be added to a new calendar project called CURVeveS, featuring curvy girls modelling beautiful designs, including some of my corsets! All the money made from the sales of the calendar will be donated to German Breast Cancer Research (Brustkrebs Deutschland e.V.) For more information about the project please check the CURVeses facebook page! When the calendars are finally printed, be sure to purchase one!
The corset I made is from rouge red satin, covered with a black organza damask print, fully boned and a strong steel busk. Lined with black satin. This design corset is also available in a deep purple and underbust.
I love this book “1000 Dessous” from Taschen! As you can see from the photo, this book has been used a lot and it’s been with me since I was 16. I’ve always used it for reference to corsets and vintage lingerie pictures. The book’s jam packed with fantastic imagery starting back from the Victorian ear up until the 1990′s, ranging from corsets, bras, suspender belts, knickers, stocking fetish, rubber and bondage! With lots of vintage advertising and old school porn from the roaring 20′s! One page that has always made me laugh, is of burlesque dancer Jennie Lee (left), the author Gilles Neret comments under the photo “In the 1950′s, in United States, the fashion for abnormally large breasts reached epic proportions, foreshadowing the current fashion for silicone implants.” My question is: Are her boobs really that abnormally big?
This book is perfect for lingerie and corset lovers alike and a little bit perverted. It definitely isn’t something for the faint hearted! The book can be bought from Amazon for those who are curious!
I recently got involved with a charity project called CURVeveS. The project is a pin up style calendar made up of images of gorgeous curvy woman, which all the proceeds go to Brustkrebs Deutschland eV (German breast cancer research). The woman behind it all is German curvy plus size model Silvana Denker, who will also be stepping in front of the camera to model one of my corset designs! I donated a few more corsets to the charity project and here is a sneak preview from behind the scenes! The photos were taken in the beautiful location of Anna Van Neerhave Foto Film Location near Dusseldorf. More photos coming soon!
