Sian Hoffman. Designer Sian Hoffman showcased her sensual body-sculpting garments inspired by the silent movie era at the Lingerie Edit in January. Pushing boundaries between fashion and the erotic, her corsetry is timeless and alluring. Based in the UK and stocked internationally in premium boutiques, Hoffman has collaborated with lingerie brands such as Lascivious and has had her garments worn by Kate Moss in British Vogue.
Kiss Me Deadly. For AW15, Kiss Me Deadly continues to produce steel boned corsets for waist reduction, but with contemporary touches like sheer powernet sides and zip closures so that consumers can match unparalleled shaping with convenience and comfort.
Bordelle. Bordelle, famous for its bondage-style lingerie, is continuing to see a growing interest, both from consumers and retailers, in its signature Angela corset dress, worn by the likes of Madonna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Beyonce. The garment is handcrafted from customised elastic panels and is finished with 18-karat gold-plated accessories.
Bluebella. British boudoir brand Bluebella has developed a range of provocative, yet feminine corsets and basques over the last couple of seasons, including Vivienne, a lace basque featuring dramatic black panels, delicate floral lace plunge cups and a blue satin trim. The garment is also made with four suspender straps.
Vollers Corset Company. Vollers Corset Company has been making corsets in the UK since 1899, making it one of the oldest corset makers still in existence. This season, the brand had created the Lycra Lace Corset with a front fastening metal busk, a structured sweetheart neckline, 10 spiral steel bones and a lace-up back. The handmade corset cinches the wearer in at the waist and enhances the hourglass silhouette.
