Ingenuity of l’Artisan du Corset

Trained at l’École du Corset, Blandine, throughout her training,
never stopped being led by innovation and creative spirit associated to the corset maker’s craft,
never forgetting high quality.

Always searching for creativity and to step aside historic corsetry, l’Artisan du Corset
imagined to revisit the great classics of the clothing and to give them a new corseted elegance.

These innovative models are made possible thanks to complex assembly techniques.

The requirement of a rare craft

Corset maker is a registered profession at l’Institut National des Métiers d’Art in France.
We are about thirty corset-makers in France today.
This craft requires a long apprenticeship and specific techniques of patterning, assembly and fitting in the nearest millimeter.
Patience, logic and accuracy are the key words of the profession.

A corset needs an average of 30 hours to be tailor-made.
L’Artisan du Corset attempts to guarantee an exceptional quality for each handmade piece,
to the slightest details.
It is in this purpose that her suppliers are now the best of the Parisian market: Mokuba, Shindo, Socolatex...

History of the corset

Born at the Renaissance as a derivative of the armor, the corset gradually enters the daily clothing of the women
and models their bodies according to the beauty standards of this time.
Formerly meant to be worn underneath clothings, the corset became a top garment:
it does not hide anymore and claims to be a real fashion accessory.
L’Artisan du Corset is inspired by these multiple evolutions to create
contemporary pieces, comfortable and thought for women of today.
