This piece was inspired by a desire to create the optical illusion of lace against skin within a corset. It uses antique mantilla lace over sheer corsetry mesh. I chose to use black rather than nude coutil for the bone casings and front/back panels as I think this frames the lace beautifully. The name Albertine comes from the way this reminds me of Victorian era mourning wear (a saucier modern version, obviously!) and so I chose to incorporate the name of Victoria's husband, Albert, into the name of this piece.

Thank you :) I really love this as it was originally a very badly damaged mantilla. I'm glad I got to give it a new lease of life.

Oooh, this totally appeals to the Dita Von Teese side of me. Gothic, vampish, lacy and racy - it's everything a vintage girl could wish for! A stunning piece of work, and great styling for the photos, too!

Thanks!
One of the things which made me want to achieve this aesthetic is this piece by Gaultier, which was modelled by Dita I believe :
