Whether you're inspired by Gothic cathedrals, post-modernism or the sinuous forms of Antoni Gaudí;
Whether you're drawn to the built landscapes of your home town or to those of a faraway or fantasy land;
Whether it's whole buildings that inspire you, or the tiny details of decoration or function;
...you are invited to plunge into the depths of your imagination and express yourself through corsetry, costume, fashion and architecture.
The biggest changes since 2018 were:
We grew from three to FIVE skill levels;
Entrants were able to include more images, and less text;
After FR Members voted for finalists, special guest judge Melanie Talkington, corset collector and founder of Lace Embrace Atelier, decided the final winners.

For anyone on the fence next year, I would say that simply making the time for yourself to make something for the contest is an act of self-care... no matter the result, that's always a worthwhile thing.
Maeri Certo, 2018 entrant
It has been a challenging learning experience and a great opportunity to think outside the box and grow as a maker... Go go go!
Cristiane Tano, 2018 winner
It's been an amazing journey, with friends along the way... This feels much more like joining an exhibition than competing. Go for it!
Jalea Ward, 2018 winner
It has been exhilarating to enter the competition and work on my entry. I would like everyone who is on the fence about entering to be bold.
To allow themselves to create, without censoring their creative brain. To be brave and share their work.
Marloes Dadswell, 2018 winner
Do it! It's fabulous!
