The exquisite work of master corsetiere Laurie Tavan is well known and we are thrilled that Laurie has agreed to join the team for 2017 and lead a practical workshop for us, demonstrating different historically inspired corset silhouettes and including an exploration of the use of unusual combinations of fabrics, hardware, and supplies to transform these historical ideals into something new and fresh. We will see the progress and choices made along the way in one of her recent projects from start to finish. Read more about what she plans to tell us here: http://buff.ly/2lbaQpB #sewing #corsetmaking #fashion

So excited that the wonderful Miss Tosh will be joining us all the from Los Angeles! She is an *incredible performer* , a lovely model and one of the most gracious people you'll ever meet. Not to mention that she is a fashion design graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an amazing fashion designer and artist. Can't wait for you to meet her in Oxford this summer!!! Here she is wearing a @moruadesigns corset and bra which she embellished in ridiculous amounts of Swarovski crystals.

Having sketching skills means you can record your ideas when inspiration strikes. If you get inspired on the metro or while watching a film, tack down your ideas as they come, then refine them later. A sketch can be much more than a croquis – you can use illustration to map your construction process for unusual designs, sketching and annotating flat pattern pieces for seam allowance, seam type, construction order, and finishing methods. Marianne Faulkner owner of Pop Antique and Associate Design Director of Dark Garden Corsetry and Couture, will be teaching us the basics of fashion illustration at OCOC17.

Geraldine Geoghan of @valkyriecorsets was the first corsetière to photograph her work on @missdeadlyred. And what a revelation that was for the world of corsetry! She is gorgeous but she professional, sweet and and seems to be made for corsets. We are incredibly please that she will be joining us at the conference this August. Here she is wearing a Valkyrie stunner photographed by Julian Julian Kilsby. #ococ17 #missdeadlyred #valkyriecorsets #corsetry #curves #tinywaist

Looks a bit like one of the booths at the "Forth Quad" the little pub at the college, where we retire for a relaxed after party each year. Such great times sewing the night night away! #sewing #vintagesewing #makingcorsets "ococ17

.... and while we have modern, contemporary corsetry in the JCR, we have antique corsetry in the Little Library. Here is a picture of Steph Selmayr's extraordinary antique collection which she brought to OCOC15. This is only a tiny part of it! Steph shared so much of her knowledge with us and some pieces were even available to try on! This year we have Karolina Laskowska bringing her Underpinnings Museum to the conference. I can't wait. Karolina is a modern lingerie designer with a fixation on details. She will be revealing many secrets at OCOC17. Come and join us to find out what! Tickets on sale here: http://buff.ly/2lrbD20

We love looking at inside of antique corsets! So much to learn from them. It was surprising to us when we first looked at 19th century corsets at how thin and light they are, but also how you can see the stitching of the flossing on the inside. Modern corsetmakers are obsessed with perfection and hiding all stitching but here you can clearly see that our forebears were less concerned with this...... #corsetry #oldstuffisthebest #corset #antiquecorset #corsetmaking #ococ #fashionhistory #fashionconference #costumehistory #fashionhistory #corsetstudy

One of the most fun parts of the conference is getting to try other corsetiere's work, and seeing others in your own corsets! Such fun. Here is the lovely @odettecoquette in a @moruadesigns corset! #corsetry #oldstuffisthebest #corset t #corsetmaking #ococ #fashionfun #fashionconference #costumehistory #fashionhistory #corsetstudy
