Couture corsetier Chrissie Nicholson-Wild combines elegant engineering with creative costumery in her custom designer corsets and fantasy outfits.
" I had a waking dream where I had made a white corsetted gown with a huge train that was encrusted with crystals, sequins and feathers all over it with traces of silver lace appliqué twinkling from underneath the feathers. As the lady in the gown started to move away the whole dress morphed into a living white peacock with a glittering body and crystals for eyes. Only fragments of that dream remain in my waking mind, but it inspires me still."
With over a decade's experience, drawing inspiration from Thierry Mugler, Charles Frederick Worth and the work of the legendary Mr Pearl, her work has graced Alternative Fashion week, television, art galleries, film premiere red carpets and glamorous cabaret stages alike Chrissie effortlessly combines old fashion glamour with modern pattern cutting techniques to bring a contemporary edge to classic design.
