Current Project - Corset


I'm working on developing some ideas for a corset design. The assignment is to design a corset inspired by Marie Antionette and 18th century France. Here are some quick Illustrator variations.

I'm working off the idea of the French Revolution. The Palace of Versailles was ripped apart by the French people in October 0f 1789. The famous hall of mirrors was left utterly shattered. For the past few months I've been collecting what I call "city glass." It's really broken glass from cars windows, etc, but I love it. I'm going to encrust the corset with city glass and colored pearls to represent both the destruction of the Palace of Versailles and the decadence which was the impetus for the outrage of the French people.

I know the designs are all so similar, but do you have a favorite?
