A few years ago I was backstage, fitting the lead vocalist of a band with a corset.
One of the members observing this asked what my profession was.
When I answered that I was a corsetmaker, he replied that I reminded him of the mad hatter from Alice in Wonderland. I was flattered and intrigued by this unexpected comment and decided to create this corset.
The decision to use black and white as my main colors, as well as placing the tulle lace heart near the breast area was carefully done in order to mimic a playing card. In order to make the heart stand out, I chose black for the center front piece. This was also done to pull in the viewer's eyes. Diamond stud busks were used to create a contrast with the black center front piece. Vertical stripes were used to achieve a slimming effect.
The corset was accessorised with the clock rabbit in mind. I used a working pocket watch, added a rabbit charm on the chain and a pink heart as an accent color.
