The Eye

12 3 4 5

 

It is said that the eyes are the mirror to the soul (les yeux sont le miroir de l'âme). I was thinking about this quote when I first saw this year's theme "Intersection of Light, Black and White". I wanted to create something with a mirror, integrated into the corset, as the light. Different black and white fabrics are combined here to create the form of an eye, our principal light captor. It is embellished with a small amount of sparkles on the white lace  to catch more light, and the iris is created with white translucent chiffon fabric and grey lace. All these elements intersect with each other, pointing to the centre of the corset, which symbolizes the soul. It reflects our environment. And that's why it was a real challenge to photograph it...

For those who are interested in the technical details, the mirror is glued to a little panel of horizontal boning to the front of the corset, where vertical boning underneath help to keep everything flat. The mirror is secured in place with the decorative chiffon fabric. The rest of the embellishment is hand sewn to the corset.

  This is such a unique and interesting idea, well done! I am particularly fascinated by the last picture, it is really hard to capture the reflection of a mirror in photography, and that photo does that so well, it's stunning!

  Thanks, yes, the photoshooting was an epic moment... It's not easy to pose and pay attention to the reflections, but coordination with my husband who did the photography assistant worked well...
