To corsetra I will see if I can put up some 50s inspirited design and pattern ideas in the future, Merry Widows and other shape wear. To d_gold London Collage of Fashion now does a Contour Fashion course. The tutors at De Montfort ran around like headless chickens when they found out.

To galadriel Follow your dream but to the London Collage of Fashion or Central St Martins, two of their students came first and second in this years “Triumph International inspiration competition”. De Montfort, third place is no place.
