I’d like to say 1935, it was the late 1920s, maybe 1937. The women were all wearing corsets and dresses with the sleeves down, so there’s a little extra something there. There are some women who I know of who think that it is a sign of bad taste to wear a corset. The truth is there really is nothing wrong with wearing a corset, especially if you’re into it in that way, but there are many who can’t care less, and it just does mean you’ve fallen far behind in time as far as fashion is concerned.

As they say, a fashion is a collection of ideas. They all work together to give a complete idea of what you’re going for – so that’s why I really loved looking at the design of it.
Is there something about the design of the corset that makes you feel uncomfortable about it?
No, no, no. Actually, it wasn’t something I was uncomfortable about at all, it was a very natural reaction. I was born with my face, I grew up with the style of the corset, but it was actually something my Dad had had all my life.
