My most recent shoot was for Anna Karenina a talented London based bespoke corset maker. Not only is she the designer but also styled the shoot.
According to Annette-Carina Van Der Zaag the chief corsetier and taylor at Anna Karenina Designs & Corsetry, “All of us feel, vaguely and dimly, the infinite potentialities of life, which silently await the moment when they are to be called forth from dormancy into the clear and intense light of consciousness” ~ Cassirer
She went on to say “We all have dreams and fantasies. A world separate from the coarse reality we live in. These two worlds, these two images of ourselves are never fully apart, always longing to become one. Anna Karenina Designs & Corsetry is focussed on combining these two worlds, on making ‘fantastic’ images a fabric reality. Essential is the clients inner world of fantasy, it is my task to translate this into a longed for reality. Design should be an interactive process.”
Working from her East London based home studio she constructs the most exquisite bespoke corsets for her discerning clientele using traditional methods and the most beautiful fabrics.
