Where Angels Fear to Tread - Fe
Where Angels Fear to Tread - Fe
First instalment (one of four) for Fe, a precious cincher in your colour choice, as part of our first Curated Corsetry Collection. One available.
Experience bespoke corsetry in a new way...
Following the success of our first Curated Corsetry Collection (the famous Falling Blossoms, revealed last September), we are thrilled to share our new "mood" with you...
I cannot express how excited I am to offer this experience. As shown through our first Curated Collection, the symbiosis between design house and participant can give rise to some stunning results. Personal, flattering, unique pieces, in which the creative process is as precious as the final corset. As one of our first Curated Collection clients said...
This season, our mood has shifted from fluttering blossoms to decadent rocks... With a carefree (almost foolish) nonchalance, we have created an opulent aesthetic designed to express your power and beauty. The two corsets shown above should give you an idea of where the project could go... Sumptuous duchess (available in a variety of colours) gleams beneath beads cut from pyrite (fool's gold). The crunchy sparkle of antique-gold lace trim combines with silhouettes that hint at history and heraldry, making each design your own personal expression of self.
The design shown here, Fe, is one that we can imagine as a versatile little piece. Being the baby of the collection, she is petite but powerful! We can see her in either a classic neutral or a rich pop of colour, draped in fool's gold beads for an utterly opulent way to adorn your waist. The idea is to create a piece that would be a stunning little addition to any outfit. T-shirt and jeans, sure. Sheer lace boudoir gown, absolutely. Cinching and completing a bridal ensemble, definitely.
A range of colours are available so we can certainly select something perfect for you.
We imagine this cincher with smooth and gentle lines, but do not be afraid to discuss such modifications with us. The whole point is to create something that is inescapably Sparklewren and perfectly you. Likewise, patterning and construction will be as we see fit for the given design, letting us draw upon years of experience (the corset shown above is only an example)... but if you have a preference do let us know.
The Curated Collection will be available from 8pm Monday 4th January 2016. Only one space is available for each design, as I wish to keep each piece exclusive and special. The designs will be available until midnight on Friday 8th January 2016.
Each listing is for one fourth of the total price (with the final instalment having shipping added), and this first listing functions as the usual non-refundable deposit. At this stage, measurements will be taken, details discussed, and toiles created. If you cancel after paying deposit, the deposit cannot be refunded. The second payment will be due end January, with the third due end February, and the fourth/final payment due end March. Completion of the Where Angels project is expected in March/April. Toiles are made as close to bespoke standard as possible, but this is done at Sparklewren's expense, not yours. Toiles are therefore returned to Sparklewren before the final corset is begun.
Total price for Fe, £838 including shipping. Delays can happen, and of course any delays in providing measurements, fitting photos, etc. will push back the deadline. If you have an important deadline for the project please let us know as soon as possible. Please note that we have a personal policy of making only two corsets for any one client at any time, so if you already have two orders in progress with us do message us to discuss first.
These designs are first come, first served... but don't be afraid to drop us an email before purchasing if you have any questions: email@example.com
