A *woven* corset on display at the #MiederMuseum in #Heubach 😍 There are no seams or panels in this corset, it's one piece woven into shape. I was so thrilled to be able to see this in person as part of the Structuring Fashion conference.

πŸ–€ #fallforcostume Day 7: First πŸ–€
My first day filming the #VanyanisaCorsetCourse - an online version of the Beginner's Course I've been teaching for the past four years. So exciting to finally be getting this filmed for all of you who can't travel to Healesville to learn with me in person. The first day of filming with @acfoley went well, and I'm really proud of how much detail I'm including - this won't be a basic video course with bad camera angles and missing information that leave you with more questions than you started with. The VanyanΓ­s Course will have professional videos and will include *all* my best tips and tricks and is being created so that you can learn easily and efficiently. Join our #VanyanisSchoolofCouture VIP to be the first to hear when course registration opens (link in profile) πŸ–€

Catching up on @redthreaded 's #fallforcostume challenge. Day 6: Inside.

My lovely corset making student, client and friend @melbournetintype trying on the #VanyanisRubyCorset at our #10yearsofvanyanisparty earlier this year. I absolutely loved how well this corset fitted Astrid, especially considering it's a RTW piece and not bespoke. I put it down to the 7panel pattern I spent a couple of *years* developing... πŸ–€ This pretty little showroom is actually a small corner of our studio that we set up so there's somewhere to browse our ready-to-wear collection and try things on. We don't have a regular 'shop' -clients need to make appointments to visit, but we always do our best to fit in (pun intended.... *groan*) with your plans. .

#fallforcostume Day 5 - Outside!
A behind-the-scenes photo from the photoshoot in Scotland I shared on Day 3. I win bonus points for looking like I'm floating down the street πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜… Anyone else love wearing over-the-top things in "regular" places or situations?

Ok, so I'm a little late to @redthreaded 's #fallforcostume party but it looks like so much fun so I thought I better join in 😎 I'll use this as my catch up post πŸ–€
1. Intro : I'm Lowana, the lady behind Vanyanis. I design and make bespoke wedding gowns and corsets, I teach corsetmaking out of my studio (with an online course coming soon!) and I'm also one of the mentors for @foundationsrevealed . I've been sewing since I was 16 and making corsets for 15 years (eep!).
2. Space - A few years ago I spent four glorious days in Scotland (where I did this photoshoot with @somnolentimages ). There was just something about the location that felt peaceful and *right*. It was like all my daydreams had turned into reality and I felt like I'd finally found a place that looked like how I felt. I'm not sure if that makes sense or not, but ever since I've found myself seeking out spaces for photoshoots that really embody the "mood" or "atmosphere" I'm hoping to convey. *rambles on*
3. Red - this red gown with matching corset was something I made myself after my dear friend Erika talked me into actually making myself something (as at that stage it'd been over a year since I had as I'd been using alm my creative time on client work). It's made with a metallic red lace and a lovely delustered satin I found in my stash. I made the flower crown as well πŸ–€

This is a close up of a book cover. You'll know by now I love all things gold and opulent 😍 I love going on my annual #CorsetPilgrimage as it gives me the opportunity to take time out, to be inspired, to just...drink it all in (so to speak). Down time is so important for us creatives. This book was on display at the #MiederMuseum in #Heubach (with the visit being part of the #StructuringFashion event).
