We had a packed house for Cinched: Historic Corset and Modern Corsetieres on a Wednesday evening at Swift’s in the East Village! Thanks to everyone who came out – we hope you learned something about corsets!
“Designers, costumers, and scholars from the New York Nineteenth Century Society show off and explain their historically inspired corsets. See reproduction period corsets from the 18th-21st centuries up close and learn practical tips and tricks for constructing your own corset.
Wednesday, November 9, 2011, 6:30pm – 9:30pm, Swift Hibernian Lounge, 34 East 4th Street (between Lafayette and Bowery), Manhattan. Cost: Free (but we hope you’ll buy a drink or two to support our gracious hosts).”
