Like any woman, the supple feel and voluptuous shape of these corsets hide the strength of their design. Steel bones are encased by high quality german coutil; a steel busk is encapsulated in a plush fabric underlay. This allows skin to be protected while giving a woman that alluring shape that corsets are known for.
The boutique is the creation of Verena Dietzel. Verena’s original background is in fashion design, although her involvement with theater and photography are apparent in the dramatic feel of her designs. Nearly invisible cups, and a satin bow, on a black lace bra, are examples of the details that characterize her most tantalizing pieces. Underbust pieces with matching lace bras, corset dresses with sheer lining, and other designs sure to entice women looking to add excitement to their wardrobe.
V-couture also understands the allure of innocence. Corsets trimmed with lace and tulle give to her designs a sense of purity. However, the sheer lace bodices, hand dyed red trim, plunging chokers, and lace bustier give a more intimate feel to these designs.
For some, the purchase of one of these corsets is a splurge , however they are well worth the expense. The allure of these high quality corsets are enough to justify the indulgence, beyond considering their tantalizing effect on your admirers. From a bridal line to designs that would make a burlesque dancer blush, V-couture has something to suit any taste.
Hand-made corsets are always something special. Experienced wearers, such as Bernie Dexter, swarm again and again to the quality and fit of a hand-sewn corset.

German and especially Berlin rockabellas may now look forward to a new corset designer: Miss Moss.The fashion designer, Gemma Moss comes from England. After her training she settled in Berlin to sew and teach. Why Berlin? Well the charm of this city is like a magnet.
The precious lingerie can be found on her DaWanda shop, selling chic burlesque corsets and pin up accessories. Detailed information can be found on her website about her work.
Before we carry on about the fashion, now a word about her second passion. Miss Moss teaches sewing courses attracting interested vintage and pin up lovers offering a variety of workshops. Private lessons can be made via an appointment to learn how to sew corsets and other pin-up style clothes. Its a great opportunity to learn first hand from your new favourite designer!
Now back to vintage clothing and underwear. Miss Moss designs clearly show inspiration from Victorian, Burlesque or Rococo. What else can be found is sweet rockabilly accessories with lots of polka dots and mini bows. Occasionally one finds a couple of traditional dresses like 1920s style or antique Elizabethan collars, aprons and other vintage pin-up fashion.
Those who prefer to examine first hand these things they should stop by the Savage Store in Friedrichshain. As a true designer, Gemma naturally offers custom made couture. You could also simply contact her through her Burlesque online shop.

The style of Miss Moss is alive and plain at the same time. Just think of cotton candy, a delicate string of pearls, rock n roll and blood red lips. You’ve got an idea of her fashion sense (or a light chaos in the head!) Rockabellas should check out these lovely designs and hope to see many more ideas and styles!
