Season's Greetings!

Welcome to the L'Atelier de LaFleur newsletter, and thank you for signing up to learn more about the Arboresque collection. It's such a treat to have you here, and I'm excited to share news and updates with you first!

Arboresque has been intentionally shrouded in a bit of mystery, I admit. While the idea of presenting the first corset as a completed whole is enticing, I always enjoy seeing the magic happen in others' works in progress, and I hope you'll enjoy seeing some of my own process "in the making."

Much of the spirit of this artistic collection stems from the name, Arboresque; tree-like. The focus is to push my own limits as an artist and corsetiere, and to create as much by hand to achieve that vision as possible. Each leaf a unique piece, made and applied by hand makes every corset designed for this limited collection one of a kind.

This is something of an atypical launch, which I have instead chosen to call "an unfolding", in that each new design will be released when she is ready, rather than keeping these beauties under wraps until they're all finished (something I'm much too excited a person to manage!). The first of these, named Bur Oak, is well along now. Not only am I enchanted with the beautiful shapely lobes of bur oak leaves, but the name seems just right for a lavish gold corset with much layered embellishment.

Basted bone channels, preserving the turn of cloth
A smattering of the embellishments to get an idea of how they all come together. Exciting stuff!

Bur Oak will be ready so very soon, and seeing all of the components together was a magical feeling; one I hope translates to you as well. From the bottom of my heart, thank you again for being here. However you celebrate this season, I hope you've had many hearty laughs with loved ones that carry you into a bright new year! Wishing you the very best in 2017!

Warmly,
Mina
