Karolina Laskowska Couture AW16


Exquisitely unique corsetry and lingereie, showcasing the creative abilities and craftsmanship of Karolina Laskowska. This season sees sheer bobbinet mesh embellished with lashings of French lace, embroidery, hand-painted ink and vintage rhinestones. Days of labour have been dedicated to the couture-level of hand finishing of these pieces. Although each of the garments in these images are one-of-a-kind and can't be repeated exactly, they can be viewed as an inspiration springboard for a customer's own bespoke lingerie.
