Miranda Lambert in ani&ari TONIGHT!!!

 Exciting news from our  atelier – we designed the custom corsets worn by  Miranda Lambert and The Pistol Annie’s at their CMA Music Festival performance at LP Field. The show, Country’s Night To Rock, was taped in June but airs tonight on ABC!

Miranda’s corset was a challenge because of its custom cap sleeve, something we’ve never attempted before and she ended up loving.

Our sleeve innovation started with this simple bra cup that we turned into a structured shoulder pad. We then attached a custom made leather strap that is detachable from the corset.

For the next step was to cover the shoulder pad with the stretched black lambs leather. Guess what we used? Rubber cement  a trick we learned from watching our dad make saddles for cowboys in our basement – Thanks Dad!

Once the sleeves were covered in leather and sewn together we hand stitched two rows of chains around the rim of the shoulder pad. We spent extra time carefully measuring the chains to get the asymmetrical flattering look.

Voila!!! They turned out so cool and Miranda looked amazing in them!

Hayden Panettiere in ani&ari

Exciting news at the studio; we were contacted by Susie DeSanto from the wardrobe department of the hot new ABC show “Nashville” to create a custom corset for one of their stars Hayden Panettiere. If you haven’t heard about “Nashville” then you must be living on another planet, because it’s the most talked about new show for the fall. The show stars Connie Britton as a country singer juggling her home life and struggling to remain a relevant country star. Meanwhile Hayden’s character is taking over the country music industry.  It’s going to be amazing and we’re so excited to watch!

We are over the moon to be part of the show because the producers have made a huge effort to portray Nashville in an authentic light. Our studio has created custom corsets for Miranda Lambert, The Pistol Annies, and Carrie Underwood thus it would be perfect for Hayden’s country Music Star character to rock an authentic custom ani&ari corset.

We were given a (tiny) pair of studded white denim True Religion shorts to be our inspiration for creating the corset.

Hayden and Wardrobe Stylist, Susie DeSanto both loved these shorts, so we came up with a design that highlighted all the special aspects of these minis. We went with the same white denim and camel colored topstitching. Then we embellished the cups with an array of multi colored rim set jewels. Can you believe we only had 5 days? Our first fitting was via the telephone, but in the end the corset was PERFECTION. We missed the taping, but pictures are beginning to surface and we couldn’t be happier with how she looks!
