Corset Bling

We had a special request from stylist Tiffany Gifford to create custom black leather corset that could have interchangeable Bling for Shawna Thompson of Thompson Square. The first bit of bling we created for Shawna’s corset was variety of jewels, beads, and chains.

We took a variety of jewels we had in the studio covered them in our trade secret glue that is the strongest glue around, and dipped them in cool beads.

We then glued the beaded jewels to a piece of cotton Coutil and wrapped them in chains. The trim was attached to the corset by metal hooks that were sewn into the Coutil.

The finished corset looked amazing! The embellishments added something special to the basic black leather corset! The best part is that the bling is removable! Stay tuned to see what embellishments Tiffany requests next – maybe studs, flowers… we can create anything she can dream up!! It was a good craft day at ani&ari 🙂

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!

Wow, we can not even begin to explain how excited we were when we found out Miranda Lambert and The Pistol Annie’s would ALL be wearing our corsets for their performance at LP Field Thursday night! Not only are they some of our favorite women in country music, but they are also some of our FAVORITE clients!
