Here's one of the pieces that Joni of @rainbowcurvecorsetry brought with her in the past. Corsetry encompasses so many different skills. from the very creative to the very technical. Joni's technical and wonderful creativity positively bursts out with every piece she makes! It was such a pleasure to display her pieces at the OCOC. We'd love to see your creations this year! #corsetier #corsettraining #corsetstyle #corsetschool #corsetting #learncorsetry ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #corsetmakers #corsetmaker #corsetlove #corsetlovers #corsetmodel #corsetcurves #ococ #corsetmakersunite #learncorsetmaking #sewingcorsets #sewing #dressmaking #costuming #costumiers #lingerie #foundationsrevealed

Joni Steinmann of @rainbowcurvecorsetry (or rather, the back of Joni!) at the lat OCOC. Joni has created some amazing, breathtakingly creative (and award winning!) corsetry in recent years. The corset community loves to nurture and encourage creative talent, and we love to share or ups, downs and new discoveries with each other. Why not meet up with us this August? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #corsetier #corsettraining #corsetstyle #corsetschool #corsetting #learncorsetry ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #corsetmakers #corsetmaker #corsetlove #corsetlovers #corsetmodel #corsetcurves #ococ #corsetmakersunite #learncorsetmaking #sewingcorsets #sewing #dressmaking #costuming #costumiers #lingerie #foundationsrevealed

This breathtaking corset was a collaboration between several amazing corsetieres for Marianne of Pop Antique's wedding in 2016. Marianne made the base and then @karolinalaskowskalingerie @sparklewren @neonduchess and @ltlaurietavan have creative reign over the rest. Corset makers... friends... coming together and working to produce something wonderful.... rather like the OCOC! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #corsetier #corsettraining #corsetstyle #corsetschool #corsetting #learncorsetry ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #corsetmakers #corsetmaker #corsetlove #corsetlovers #corsetmodel #corsetcurves #ococ #corsetmakersunite #learncorsetmaking #sewingcorsets #sewing #dressmaking #costuming #costumiers #lingerie #foundationsrevealed

One of the great things is the swap table! bring down pieces of fabric, lace and other embellishments, and swap them for something else! You never know, that piece that you can't think what to do with... might be the very thing another maker has been hunting down! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by Laurie Tavan⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ococ #corsetmakers #corsetry #corsets #corsetmaking #oxford #corsetfashion #sewing #couture #friends #sharingtips #learncorsetry #learnsewing #uniquevenue #corsetryconference #corsettraining #ococ19 #corsetconference #costumes #cosplay #comicon #corsetdress #conferenceofcorsetry #costumemaking

OCOC doesn't end at the end of the conference! Many people stay over a bit longer because ... well ... friends! Here we all are in the pub after the conference ... the poor pub regulars probably wondered what hit them! There are corsetmakers here literally from all over the world including Australia! Early bird discount to #OCOC19 ends today. Come make real life friends, in a real life place, with real life corsetmakers, real life corsets, and real life learning! There's nothing else like it. . #corsetier #corsettraining #corsetstyle #corsetschool #corsetting #learncorsetry #corsetmakers #corsetmaker #corsetlove #corsetlovers #corsetmodel #corsetcurves #ococ #corsetmakersunite #learncorsetmaking #sewingcorsets #sewing #dressmaking #costuming #costumiers #lingerie #foundationsrevealed ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ image by: kind man in pub

Today is the last day of the OCOC Early Bird Discount! Sign up today for the cheaper rate tickets. They go up tomorrow by £25.00 - you can lock yourself into the cheaper rate, even if you are paying by instalments. Here's a typical Saturday night bar scene. Real live corset makers, making friends in real life, with beer and gin! Pictured are @laurietavan @crickeyaphrodite @carolinewoollin @tigzrice @vanyanis @karolinalaskowskalingeri @misstosh⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also in this picture, but very sadly no longer with us, is Eve Clements, well known in the Lingerie community. She came to OCOC17 and was lovely. It was very sad for many people to say goodbye to her, but wonderful that OCOC provided a place where she and her lingerie friends could at last meet up in person. This post is dedicated in friendship, to her memory.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ococ #corsetmakers #corsetry #corsets #corsetmaking #oxford #corsetfashion #sewing #couture #friends #sharingtips #learncorsetry #learnsewing #uniquevenue #corsetryconference #corsettraining #ococ19 #corsetconference #costumes #cosplay #comicon #corsetdress #conferenceofcorsetry #costumemaking⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ image by @laurietavan

Another bonus of coming to OCOC is that you'll meet people you never expected to meet or even work with. Pictured here with our special guest for 2017, dazzling @misstosh, is Anya Kovaks of South African based brand @thevelvetletter. Anya is not only a corsetmaker, but also a burlesque performer. I think she and Tosh swapped a bunch of tips! Other attendees of the conference are also still working with Miss Tosh - so many unexpected delights at OCOC! Sign up now to lock yourself into the early bird rate! And we'll see you in August! . . . #ococ17 #ococ #corsetmakers #corsetry #corsets #corsetmaking #oxford #corsetfashion #sewing #couture #friends #sharingtips #learncorsetry #learnsewing #uniquevenue #corsetryconference #corsettraining #corsetconference #costumes #cosplay #comicon #corsetdress #conferenceofcorsetry . image by @laurietavan

Every year at OCOC, we have a formal drinks reception "Oxford Style" (ever watched 'Inspector Morse' ?) ... where everyone dresses up in their best finery (corsets optional). Here at the #Pimms reception is @karolinalaskowskalingerie wearing @alexandermcqueen with a corset and top of her own amazing creation, and Marianne Faulkner of @popantique and @darkgarden wearing her 'disco dots' gown, of her own creation over one of her own corsets. Simply divine, both of them, and two of the best lingerie and corset designers in the world. Marianne will be at OCOC19 talking about her special thing which is Ribbon Corsets - come meet her! Early bird discount is live for only 2 more days. Sign up now or regret it forever. . . #corset #corsetry #fashionhistory #couture #couturefashion #slowfashion #corsetmaker #corsetmakersontour #steampunk #victorian #corsetmaker #corsetrysupplies #sewingcorsets #sewingsupplies #sewcurvy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ image by @laurietavan

Kitty Krell of @crimsonrosecouture was at #ococ17. She is known for her comfortable every day supportive overbusts corsets, the patterns for which she tests herself very rigorously! She's a seasoned #tightlacer and her shaping is amazing! Come join the party this August - early bird tickets finish at the end of this week, whereupon the rate for OCOC will go up by approximately £25.00. Lock yourself into the early bird rate by signing up today! . . #corsets #corset #corsetdesigners #designersofinstagram #ococ17 #ococ #gothfashiondesigner #corsetmakersontour #corsetiere #fashiondesigners #costumier #steampunk #corsetryconference ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ image by @laurietavan
