Return of the Corset

By: Australia123 - Published:   Updated: Aug 11 2011 • References:
Whether they be the celebrated curve exaggerations or the dreaded body squeezers, corsets have always been iconic and synonymous with the female form.

They exaggerate the hour-glass figure associated with the ideal female form,: a large bust with tiny waist and curvaceous hips.

21-year-old costume design student, Carly Van Groeningen, partakes in private corset-making classes. Why? Because she loves the challenge and the precision involved in corsetry.

Implications - The gorgeous model in this shoot is Aris Cologon, a 20-year-old model and client of Melinda Hanley, who rocks a variety of different outfits in this collection with aplomb. Do not be surprised if you see her pop up in major international ad campaigns in the near future, she's a model with potential for superstardom.
