Junko Mizuno Inspired Corset

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Junko Mizuno, an amazing Japanese artist I love, opened her second solo Canadian gallery show "Venus Cake : Junko Mizuno's Food Obsession" last night! This was a costume created for a burlesque performance held at the after party inspired by one of her pieces called "Fire bird". I designed and made this corset from scratch. All the patterns and graphics on the corset were digitally illustrated by me based directly on Junko's piece. After that I silk screened the flowers on the fabric for the side and back panels and screened the animals. For the animals also the grey shading by hand.
