About the speaker, Lorraine White

Seamstress by day, corsetiere by night, Lorraine White indulges her love of vintage and couture through the bejewelled world of burlesque and corsetry.

Drawn to fabric and vintage fashion from an early age, Lorraine’s passion for textiles found focus when she fell in love with corsetry during tertiary study and has been developing her skills in this genre ever since.

Lorraine combines her considerable skills in textiles and interest in preserving the history of this art, to craft exquisitely constructed and embellished corsetry for the glamorous showgirl!
