Coming from the military dress, the corset lost its defensive role and its warrior character to become over the centuries a tool of seduction. In Corset a fashion designer and an art critic have teamed up to tell us its story. It begins in Antiquity and over time is found in both masculine and feminine fashions. The masculine corset protects vital organs, from battles to tournaments. In feminine, it both emphasizes and accentuates the female form. Through its twists and turns of lacing and threading is the magic of the corset and a significant reflection of different eras and their cultures.
