Besançon, France

Victoria repatriated to France, and that was a hard time for her. Thanks to her talent and strong will she succeed as fashion designer in the, as may seems, the most competitive place - France. Her first big brake through was on fashion show Defile in 2012. 

"For all I have now I have to thank Corset Academy" - Victoria tells us in her video review.

"I was looking for corsets for inspiration on the net and came across Tatiana's courses. I started learning and immediately understood how easy and doable making corsets is. I began selling corsets and corset based garments and very soon I realized, that I was the only seamstress in the area, who could offer such garments!"

One year after I started practicing Corset Academy sewing techniques, I opened my own shop in the city of Besançon!

I make mostly corsets, but evening and wedding dresses as well.

This is my workshop, it might be hard to believe, but I use the simple sewing machine (non-professional). It works perfect for me.

This is the first corset I made after Corset Academy's technique. It's the most popular model. After a fitting I usually take the order. Clients change the color, decoration or skirt, but the style, the basis, remains.

This open-back dress is very popular among young women. Fits perfectly to the bust. I made it in 2 days.

Also I have clean corsets, that I offer to my clients for fitting. They are ready for decoration and my clients choose the design, the colors, skirt or trousers. It takes me 1 day to make a corset like this.
