The Woman, The Curves
Designed by Raven Tao - corset enthusiast and eurasian media personality in Hong Kong.
Inspired by east and west fusions of strength and beauty, hourglass curves of all sizes transcend time and culture, offering women opportunity to translate a historical garment in a new way with their own voice, in their own femininity, how they see fit.
Words from the founder :
"Sleek, sophisticated, sexy. I believe in the glamour and fierceness of corsets as couture, and want to share my vision with anyone who boldly dares dream the same.
These pieces are born from a love of dramatic clothing, classic silhouettes and Victorian aesthetics.
Pearls are the perfect accessory for any occasion. Classic and feminine, they embody the strength and beauty of women. Arsenic adds an essential drop of danger. Its alchemical symbol is the logo of Pearls & Arsenic.
Corsets and bustles; lace and intrigue.
Sensuality can smoulder in the restraint of concealed skin.
These clothes are for women. Confident, strong, successful and self aware.
No shrinking violets will ever want to wear these designs.
Each Pearls & Arsenic item is thoughtfully designed for full time corset lovers as well as beginners, and couture pieces meticulously hand embellished; every unique design individually crafted and quality inspected before release to the public. Proudly hand crafted here in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
There is nothing on this site that I do not think is beautifully captivating.
There never will be."
