Sandra Chirico is a bespoke corset designer based in Montreal. She has been making corsets for about 18 years. Her interest in corset making came after attending fashion school. Her work is inspired from historical reproductions to modern techniques and styling. Her designs reflect a modern edge, a vintage esthetic, fantasy and glamour. Her back ground is in costume making for circus, opera and dance, she often applies unique techniques she’s learned from those experiences. The line uses only fine quality fabrics and corset making supplies and also incorporates silk painting and embroidery. She emphasizes the importance of bespoke (custom made) to the wearer as it is important for her to achieve the best fit possible. She has a Diploma in Fashion Design from LaSalle College and a BFA in Fibers from Concordia University.
