Specialists in bespoke corsetry & bridal-wear – New Boutique NOW OPEN!
Custard Factory, Birmingham
0121 608 1220
After a highly successful 10 years in the corsetry world, Rawhide Corsets have opened a stylish new boutique down town at the Custard Factory located in Digbeth, Birmingham. The ground floor is a stunning combination of a showroom and a workroom where you can have a ‘through the keyhole’ look at the corsetieres at work whilst browsing through their fantastic pieces.
As the fashion market becomes more of a widely mass produced industry, Rawhide offers a opposing fresh feel with their distinguished creativity and artistry. Furthermore, unlike many other retailers currently, Rawhide allows their clients to come and be personally fitted so their garments are tailored and a perfect fit.
Not only is Rawhide fantastic in it’s approach, their products are of an outstanding quality as well with a wide range of beautiful corsets to choose from. their style of vintage elegance, burlesque couture and sumptuous chic is evident with their 100’s of corsets styled with simple satins, luscious feathers and leathers and crystal encrusted and embellished silks. And if that wasn’t enough to sell it you, they also have a full range of beautifully made retro lingerie by ‘What Katie Did’ and an abundance of accessories including feather wraps, long sheer evening coats, leather boleros with matching skirts, 50’s style petticoats, beautiful oriental inspired kimonos and complimenting hand made fascinators, hats and necklaces.
Behind this amazing boutique is a woman with over 20 years experience in the fashion industry – designer and entrepreneur Jo Bromley. Jo passionately believes in developing and encouraging craftsmanship with her home-grown cottage ethos. Her passion is spurred by the decline in craftsmanship due to the textiles and manufacturing industry which was the pride of Britain, this passion is evident in the way she enthuses about her work – “I want to bring artistry, luxury and style of a Parisian Atelier combined with the perfection and technicality of a Saville Row tailors to the Midlands, and offer our clients a tailored and unique one-to-one service”.
This fantastic showroom is also shared by Rawhide’s sister company, The Couture Company, which specializes in bespoke, alternative and made to measure bridal gowns.
To compliment this fantastic range, Rawhide have done some amazing photo shoots with Photographers such as John Dietrich, Julian Kilsby and Rebecca Parker and stunning models such as the likes of Ulorin Vex, Trixie D’Licious and Millie Dollar.
