I had been following Valkyrie Corsets her work for a while now and when we got in touch on Insagram, the place where all the cool people hang out still online, I was stoked to hear she wanted to send me one of her gorgeous designs and above that, a make a made-to-measure corset for my petite model My Fragility. Cue the awesomness and cue the hype! Especially when my dear Eline Deblauwe wanted to join us to make something bold, colorfull and alien come to life. I knew I wanted to do something alien. That’s basically what me and My Fragility always go for, so no surprise there. I’m really happy that Valkyrie Corsets trusted me with this and of course, that Eero as usual just let me go wild with his pieces. Obviously, more to come. One cannot shoot this piece a single time. But for now, I hope you like this take on some “alien showgirl from outer space making y’all starstruck” . Over & out.
