Georgian Satires

Spring Summer 2011

Waist-cinching corsets, dramatic knots with angular edges, and voluminous ruffles of this collection channel 18th-century satire and the overstated fashions of the Georgian era. Corrie Nielsen drew on the illustrations of James Gillray and George Cruikshank for inspiration. Both men came to prominence during this golden age of British satire. They mocked the French and English aristocrats, portraying them as pompous, extravagant, and vulgar while inflating the shapes and proportions of their styles. Full of dynamic silhouettes, Georgian Satires blends tradition with exaggerated luxury. A nod to the dramatic interpretations of high fashion, each piece is a structural spectacle.
