​​​​​​​Mr. Pearl lacing me into my first corset: from a toile I made from his altered pattern. 
This was the ultimate turning point in my design career; from here I began my experimenting with corsetry and its function. Mr. Pearl introduced me to my passion and provided me with limitless inspiration.
