Corsetry by Angela Friedman has been creating corsets and lingerie for women all around the world for the past five years.  Now, for the first time, Angela is producing a complete collection to be released for Spring/Summer 2012!  You can help make this dream a reality by contributing to this Kickstarter campaign, in whatever amount you can afford.  Thank you for helping me afford to purchase materials, produce samples, photograph designs, and create a presentation show!

You can see Angela's corsetry portfolio here: http://angelafriedman.com/portfolio-corsetry.shtml and her Etsy storefront here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AngelaFriedman

The Versailles Collection will feature lingerie designs that emphasize a woman's natural curves and beauty.  The color palette and fabric choices are selected for their soft nature and rich elegance - silks, brocades, French lace, pearls...  These are luxury garments, created to last for years to come.  The collection will feature corsets, silk bra and panty sets, lace slips, garters, silk robes, and accessories.  Angela's garments are carefully designed to empower women by showing just enough skin, but never too much.  You can be sure to feel feminine and confident in these new designs.

Your contribution will help purchase fabric, lace, and trim for samples and production; offset the labor cost of creating the clothes; pay for the studio, photographer, and models to shoot the collection; print promotional materials; and produce a presentation fashion show in Spring 2011.  To completely fund the line as envisioned, it will cost a great deal more than $5000 - but with this minimum, I can create a small collection and start to build this dream!  All backers will have access to project updates and insider information on Kickstarter, and I look forward to meeting many of you at the preview event in a few months!  Thank you in advance for your support!
