As part of SHOWstudio’s Fashion & Freedom exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery, PHOEBE ENGLISH designed a bespoke corset to feature in a film exploring how the first world war led to a decline in the garment’s use.

Directed by Rei Nadal, with styling by Ellie Grace Cumming, and modelled by Guinevere Van Seenus, The Fall Of The Corset is on view until 27 November 2016 in Manchester, or to watch online here.
