Carley Matthews is the corsetiere behind Beneath the Tower. She dwells in the City of Bath, a place of rich history and inspiring columns, which has undeniably influenced her work and instilled romance into every stitch.
A self taught corset maker, whose obsession began with a desire to make historical clothing, she started with a replica of a Victoran corset and never looked back.
"Beneath the Tower is about capturing my imagination and distilling it into a wearable piece of art. Corsetry is a multifaceted practice and I love the challenges this wonderful artform presents. My ambition is to provide people with a little slice of fairytale, a moment of enchantment".
