The story of Ilmatar
Ilmatar Corsetry & Couture was a dream that brewed in the back of my mind for many years before it came to life. Craftmanship and artistic hobbies have always been part of my life, but I truly found my passion for corsets and dressmaking in my 20's.
In 2015 I graduated in a dressmaker's school in Finland. Throughout the studies I always challenged myself to learn always more difficult stuff, and by the time I graduated I had mastered corsetry techniques more than any other section of dressmaking.
After studies, I decided to hone all the other skills needed in dressmaking too, collecting knowledge about all the different sort of wedding dress constructions, alterations of ready-made clothing, customer service and material expertise.
In the spring of 2017 I felt I was more ready than ever to breathe life into this dream of my own brand. It's been an exciting adventure in dressmaking and fashion design, and today you might see Ilmatar's unique creations on the stages of Europe, burlesque events, or wedding seremonies and much more!
