Received a tip from my old friend Miss Viv Trafalgar (ty, madam) that Steampunk has made another incremental step into the mainstream. The fashion show, Project Runway, had a casting call for its sixth season (which will start on the 20th of August), and the very well know RL Steampunk designer Miss Louise Black was selected to compete this year!
Miss Black is well known in the RL Steampunk fashion world as a trendsetter, and her etsy site, show off many of her designs, including her trademark cameo corsets (those would be the ones with the images in them, gentlemen). High quality and innovative design are her signature, along with an infusion of Victoriana - with a bit of good fortune, she'll come out as the winner of season six!
To learn more about Miss Black, the next season of Project Runway (which does not allow embedding of videos, to my chagrin), and see her works, please visit the following sites...
