San Francisco's Tweed Ride proved to be the best occasion to give my cycling corset a proper airing. Fortunately, The Bold Italic showed up.
After a hiatus of a year and half, the Tweed Ride finally returned to San Francisco on June 3rd, 2012. Erin Browner was there to photograph the wooly affair and she did an amazing job on this photo essay.
Of course dressing up for a bike ride is its own reward, but I was truly honored to see my handmade corset featured in the photo story. I made the purple plaid beauty a few years ago when I was attending FITInternational Fashion Design program in Florence, Italy. It was actually a homework assignment!
