La Belle Fairy

La Belle Fairy creates exquisite handmade corsetry, costumes and clothing "for the sweet but sultry misses." The head fairy herself agreed to speak with us briefly about her shop, which she runs from a hand built log house in the heart of the BC Rockies.

Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
I've always loved how corsets looked so feminine and intricate, one day I thought I would try to make one.

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Make a brand new corset! Best day, I am cutting into a brand new piece of fabric creating a new design or color combination.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
Storing all those mountains of ribbons and trims...

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
The Cameo Victorian Corset Circa 1896. She is so pretty, classic, and divine.

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
A fashion designer

What other shops out there do you love?

What does your future hold?
Silk velvet corsets, wedding gowns, replica fashion, love
