It began when her mom taught her to sew at age six. Now, Lauren Bregman of Castle Corsetry has been an award-winning designer for the past decade. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and training at Farthingales Corsets, Lauren broke through as a designer for the famous Trashy Lingerie. There, she designed custom corset and costume orders for superstars such as Kim Kardashian, Julianne Hough, Holly Madison, and Rose McGowan, as well as some pieces for major award shows.
Since launching Castle Corsetry in 2009, Lauren has designed and built hundreds of corsets ranging from compact waist cinchers to full fledged waist-trainers in all materials from silk to leather and everything in between. Though she does create classic corsets, Lauren’s most popular designs are her pop-culture corsets featuring Marvel and DC characters, Harry Potter houses and, of course, Star Wars. She’s breaking into vending at conventions, so follow her pages for the latest news!
In addition to her corsetry work, Lauren has designed and manufactured many custom costume orders. Executing dozens of orders for every major convention across the country, she has now made a name for herself in the cosplay world. You can see some of her designs on Geek-culture celebrities like Team Unicorn, Ivy Doomkitty and Adrianne Curry!
Some of her noteworthy and award-winning costumes include Dark Phoenix, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Captain America, Mortal Kombat’s Mileena, Monster High’s Frankie & Lagoona and Spaceballs’ Dark Helmet. There’s no project beyond her skill and no design beyond her imagination. As a geeky girl herself, Lauren’s enthusiasm for her work is what sets her apart. Her dedication and attention to detail makes her designs truly exceptional. There isn’t a finer, quirkier costumer and corsetiere around.
