Designer: Muriel Le Couls. Origin: Born 1967, Harfleur, France. Work: Paris and worldwide. Materials: Rush, allium. She Says: "This piece is called 'Corset;' it was inspired by haute couture. It is a composition where the botanical material and structure work together. Using a mannequin to carry the piece as I worked, my approach here was a little like a couturier's. Through this symbiotic creative partnership, a harmonious ensemble was created."
