The Original French Stays

Caught in a midst of trying to finish these stays off for a client, we thought while we had a coffee break to post up some of the photo’s we’ve taken of these Stays being made.

The client has chosen the most beautiful blend of colours – the grey and blues going wonderfully together. the original stays we’ve also popped in for you to see.

We’ll keep it brief though -the details of the particular stays are:


The German Original Pair
