Mr. Pearl is the illustrious pseudonym worn by Mark Pullin - master corsetier to the Fashion world. His brilliance has been seen on runways for Dior, Thierry Mugler and Alexander McQueen, - adorned by the likes of Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue and Mr. Pearl himself. I have always had a fascination with Mr.Pearl, how elusive he is, his famous physique and the outlandishly beautiful corsets he has produced for glamazons across the world. A few weeks ago I was watching 'The View' and Sherri Shepherd question if corsets made a resurgence because of Kim Kardashian and I screamed 'blasphemy' at the television! While KimK is known for her hourglass frame she does not encompass nor exudes the allure and sensuality of a true corset wearer. Mr.Pearl radiates and oozes the poise, composure and sheer elegance a corset gives to one who commits to wearing that foundation. It's more then a garment, it's a lifestyle that might not be for all can be appreciated even from afar.
