Corset Makers ani & ari are Part of the Corset Comeback – Corsets are Everywhere – 50 Shades of Gray – “Downton Abbey” – ABC’s hit show “Nashville” – Spring 2013 Runways
NASHVILLE, TN – ani & ari’s custom corset made a guest appearance in the first scene of the second episode of ABC’s hit show “Nashville” on Hayden Panettiere’s character Juliette Barnes. Costume Designer Susie DeSanto collaborated with the ani & ari designers Danielle and Ariel Tredway to create the white denim jeweled corset for the opening scene. Susie discovered ani & ari thru Nashville’s legendary costumer Manuel. The ani & ari corset atelier opened in Nashville, Tennessee in 2011 by Danielle (ani) and Ariel (ari) Tredway away from the bustle of the style hubs, so they can let their own imaginations flourish. Danielle had developed a passion for corsetry during her studies at The School of Art Institute in Chicago and Ariel had noticed a trend in fashion moving towards corsets entering the many facets of the fashion market. It was the perfect time to launch ani & ari.
Ani & ari are known around Nashville for their tenacity and talent for applying couture like craftsmanship to each one of a kind corset they created. Each corset embodied the sisters’ meticulous attention to details and this is reflected in the ani & ari signature craftsmanship and style.
ani & ari get corset and bustier orders from all over the U.S. Danielle relies on her vivid imagination to inspire clients to create a corset that will provide a special moment in time as they lace up (or zip) their custom corsets or bustiers. The sisters always take the artistic choice over the non-artistic decision and work to create options for all desires from simplistic to theatrical.
Their small Nashville atelier is a favorite of celebrity stylists. They have collaborated recently with stylist Trish Townsend for Carrie Underwood and they created Miranda Lambert’s CMA festival corset for stylist Tiffany Gifford. They are currently working on a secret corset for the CMAs.
Danielle and Ariel are always available to give the 411 on selecting the style of corset or bustier that are the most flattering for your body shape. If you are curious they can share an insider’s peek into Nashville style!! The website is coming this November www.ani-ari.com!
