The Spellbinding Designs of Rohmy Couture
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you transported a Grecian goddess to the modern day, introduced her to the world of kink and shibari rope work, and then asked her to design clothing? You just might get the fantastic creations of Rohmy Couture. Handmade, beautifully draped gowns combine with intricate rope work, and just like that, our couture fantasies have come true.
Every piece is handmade by the designer, Myriam Rohmy, in Germany. Growing up with musicians for parents and an aunt who was a tailor allowed her to experience and live art in all its forms. Her passion for sewing and creating beautiful clothing eventually led her to study textile technology, custom tailoring, and fashion design, the culmination of which is Rohmy Couture. She started out making period costumes and wedding gowns, which is apparent in her design sensibility to this day.
Her designs illustrate a clear understanding and appreciation for the female form, as she uses layers of fabric to drape and fold over curves. Rope work details only further accentuate this understanding, as she applies rope tie and harness details to cinch waists, accentuate busts, and overall add to the regal sensuality of her designs.
