Alannah Hanley 

BA [Hons] New Media Studies

My name is Alannah. I finished my degree in New Media Studies in 2021. For my final year project I researched the social progression of the corset using a blog as my narrative structure. I have a big interest in fashion and it is a career that I would like to pursue. I looked at the history of the corset and used the corset trends of 2020 and 2021 to provide a comparison through the lens of feminism.

The Social Progression of the Corset

The blog 'Shaping The Corset' looks at the social progression of the corset through the lens of feminism. Dating back to the 16th century and continuing to the 21st century, I researched the social attitudes towards the corset and how they progressed within the society of its time.
