Owner and designer Lady Celestine has been sewing for over ten years, starting with an interest in period costuming, along with making her own clothing and costumes for events and fancy dress parties. She was soon introduced to cosplay, and has built up her skills in pattern drafting, prop-making and clothing customisation across the last eight years, attending many costume events and conventions across Melbourne and interstate in Australia. Theatre and performing arts is another influence, Celestine can sometimes be found performing in, or assisting with costumes for one of Melbourne's local theatre companies.
More recently, Celestine has slowly dived into the world of millinery, initially creating a few headpieces in stiffened guipure lace to wear with her Lolita coordinates. She has attended a number of local workshops with Australian milliners, learning to work with both traditional and contemporary millinery materials such as leather, straw, metals and thermoplastics. Working on original designs from the ground up brings her the most joy, and so Celestial Closet was born.
Celestial Closet was established in 2016, in Melbourne, Australia. Our products are all individually handmade with meticulous attention to detail and quality.
