Bianca Lindblad is an independent avant-garde designer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She received her B.F.A. magna cum laude in Fashion Design from Moore College of Art and Design in May of 2008. In addition, Bianca received several critics' awards, including "Best Construction" and "Best Eveningwear," during her college career. Just one look at her stunning and fantastical designs will reveal why!
Built on a lifetime love of heavy music, Romanticism, and a fervent passion for dark drama, Bianca's designs always turn heads. A singer herself, Bianca designs with the end purpose of the stage in mind. Evoking the shimmering glamour from a by-gone age in a world that never quite was, Bianca's designs are perfect for singers, actresses, burlesque divas, and those daring enough to emulate royalty.
With an obsessive attention to detail both inside and out, each garment is made with a specific vision in mind. Exquisite handwork is a specialty, including knitting, crocheting, embroidery with thread and silk ribbon, beading, and more. Couture detailing creates a garment that one could be proud to pass on as an heirloom. Amongst many other precise details, each corset features hand-sewn bias binding, steel boning and busk, and is designed both to last and to draw every eye!
Bianca Lindblad is currently accepting commissions from clients in the Philadelphia, PA area. Proposals for custom commissions and rentals for photoshoots are also very much welcomed.

I try to get back to everyone, but when it takes me a while to, I apologize. I also run my band, design, and personal websites/social sites and it's hard to keep up with everything and still get stuff done IRL! Any and all feedback and communication is much appreciated however!
