Gabriel Moginot’s first trip to NYC to deliver his custom made corset to Amanda Lepore


Dear Shaded Viewers,

I had dinner with Gabriel the night before he left for NYC. He brought Amanda's corset with him to show me. As you might recall, Gabriel is a student of Mr. Pearl and this is his first corset, a bit of a challenge as Amanda was never around for a real fitting…but it works..

I wonder if she knows how many hours he spent on this corset not to mention all of the stories behind the beautiful beads.
