About Me

Kirsteen studied both fashion design and theatre costume in 2004 at Telford College, Edinburgh. With a passion for fashion Kirsteen worked as a retail manager for alternative boutiques deciding she wanted to start her own unique brand of corsetry and costume .Her label Boom! Boom! Baby! Has been stocked by some of the world’s finest boutiques. Every bespoke garment is hand-made by Kirsteen from concept to delivery, ensuring 100% originality and the seal of quality that can only be provided by an individual.

Kirsteen’s work has featured in a diverse variety of stage and screen media. TV programming such as children’s TV show Trapped and channel 4′s new comedy ‘VIP” have included designs, as have star-studded nationwide pantomime performances (including Cannon and Ball in Cinderella) and west end stage blockbusters such as Annie, for which Kirsteen also toured the UK and Asia as wardrobe mistress.

In addition Kirsteen has assembled corsets and costume for numerous print journals and periodicals in a variety of genres, including fashion, music and bridal. Some of the world’s finest burlesque performers have also been dressed by Kirsteen, including such luminaries as Anna Fur Laxis and Raquel Reed.
