Meet creator and artist Barbara Pesendorfer


Royal Black is a couture label based in Vienna / Austria, which has specialised in finest handcrafted corsetry, couture costumes and evening wear.

Designer and master tailoress Barbara Pesendorfer founded Royal Black back in 2006 and creates couture constructed to her own designs and patterns for more than 17 years now. Perfect fit, exquisite fabrics and workmanship at highest stage are the trademark of each Royal Black creation, whilst a mixture of classic couture and tailoring techniques and new technologies like lasercutting, engraving or 3D printing turn each garment into a unique piece of wearable art. 

After seven years of working for clients fulltime, Barbara nowadays focuses on teaching, mentoring students in private classes and at the platform Foundations Revealed, as well as sharing her skills and knowledge with an international audience on Patreon and social media.
