Welcome to Michael Wilson Design

Michael Wilson started creating metal Artwear tops in 2003, using his wife Liza as his muse. Each work of art is unique and no two pieces will ever be replicated. All items are made without pattern, and need to be custom fitted to ensure a perfect fit should the purchaser wish to wear her bustier.

Bustiers take up to 280 hours to create and are made with antique brass and and variety of colours of Swarovski crystals. Each bustier is hand made by Michael from several thousand pieces, painstakingly linked by hand. Prices on bustiers vary depending on detail, crystals incorporated and the amount of time each piece takes to create, but vary from around $2500 to $8000.

Being a combination of art, clothing and jewellery, the bustiers are not only made to be displayed, but can be worn as a showstopper if worn with care.

Michael’s items have generated enormous interest, and anyone lucky enough to own one, will be in possession of a unique work of wearable art that will last a lifetime.

A range of unique metal jewellery is also available, but there is no catalogue as once again, pieces are custom made and not to a pattern. Jewellery prices range from around $50 for a pair of Swarovski crystal and Sterling silver earrings, to around $80 for handpieces, $120 for necklaces and $200 for belts. All jewellery uses the same material as the bustiers.
