About Christine Dempsey Designs

Crimson Gypsy Designs was created by indie-designer Christine Dempsey in the summer of 1999 out of the growing demand for the renaissance clothing and costuming she was designing for herself, her friends and family.  Starting with a few basic pieces, Crimson Gypsy Renaissance Clothing evolved organically over time as customer demand for new silhouettes and styles, and Christine's interest in historical research grew.  

BDYWear was inspired by Christine's desire to create a line of off-beat active-wear that could transition from dance or yoga practice, to the festival scene, to the street, seamlessly with style, comfort and grace.  Designed to be flattering, comfortable and well-fitting on all body types, BDYWear is functional and well-made with casual elegance and your unique style and expression in mind. BDYWear has become a favorite of belly dancers, yogis, fire dancers and hoopers alike!  

Inspired by the gorgeous hour-glass silhouettes and flowing lines of the Victorian Era, Christine created her line of Custom Corsetry. Each corset is crafted by hand, to the customers measurements and specifications, using the highest quality materials, all steel boning, specialized construction technique, and exacting standards, for a beautiful corset that is made to fit *your* body and will last for many years!  

Designing clothing and costumes has been her passion since she was a child. With over 30 years experience, Christine creates clothing that is not only exceptionally well-crafted, but designed with impeccable fit, attention to detail, beautiful silhouettes and classic style. You receive a garment that is breathtakingly beautiful, designed just for you, that will exceed your greatest expectations!

Christine's design offerings include Custom Corsetry, Bridal and Formal Wear, Renaissance Clothing, Belly Dance Costumes, Dance and Yoga Wear, Casual Tops and Dresses. Skilled in custom pattern drafting, remote custom fitting, and professional couture sewing techniques, Christine possesses a creative design spirit, a sense of adventure, and is ready to design your next custom corset or gown!

All clothing is made in the home-based Christine Dempsey Design Studio, located in the heart of the beautiful Hudson Valley/Catskill region of New York.
