Creating a lime green bespoke corset for Huru’s headline performance and a dreamy AF evening at The Boileroom, Guildford.
I reached out to Huru @cosmichuru after seeing that they were headlining at The Boileroom @theboileroom in January 2023 – having seen Huru perform before at The Glory @thegloryldn and being in absolute awe, I was dreaming of creating a Delta Of Phoenix outfit to match and highlight such passion and beautiful energy. Huru sent over a look moodboard of what she’d been hoping to create, and our dreamstorm began.
We went back and forth via e-mail, exploring initial Delta Of Phoenix design ideas with diamante details and colourful corsets at the core. We fell in love with a colourful corset outfit, lime green with diamante detail, matched with a lime green and pink señorita ruffle mini skirt.

In between performances, I helped Huru backstage with stage outfit QC and behind-the-scenes visuals. We captured the most beautiful moments just before she went onstage. Images below were captured in the Boileroom backstage changing rooms and wall-of-fame feature poster wall:
Huru performed 7 beautiful songs, featuring her song Guilty.
Huru’s Delta Of Phoenix lime green bespoke corset with diamante detail just glowed on stage, with the lime green organza reflecting stage lighting, the señorita ruffle silhouette creating a dramatic, powerful and dreamy AF moment effect.

An absolute delight to work with another passionate creative, here is a short and sweet interview with Cosmic Huru – all about their creative process, their stage persona’s initial conception and why they create the music they create. Oh – and their dream 3 course meal, ofcourse.
2. How do you feel whilst performing?
I feel a mixture of things but what comes to mind first would be, vulnerability, gratitude, joy.
3. Where does your inspiration originate? What energy do you hope to emanate during your performance?
My human experience is a major inspiration for my music and the nuanced and complex beauty that is life. I am continuously inspired by the work and creativity of black creatives who challenge the racial stereotypes within the entertainment industry and the arts. I hope to emanate a reflective and motivational energy when I perform and for audiences to feel liberated and inspired.
4. How does it feel wearing Delta Of Phoenix looks?
I was living my lime green dream in my Delta of Phoenix look! Each look is so gorgeous and unique and makes me feel playful and confident.
