Oxford Conference of Corsetry is a two day residential conference for corset makers and enthusiasts which takes place every  two years in August in the beautiful and tranquil surroundings of Jesus College Oxford. 

OCOC'19 will take place from 24-25 August 2019.  The programme for 2019 will be confirmed soon and updated here on the official website. Our newest confirmed speakers are Luca Costigliolo of the School of Historical Dress, and Anthony Ladd Canney whose most famous clients include Drag Queen, Violet Chachki and Burlesque Queen, Dita von Teese. We also have Autumn Adamme of Dark Garden, Steph Selmayr of Past Pleasures and Alison Campbell of Crikey Aphrodite. More speakers will be announced soon.

As usual there will be the opportunity to shoot your work on our gorgeous models, with our fantastic ‘A-Team’ of photographers, Chris Murray, Glo Mason and Tigz Rice. These shoot slots are open to all delegates and Jesus College is a unique setting to display your work.

The price for 2019 is £725.00 per delegate. Tickets will be on sale until the end of March 2019 so please do purchase your tickets before the deadline. There is an early bird discount of £25.00 until the end of January 2019, and payment plans for up to 4 payments. Once you have booked into your payment plan, you will be locked into that rate - so if you book 4 payments before the end of January, then you are locked into the early bird rate.
