First of all Happy New Year!! I’ve had a lovely break over the festive holidays and now back to work on my designs. I’m currently working on a corset and bustle for a burlesque dancer in Germany. I will upload some images when I’m finished. I wanted to share some images that I have had back from the Poetry Brothel in NYC. I was in New York last year and I helped with styling the photo shoots for the members of the group. I worked with fantastic poets and burlesque dancers and I’m very happy with the end results. The photos were taken by David Burstein Studios. After the photo shoot I stayed to enjoy the performance from the poets and wonderful burlesque performers. The shoot was set in a really wonderful location called The Back Room. The bar is set out like a speakeasy. With a large fireplace, fabulous mirrored bar, chandeliers, velvet paisley wallpaper, old bookcases, and sundry Victoriana. The alcohol is served in teacups, as if drinking in the days of the Prohibition. If you are ever lucky enough to visit New York City, be sure to check if the Poetry Brothel have any shows on. The evening was so much fun!
