The Baroness on ‘Pop of the Morning’

On March 4, I was invited to appear on E! Entertainment’s Pop of the Morning as a latex expert to respond to the viral images of Kim Kardashian wearing latex from Balmain’s newest collection. As usual, great opportunities seem to come at the most inopportune time (this time, near the end of a 2-week marathon of working on many incredible outfits for clients and for me for the Texas Latex Party; the day before leaving for TLP; and not having the time to wash my hair or do my nails! Not to mention, first thing in the morning!)

But of course I said yes. It was brief, and while spreading the gospel of latex I still managed to be tactful, I thought. Despite the time constraint I did get host Scott Tweddie into our men’s Captains jacket, in which he looked great!

The Baroness’ Lecture at the National Arts Club: Latex in Fashion

I was invited by the Fashion Committee of The National Arts Club to speak on Latex in Fashion on Feb 7 at their NYC clubhouse.

The enthusiastic, standing-room-only crowd gave me a warm welcome, and seemed interested in more than the fashion side of latex!

While the event was live-streamed on Facebook, this video is a bit easier to watch. Coming soon, the question-and-answer segment that followed my presentation.

On behalf of the fashion committee, I would still like to thank you again for bringing not only such an interesting and unique program to the club, but also your great sense of humor and grace. I can assure you it was one of the most popular programs we have ever had, and I heard many people still talking about it in the club during this week – that does not happen often!  We can surely talk about future collaborations.
