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.

Where Does One Wear Latex? The Guggenheim International Gala, for One.

We get this question a lot at the boutique. For me, it’s not an issue— I like to wear latex every day. But we always like to hear about others’ experiences.

Samantha Radnor (@samantharadnor) made a splash at the Guggenheim Gala in November with her new Baroness corset. Here’s what she had to say:

” I wanted to send you a few photos from last week’s gala at the Guggenheim. I loved the corset so much and received rave reviews. Thanks again for fitting this for me! “

You’re welcome, Samantha! Thanks for sending us the photos!

These outfits were so fun to create, I love dressing performers as I know their outfits will be seen by many and I love the unique challenges that must be considered for their act. Aerial duo Sylvana and Kyla came to me with their vision of the characters Kitana and Meleena from the game Mortal Kombat and added SubZero as their bodyguard!

Lady Wednesday in Baroness Latex on the Jerry Springer Show

The inimitable Lady Wednesday brings a client to his knees on the Jerry Springer show to wild cheering, in a demonstration of foot worship. She then gets and eager audience member to join in on the foot fun.

She is elegantly appointed in The Baroness latex rubber purple and black striped bodice corset, matching purple Long Tight Skirt and Sleeves. Topping off her sexy, shiny outfit is a latex flower headpiece.

The Baroness Latex Cat Ears for Mayors’ Alliance for NYC Animals

I made these limited edition latex cat ears to support the Mayor’s Alliance. The left ear is clipped to signify that the cat has been spade or neutered. The color was chosen in honor of Hamlet, the famous resident cat at the  Algonquin Hotel, which hosts annual benefits for the Alliance.

While these ears are custom-made for the Mayor’s Alliance, our standard Kitten Ears are available in many other colors. 10% of every sale of Kitten Ears sale (as well as sales of other cat-themed items) goes directly to Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals!

Lune Looks Lucious in Latex

Lune is pictured here in stunning black and white, wearing a Spotted Bodice Corset, Striped Pedal Pushers, Spotted Opera Mitts, and solid black Capelet, purchased at DomConLA. I love the contrast! A bold and unexpected fashion statement. It puts me in mind of my black and white all stripes and spots fashion show at Montreal Fetish Weekend. Fabulous!

Please note: the spotted and striped options Lune is wearing are special order/custom only.
