Søren's Hats Again - Elle

The suits and hoods I made for Søren Bach's hat collection about a year ago have now featured - together with Søren's hats - as the main styling element in a beauty/make-up editorial in Danish Elle, January 2011 issue. I still think that fur and latex is a hot combination! All photos by Mattias Edwall, make-up by Sine Ginsborg.

Burlesque Costume For Christian

At the end of November 2010, I was imported to Copenhagen to make a costume for my friend Christian's Burlesque Festival, which he was also hosting as 'The Gentleman'.
I posted sketches of my ideas before I started the project (see October 2010 post), and Christian and I agreed that I made a sleeveless, short legged 'play suit', with a very deep cut, and a pair of seamed stockings. He also gave me a vintage top hat to cover in rubber. I only had a day and a half to make it, from pattern, made from scratch, to finished product. The result is cute, sexy and stylish.
