Although there was no latex couture mentioned, according to a brand-new UK poll, denim jackets, knee-high boots, and even the classic leather biker jacket made a top ten list of most iconic fashion trends. What was #1? The mini skirt. In this study published at The Sun, two thousand British folks were asked to list …
Currently working through the European stage of their huge On the Run Tour 11, Beyoncé and JAY-Z reveal a costume during the show that would even make a latex clothing devote stand-up and take notice. Interestingly enough, though we reported on the couture the couple is using in ORT11, one of the most unique (and downright sexy) dresses to take notice of appears only on video during the show.
To be sure, the cars are any amazing accompaniment to the couture and does make the Couture & Cars Fashion Show certainly something we love to be part of. The visual allure of vintage and modern exotic sportscars with models walking a runway among them is a match made in alt. fashion heaven. We know for instance, that the World of WerableArt’s museum, all the way over in New Zealand, featured a match-up of fashion designer’s clothing (our winning one included) with cars just recently and Mr. Bailey’s assumption that more men do attend these shows seems to be born out time and again when we have seen our couture matched with car culture.
Forever championing the empowerment of women (and men too) Dawnmatrix has always been about expressing one’s self through our textile art. Be it transforming, costume play or imbuing the wearer with the confidence to step out feeling as sexy as they ever can, we agree with Shawntil’s’ take on wearer (women with sunglasses in her case) as warrior.
The Norwegians have previously worn all sorts of patterned trousers but this color concoction display was special.
Not outdoing the Norwegians in color, Mexico’s Olympics skiers have adorned their black suits with skulls. Six time Olympic Mexico skier Hubertus Von Hohenlohe was inspired from his home country’s Dia de los Muertos holiday, to create these uniforms.
From their Kendall + Kylie clothing collection, the famous Jenner sisters attempted to release what they were calling “vintage” music t-shirts this week. The ladies took to superimposing their K&K logo or their faces (and in some cases, bikini shots) over classic album cover art and music star images. Using pictures from The Notorious B.I.G., Metallica, Led Zeppelin and many more, the sisters received a huge backlash this week when they revealed their latest attempt at hip haute couture across Instagram.
Teaming up with estate seller Everything But the House, Lucci has some items starting at a price of only one dollar and the action, which runs until March 10th, will donate a portion of Lucci’s sale to United Cerebral Palsy of New York City (her grandson is afflicted with the disease). Included in the collection being offered are outfits Susan Lucci has worn on set, as well as pieces she has shown off at various events, plenty of which she told ET, “have been photographed on red carpets.”
Sarah Jessica Parker as “Carrie Bradshaw” might not have worn so much (or any at all) latex outfits in Sex In The City. She was considered a fashion icon though from starring in that hit show of years ago, influencing culture with Cosmos as with her shoes, well-placed “material” flowers and clutches. “Did you see …
Australian audiences fell hard for this movie last fall. The Dressmaker hit the #1 spot at the ‘down under’ box office, earning $14.4 million in total and grabbed five wins at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards. One of these awards went to Winslet winning for best lead actress.
We were contacted by stylist Andrew Richardson over the summer to create a larger-than-life look for the “Fireworks” singer, pieces as sexy as they were unusual, for a Covergirl “Plumpify Mascara” commercial. Dressing a woman known for her outrageous and innovative fantasy costume designs, someone who can straddle both the sexy and the silly, a pop star of infinite different looks and persona, we knew we had to bring the very best to this assignment and take the word “Plumpify” to a whole new level.
Dawn Mostow is a Harvard University-educated artist and latex designer. Her Dawnamatrix line of luxury latex couture and accessories represents a revolution, merging fine art with high fashion. Dawn says of her hard-working fashion ethos: “It is my goal to showcase the range of possibilities available when creating garments in latex, and to infuse the …
Serofonte called Dawnamatrix and ordered 68 garments in total for the Beyoncé’s VMA outing, including garter belts and stockings, vintage bra and panty girdle sets, all made of high grade latex. Having previously been commissioned by Covergirl to make pieces for Pink and Katy Perry, Dawnamatrix is no stranger to working with pop stars or supplying outfitsand accessories to award shows. This order for Beyoncé’s performance was the culmination of five years of hard work the Boston-based alternate fashion company has been putting into their brand.
On hand this year will be authors like Raymond Fiest, cartoon creators like Neal Adams and super celebs like BBC’s Sherlock/Khan/Smaug Benedict Cumberbatch to make fans crazy, Cosplay kids shake and sweat and major news outlets via for stories. Along the way there are panels and talks, previews and a film/T.V. schedule (including sneaks and premier footage) so secretive one won’t know exactly what is being shown until one grabs a program at the convention itself.
Yes, we are paying lots of attention to summer movies here. There were those few blogs about the magnificent Maleficent (the fantasy outfits, hair styles, make-up Angelina Jolie sported were just too fetish-y wonderful to ignore). And we’ve opined about superhero-like fare that’s upon us this summer to. But ‘reality movies’ (in fact a bio pic) can also have lots of wonderful fashion in them and this is certainly case with the super smart suits and 50’s/60’s fashions in the new Jersey Boys movie.
As latex wearers as much as designers we want ever more captivating colors, luscious cuts and sexy styles and if and when we can manage them, certainly prints of outstanding quality and rendering across our latex. We seem to have hit on a very popular ‘trend’, something we certainly did not predict but are thrilled to exploit all the same, our Leopard Print Latex.
There is no way we could do what we do here at Dawnamatrix without the groundbreaking work women like Bunny Yeager did for fashion, photography and the general exploration and consideration of the full rich possibilities of the nude female form as art. Fantasy-based fashion, sexy costume-ry, fetish iconography all were birthed from the pictures, attitude and daring of ladies like Bettie Page and Bunny Yeager (have you seen the Katy Perry/Madonna ‘Power of Pop’ photos in the June issue of “V” magazine…talk about being influenced!) We as much recognize a talent like Bunny Yeager as we are inspired by her, even more so impressive considering that this lady worked in a time when the types of photographs she took could be, and often were, sited as pornographic and therefore against the law.
