The 'Black And White' World Of Angelina

The press was slightly shocked at a recent photocall for her new movie Maleficent when Angelina Jolie showed up at Kensington Palace in a white Atelier Versace dress. Though she was sporting Louboutin heels with a deep red seemingly dripping down the back, Brad Pitt’s lady was looking positively alluring in white. And while we are all used to Jolie looking fetching the public is not so used to the lady in white…or any light color that is.

Guy Bourdin Pioneer

Working as we do all with tops in the field of latex & alt photography from Erik Von Gutenberg to Antonio Angelo to Mew-Chiel (to name but a few) a recent exhibition of Guy Bourdin reminds us once again of those who were pioneers in this field of fashion alternative images.
Guy Bourdin was a well known presence at French Vogue and the art world in general for four decades. Some of his rare works were on display at the tail end of this April at Paris Photo, L.A.’s, Louise Alexander gallery.

Dawnamatrix @ Dominatrix Amsterdam

Recently we happened over to the decidedly kinky city of Amsterdam to see our latex breathe, shift and play in a runway fashion show at Dominatrix Amsterdam. The capital city of the Netherlands hosts plenty of kinky events during the year. A goodly amount of ladies (doms) ply their trade with whip, flogger and attitude there. And we knew to truly show-off what we make to lots of folks who care about what about we make Dominatrix Amsterdam is where we just had to be.

Video of Elena Lee Modeling Dawnamatrix at The Von Gutenberg Ball in Miami…outside and in.

This promotional video was just released: https://vimeo.com/m/92428136. It shows model Elena Lee modeling two of our outfits down in the warm climes of Florida’s South Beach, all of us there for the recent Von Gutenberg Ball in Miami. The video production is by Blind Beast, photographs by Antonio Angelo Photography. And Elena is wearing both the Dragon Lady Dress (see here: https://dawnamatrix.com/belted-flare-coat/ and Belted Flare Coat, (see here: https://dawnamatrix.com/belted-flare-coat/)

The Dragon Lady Dress is inspired by traditional Chinese cheongsam dresses and features a laser cut dragon. The flared coat can be (and is the way Elena is wearing it here) a daring alternative couture piece. You can use it to accessorize an outfit, or simply just as an outfit all its own. We of course support any way you want to mix and match your wardrobe.

Superheroes, Cosplay, Latex Costumes… Oh My: Fantasy Costumes Are Upon Us Again

Yes, summer is coming and with it another round of big blockbusters. There will be comedies and romances for sure, but the alternate wardrobe designer’s heart beats over the spate of superhero movies we know are coming. Captain America: The Winter Soldier has just been released, a second Spiderman movie will swing on in May …

Dawnamatrix and Yummy Gummy Sheet Latex

Yummy Gummy’s all hand-poured Sheet Latex was born out of the knowledge of a sheet latex company called Cyberdermis. The special high quality medical grade liquid latex is cosmetic safe with FDA approved colors. Yummy Gummy offers alternate wardrobe makers like us patterned, textured, galaxy, marbled and glittery latex (to name just some of what they make). You can see what we made with Yummy Gummy latex in our Marbled Underwire Gown and our Marble-button-down.

Come to the Kimono: The Dawnamatrix Specialty, on Display In Our Store and in Exhibits.

Our main designer/CEO Dawn lived for many years in Japan and studied Kimono design and wear. To say her study and love of the culture and the unique history- rich garment seeped into her artistry would be an understatement. With this background it is no surprise that after the terrible tsunami of 2011 we held a fundraiser for Japan, managed a kimono performance at the Boston Children’s museum, continue to place our pieces in exhibits and create new Kimono designs all the time.

Nautical Theme Latex Outfits Debut at Olympia Le-Tan's Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, Paris Fashion Week

Not only did our nautical theme latex outfits debut at Olympia’s Paris Fashion Week but models Amber Heard and Kiko Mizuhara were involved in showing off the line as was legendary lens men photographer Araki involved in shooting it.

Dressing Katy Perry and Pink For Covergirl

Two of the most popular female pop singers of the day were recently outfitted by Dawnamatrix. Once again we stepped into the music as well as advertising world with our latex designs, this time dressing Katy Perry and Pink for Covergirl.
Clothing pop divas is nothing new for Dawnamatrix, but when it comes to outfitting women as much known for their stage persona as what they wear when on stage (and off it) the task is an especially important making sure all parties are pleased. Add into the mix that in this particular instance we were working for super brand Covergirl and the desire to make the most of our fashioning designing was a main concern.

A Latex Bride and Groom take their vows at Steampunk Springfield: Re-Imagining an Industrial City

Here at Dawnamatrix we took it upon ourselves to answer the oft heard nuptial query: “Bride’s side or Groom’s side” to an alternate extreme. Contributing latex bride and groom garments both to the “Brassy Bridal” section of Steampunk Springfield: Re-Imagining an Industrial City once again we are part of a unique museum exhibit. Designed for the modern bride and groom, utilizing Western as well as Eastern 19th century motifs (and a good smattering Steampunk influence) it’s no surprise that our latex couture fit so well into this new exhibit.

The Game (of Thrones) Is Afoot Again…and Dawnamatrix Is Ready

Famous latex model Mosh recently modeled our Game of Thrones themed outfit. We’re celebrating the super popular H.B.O. series (and of course Mosh’s unique style) with the new season of Game of Thrones premiering this past week. Thinking dragons, swords, limb removal and of course super sexy Peter Dinklage we aren’t ‘playing’ games here at Dawnamatrix when it comes to our love for the H.B.O. series.

Peter Gonzales Photography

Dawnamatrix is proud to collaborate with Peter Gonzales Photography of Albuquerque, NM and Licked Magazine on an increasing portfolio of gorgeous photography. Peter’s skill at photographing beautiful models wearing latex fashion is defined by the brilliance and shine his photos capture during each shoot.
