World of WearableArt “Up Close” Opens

Assessing what we learn from the pandemic, there are sure to be wholly new designs across the art world that surface. Certainly, latex fashions, cosplay, leather wardrobes, fetish gear will survive the current hiccup in our history in their way. Once again, we thank the World of WearableArt for doing their unique and very best championing this survival.

Latex: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Really, any time is a good time for wearing, buying, ‘gifting’ latex (yes, it’s our job to say this, but we really do feel this way). With the mainstream coming to our side more and more each year, popular videos featuring every style imaginable, and not just latex, and the proliferation of designers and latex websites (and as we always say, competition just makes us all the better in the end) latex is here for all to enjoy…and give for the holidays ahead.

‘In The Morning’ (And in the flesh) With Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo’s most arresting couture moments. From opening the century in an iconic, open sea-green Versace gown to the naked sparkly dress she wore at the 17th Annual CFDA Awards to stepping out in a sheer Zuhair Murad Couture jumpsuit at the 7th Annual Latin Grammy’s to sporting Versace again, all silvery beaded gown with a matching headdress for last year’s Met Gala, there is no mistaking the sartorial choices this woman makes.

Megan Thee Stallion Shares Her “Body” With Us

Music, latex, naughty lyrics…just what is 2020 coming to? And how can we get more of it?! If you have yet to catch it, Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body” video (see it here) dropped last week with her new album “Good News.” It’s a fantastically dirty call to female body image and empowerment, featuring some fantastic costuming, stunning styles, lots of booty, and an array of cameos.

Gothic Image Relaunch 2020

Andy has been on the scene, publishing in magazines like “Skin Two,” attending the German Fetish Ball, Barbican, and the primo fetish/alt. shopping event Le Boutique Bazaar, to name just a few places he set his camera and talents over the years.

Vijat Mohindra, Miley Cyrus and A Good Cause

Born in Ohio, and raised in Chicago, Vijat moved to L.A. at the age of eighteen and lives there presently capturing celebrities. A former assistant of David La Chapelle, Vijat has placed his work in Paper magazine, Gay Times, Attitude, and Plastik. He mines what has been called an anti-vérité style of photography.

Guccifest Taps top stars for “Ouverture of Something that Never Ended”

Not that either Harry Styles or Billie Eilish are particularly known for their latex styling, but they are for modern music hits and couture all their own. And it seems that Gucci is recognizing both for their sartorial intelligence, more than just outfitting the singers as they have for quite some time. The designer has …

Oh No, Noah Cyrus!

Stepping out to the store in a pair of thigh-high leather boots or a latex mini (guy or gal) might still engender a stare or two. And as Noah Cyrus learned this week, showing lots of oneself, even during a modern music award show, is just too much for some.

2020 Halloween costumes choices

While people debate the “Are You?” “Are You Not?” question of attending socially-distanced parties, or letting their kids trick-or-treat, we found a bunch of websites (see here, and here) showcasing trending costumes, as well as we’ll throw our point hat into the ring to predict 2020 Halloween costume choices.

Lady Gaga & Voice Vivafragrance

But the marriage of her song “Sine From Above,” and how perfectly Piccioli has dressed the diva in the past (plus Gaga’s Italian heritage that Piccioli noted in some Instagram posts recently) make for another smashing, high-cultural collaboration between the star and the designer.

Diana Rigg: Fashion Icon, Multi-award Winning Actress, Empowered Grande Dame

Arguably the lady’s most famous character, “Emma Peel,” was the very embodiment of a sexy, empowered women kicking ass (literally) during the mid-’60s of swinging England. Wearing as much dangerously sexy outfits (and there is no mistaking the fetish wardrobe, really!) as mod fashions on The Avengers, Rigg became as much a fashion icon as many a teenage boy’s (and some girl’s) fantasy.

Torture GarDen vs. COVID-19

As it has with almost every business on the planet, COVID-19 certainly cut into fetish events, latex fashion shows, and pretty much the see-and-be-seen scene. But one of the biggest producers of those kinds of events in London, the well-known house of alternative wardrobes and naughty fun, Torture Garden, returns with their “Pearl Necklace Supper Club Night.”

Hooray For The MET!

In light of COVID-19’s shutdown, nobody much imagined they’d see the usual array of latex couture, wild lace and leather creations, and all the other fantastic wardrobe usually associated with the yearly Met Ball. But this year, even without our best and brightest celebrities showing up to show off, the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art …

2020 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS FASHION: INSIDE AND OUT

o matter if we saw latex jumpsuits, leather-and-lace combinations, or lingerie worn as an accessory, we all knew this year’s VMA’s would be different than any in the show’s three-decade history. Playing across our TVs, tablets, and other streaming devices, the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards came at us all last Sunday night, socially distanced as we all knew it had to be, but still as colorful and wild as ever, inside and out.

Accessorizing With Rapper Mulatto

I’m always excited when wardrobe projects local to Atlanta come my way. And to once again be involved in the modern music scene is something Dawnamatrix is as much striving for as anything else we do in our particular couture business. I want to thanks stylists Tabitha Sanchez and Todd White for the chance to dress the “Queen of Da Souf,” Mulatto. It was a pleasure to be part of her world for even a brief time.

Skin: A History of Nudity in the Movies

s crucial as latex couture is to us, alternative fashions, cosplay, etc. we have to admit, that sometimes, what somebody is not wearing makes for a more impactful story. Mr. Skin’s Jim McBride has been attempting to prove this on his very popular Howard Stern-approved website for decades. Now, he has released a documentary, Skin: A History of Nudity in the Movies, approaching the who, when, and where someone showed themselves across the history of motion pictures.
