This month we're catching up with polish pin up beauty Retrofem, who's recently modelled our Oyster satin soft bra, Y strap suspender belt and classic hipster Knicker. She has some wonderful tips and sources of inspiration for aspiring pin up models!
This week we’re featuring our newest range, the Oyster Satin set.
The wonderful pearly fabric is the exact same divine heavy weight satin as our peacock satin range, but it’s a gorgeous rich oyster colour. We’ve made this range in the soft bra, Y strap suspender belt and classic knicker.
How long have you been involved in the Pin up/Burlesque scene and what got you into it?
Goodness! I’m at risk of giving away my age here but a little over 10 years now. I started experimenting with vintage style in my late teens and began performing burlesque in 2011. I fell into burlesque through studying theatre at university, I was doing a play about vaudeville performers and went along to burlesque classes as part of my ‘character research’ like the diligent actress I was. I had a full on rhinestone and glitter induced epiphany and suddenly I was no longer a theatre actress but a fully fledged showgirl. I chucked in Shakespeare for corsets and committed to being a burlesque performer so my profile grew organically from there.
