Lovesick Medical Corset in German Vogue (November 2014)

Holy Moly ! Worn by the stunning Nadja Auermann !




Nadja Auermann looks so fantastic it is nearly impossible to even notice what she is wearing. The corset is a black leather medical inspired brace, with three sets of cluster lacings and straps, and button on suspenders. The stylist switched the direction of the straps so they cross in the front.

Styled by the beyond reproach Patti Wilson.



Lovesick Briefs in Chloe Magazine (Fall/Winter 2014)


The ghost of Poison Ivy's (guitar player from the Cramps if you don't KNOW that) "A Date With Elvis"(c.1986)wardrobe met and mated with some dimly felt hair-metal-loving-gal's Saturday night go-go underpants that were made by an Atomage fan. That sums up these old school unlined thick leather high cut briefs, with zippers, and elastic panel and back laces.





Once again, styled by the fantastic Joanna Plisko, shot by Richard Dubois.

Reading List For Toronto Public Library by Andrea Johnson

A friend who works for the library asked me to contribute a list for their "Who's Reading What ? Series.

This is by no means a comprehensive list of my favorite corset or fetish related books - and I was bound by the fact that books had to be currently available within this library system. IF you are curious about what books I like to read, well, here you go:

Lovesick Items in Garage Magazine # 6 "Always and Forever" Shot by Nick Knight

showstudio.com/project/always_forever/editorial_gallery

http://www.garagemag.com

I was utterly shocked when I was contacted by Garage Magazine for items for an upcoming editorial to be shot by Nick Knight. Very established models, including Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Marina Nery, Georgia May Jagger, and Liya Kebede were booked for this shoot, styled by Charlotte Stockdale. When items are pulled for a shoot - there is never a guarantee that what is loaned will get shot, or make the final editorial cut, IF it makes it through customs clearance on time ! Show Studio ran a livestream during the two day shoot. I checked in a couple of times, and almost fell off my chair when I saw Karlie Kloss wearing the white satin back brace during her shoot. The following day I checked the livestream again and felt like I was going to have an aneurysm when I saw the cowboy corset and bra worn by Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley !

To compound the strangeness further - the photos from the shoot would be used as reference for actual tattoos. For those who don't know - I had a very long romantic relationship with a tattooer - who utterly pulverized my heart. I have stayed very far away from tattoo anything since. I was relieved to discover that this person was NOT one of the tattooers taking part in this project, however. Art imitated life, when the tattoo based on Karlie Kloss' images completely erased the surface, leaving no trace of the garments on top of her bones. Rosie's image was distorted, as though she was in the process of igniting. The tattooer used her image as though she was viewed through a keyhole - eeriely reminiscent of the very first logo that was drawn for me by my former love - which featured a heart-shaped padlock with a large old fashioned keyhole...








These are a couple of images taken during the shoot, from Garage's twitter feed. Everyone looked incredible, and watching it happen felt surreal.








Tantalum Magazine Issue # 30 "Singular Beauty"


The Lovesick Skeleton Cincher asserts itself again, in an editorial in Tantalum Magazine. Styled by the wonderful Red Fashion and shot by Richard Dubois.





Jade Vixen Photographed by Christophe Mourthe

The amazing Jade Vixen photographed by the amazing Christophe Mourthe ! Jade is wearing custom made Lovesick corsets, both with a 17" waist. The pink corset is an ultraplunge halter style, with lace appliques on the front and back, with contrast stitching. The black silk corset has antique ivory lace trim, with pthalo green stitching, matching silk trim and wide garters. Because Jade is so tiny, I cannot even photograph these corsets on a dress form to document them. Beautiful !
