Earlier this summer i was contacted by one of my Burlesque and pin up idols, Anna Fur Laxis.  As well as being the face of so many massive vintage reproduction companies.  She is the hottest burlesque performer!  She is famed for her axe throwing.  I saw her perform for the first time at the Gilded Merkin in July, she was amazing!

Voted No. 5 in the world in the "Burlesque Top 50" and placing First Runner Up in both the 2011 Milan Burlesque Awards and "Miss Exotic World" at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, the industry's highest regarded awards ceremony, Anna has performed Burlesque across the globe in locations including the UK, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Zurich, Brussels, Tokyo, Barcelona, Helsinki, Milan, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco, Melbourne & Sydney. Her modelling credits include work for high profile retro/vintage clothing & accessories companies, and the covers of numerous magazines.(source)

Anna got in contact with me after being recommended by Miss Rain, who i am eternally grateful for.  Anna already had the gorgeous fabric, eight meters which she got from a fabric store in LA.  She had lots of ideas on how she wanted the dress too look.  I love working on burlesque costumes, they are a chance to be really creative.  Its also a fun challenge to figure out a way for the garments to be removed in the most sexy way possible! ;)





 The dress also had to be designed to conceal what she was wearing under neath.  And to find out what is underneath her gown, make sure you catch her perform her new act live.  With a name like "showgirl assassin" its gonna be good and i have a feeling weapons will be involved!
