Flower tribe.

I’ve been inspired to create a pastel image set with with tribal influences for nearly a year now and finally had some free time to play around. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use some of my new Bodyjewelleryshop.com pieces in a shoot.

I love trying out new types of body jewellery and the items featured in this set are some of my current favourites.

Most of these where sent to me by Bodyjewelleryshop.com (which was super nice of them) but I also included a couple of items from my personal collection, as I do use their site frequently.

To complete the look I added an oversized jewellery set I made myself out of latex, faux pearls and flowers. Though I make stuff nearly every day, I still enjoy putting together costume pieces for shoots and shows.

The flower harness and stripey bralet are part of the upcoming spring range for Eustratia and should be on sale in the near future. I’d love to know what you think of them!

VAU VAU Part II: Fashion Circus, the show!

Toria Brightside knows how to put together an event. Vau Vau was good last year but it was evident that the concept had been ironed out at the edges and the execution was more professional, while still remaining fun and full of character. A fashion show promoting sense of style and independent designers.

I got help with the stall because I knew that I would hardly have a change to be there.

One of the designers pulled out at the past minute, giving me the opportunity to showcase a few pieces from my upcoming non-latex range, Vanguard. I used chainmail pieces by Richard Ayres to add edge and detail to the outfits and I thought the worked really well together.

My favourite part of the show was still the finale though. The dolls house, created and erected by Richard Ayres was used as a backdrop for the whole show but was only functional for the finale. A lot of guests commented on the fact that it puzzled them for the whole night and I liked that added element of intrigue.

The presentation and subsequent range was inspired by dolls and the show started with a pair of models draped in sheer fabric (evoking a dust sheet), as if they had been left in a forgotten room for a number of years.

The second pair of models appeared from inside the dolls house in much more current but still doll-inspired outfits and proceeded to uncover the first set of models before walking down the catwalk.

The rest of the models emerged and descended at regular intervals. Two held ornate trays filled with dried petals which the scattered along the catwalk as the went and rest carried vintage bird cages, hanging off poles and filled with fairy lights and flowers or ivy.

My girls had Make up by Jack Tyson and nails by Vamp.

Models in order of appearance: Tessa Burton (vauhaus), Lauren feather (vauhaus), Vex Ashley, Bethany Lauren (vauhaus), Jennifer Joint, Amber Dennet, Briony rose, Harlotte Wonderland, Asphazia, Biomechanina.

I especially loved the magical video by NVS Films, it really captured the atmosphere of the show.


Candy Latex, pop and pastel colours.

For the past couple of weeks I’ve had a temporary intern helping out at the studio. Today was her last day and she was looking through my product pictures album, telling me about the product she liked, when I thought it would be a great idea to get her to write a blog post about them. I think comparing the items to sweets was really clever and hope that she has an awesome time living and working in Berlin for the next few months.

I don’t usually feature posts by others but if you guys enjoy this, let me know and I will look out for other potential guest bloggers.

Candy Latex, pop and pastel colours.

Hi, My names Iasha Masood, and for the past two weeks I’ve been an intern at Eustratia, I have had an amazing two weeks here and got to see so much of the upcoming collection which you should all be super-excited about! I’ve learned so much and I’m so grateful for this lovely experience so I wanted to write a guest post about some of my favourite products from Eustratia! Now for the products!…

Some of the Eustratia products look good enough to eat.  You shouldn’t eat latex, but in this blog post I’ll show you why I get hungry looking at some of Eustratia’s sexy designs!

The first piece is the Candy stripe bra in these delicious colours; it’s a playful and bold piece which can show off your fun side. The striped design actually accentuates your figure by making you appear taller (and look like a yummy piece of candy!) whilst the style of the cups gives an impression of a bigger bust.  Over the years the Red white combination has been used so much, not just in lollipops and candy but it’s used for Valentine’s Day because it symbolises romance and sweet feelings.

The next one is the super sweet Bow bra, in Bubble-gum pink and light blue the colours look so yummy you could lick them! The bow bra is a simple bra featuring double straps and a design that helps to give a more pushed up look to your bust. The colour scheme is used a classic pastel combination famously used in those fizzy cola bottles that we all loved so much.

Saving the best until the last the mirror dress is one my favourite pieces. It’s a stunning flattering design featuring a reflection of a beautiful fantasy scene with butterflies, flowers and trees. Finished with Eustratia’s signature unicorns. A truly marvellous unique piece this one is not only stunning but its colours are absolutely lick-able featuring bubble-gum pink, mint, and yellow it almost look like you’re a pretty piece of wrapped up candy! This dress has hours and hours of delicate applique work done on it and is just one of the unique pieces from the reflections collection.
