Fantastically foxy

A while ago I got asked to collaborate on an interesting project for a friends assignment. She wanted to do a roll reversal inspired by fox hunting and depict the foxes in beautiful gowns, prancing around their extravagantly decorated home.

She also wanted to involve latex fashion so I decided to give latex masks a try for the foxes. I haven’t made a mask before (except maybe when I was a young child) so it was a welcome challenge.

Here’s how they turned out:

We had a couple of options for the dresses but decided to go with the two latex gowns from the Opulence collection, available to buy here, and here.IMG_1121IMG_1208

Anniversary giveaway!

My label, Eustratia has now officially been trading for a year so I’m going a little giveaway to celebrate!

I’m thankful for all the support I’ve had throughout the last year from friends and people who enjoy my work. I hope by label will continue to grow and give me the opportunity to make more of my ideas come to life.

I thought it would be fitting that the prize be items from Eustratia so I have included a selection of accessories worth just over £100.

  • Black and white striped hair bow (medium)
  • black pussy bow neck tie
  • 3-piece Perspex set. Short antler trophy necklace (used in the aesthetic contradiction logo), long arctic fox necklace and moth pin.
  • standard fingerless gloves
  • bow cuff
  • striped folded flower
  • The winner will also receive a discount code granting them 20% off their next order from Eustratia.

I tried to pick a popular colour combo but there may be replacements available for the bow cuff and flower if any other colours we have in stock would suit you better.
