This season, I was delighted to be invited to showcase my collection at Manchester fashion week.
I was part of the “We are Manchester” showcase on the Saturday and presented my spring/summer collection, which can be viewed here.
My friends from Vauhaus came to help out and also co-hosted the aftershow party, which I will write about in my next post.
Amber paired the mirror leggings and crop top with her horsebird varsity for a cool day time look while flyering and helping dress the models.
Jen and Hazel, my personally selected models, ready for the show!

The flower playsuit is one of my favourite pieces in the range and features over 100 hand-made flowers. Special thanks to my intern, Lindsay for helping me make them.
The models were provided by PHA models.

I walked on at the end to take my bow, something that was a first for me as most of my shows don’t take this format.
For information or to shop the collection, please head to the online store.
Next month, to celebrate the third birthday of my label, Eustratia and officially test out my showroom I’m hosting my first open house event.
The whole house will be open to friends of the brand, models, photographers and potential customers who will be able to view and try on samples, preview the new collection, talk to me in person and find out about upcoming projects.
Regular Eustratia models will be available to talk about wearing latex to those who haven’t tried it before or would like to know a bit more about it.
Our friends from VAUHAUS will also be in attendance with beautiful new faces to introduce and a guest photobooth by Toria Brightside, agent and chief photographer.
Richard Ayres will be showcasing his bespoke chainmail accessories and visitors will have the change to see it in person and talk about about commissions.
TG Manchester promoter Frankie Knuckles will also be making an appearance for those who would like to find out about future events.
I will be inviting creatives that have collaborated with the brand over the last three years, local models, photographers and industry people as well as a few magazines but the event is also geared towards potential customers who want to find out more about the brand or latex clothing in general. Please get in touch if you can get to Manchester and would like to attend. The address will be available on the Facebook event page and there will also be transport available from Piccadilly train station at 2:30pm to bring people to the event if they are not local to Manchester.
