I’m hoping you’ve all been getting a nice hearty dose of delicious eye-candy, by way of the new Fall 2012 collections and presentations during NYFW. There are more than a few designers that have stolen my heart so far, but I seriously narrowed down the list to just three, so that this post wouldn’t go on for an eternity.
Duro Olowu–Eye-popping colors, and oh my gosh, that cape…
Meet Anyssa Jordan–a 34-year-old fashion and nude model based out of South Florida. Anyssa holds a BFA in dance, and spent most of her time performing modern dance until her late 20s, when an injury caused a change of plans.
Mam’zelle Maz is a 30-year-old French model currently living in London. She has a number of diverse talents to brag about–besides fetish and pin-up modeling, she’s also a jive and ballet dancer, performer, and trainee saw player.
Check out Miss Cobweb, a 23-year-old model from England. This lovely lady is a hairdresser, makeup artist, as well as a new mom as of this year.
I initially started reading up on 21-year-old model, Erika Rodgers, because she has an interest in Japanese fashion and used to live in Tokyo, and I wanted to find out a little more about that. However, then I came across something that left me speechless (sorry, this has nothing to do with modeling, but I HAVE to share this).

You might have recently seen this 22-year-old Polish model on the cover of the August/Sept issue of Auxiliary Magazine.
She’s done quite a bit of runway, for Torture Garden, Montreal’s Alternative Fashion Week, and Montreal’s Fetish Weekend (an alt-model to the core, I love it). (more…)
A number of months ago I introduced you to Lady Noctis, the petite alt-model and visual artist from the U.K. who’ s often found in Bizarre Magazine and has modeled for quite a few dark fashion and fetish clothing companies, such as Jane Doe Latex and Artifice Clothing. Recently I got a chance to know Lady Noctis a little better, and she told me about early interest in fetish clothing, her inspirations, and the challenges she faces due to her height (she’s 4’11”).
I read that in your teens you became interested in waist training and fetish clothing. Tell me a bit about your teen years and growing up…did you have access to subcultures or communities that shared your interests?
My first taste of corsetry and latex was introduced to me when I was an adolescent. It was apparent within all art forms and movies that I love and adore; the aesthetics of them and the way they transformed the human body as well as their personality just fascinated me. When I was about 16 I purchased my first waist training corset, which I saved up for for quite some time. The instant I put it on, I felt a change within myself; not only within my figure but in the way I held myself. I could not afford any latex until I was 19 and with that I bought myself a custom-made Harley Quinn costume (Catsuit and Headpiece). There is not that much of a fetish scene in Wales so I never got any idea of it until 20. This was from discovering the Torture Garden, as well as some smaller clubs that seemed more suited to my attire… (more…)
Kira Krueger is a semi-retired model, but she still takes work for select projects and companies, and was recently featured in Fangoria.
37-year-old Lea Vendetta does triple-duty as a model, painter, and tattoo artist. Lea was born in France, but now calls Florida her home, where she does tattoos at a place called A Stroke of Genius.
Melissa not only models, but is also a hairstylist and owns a rather nice shop–Our Little Secret–full of hair and beauty products.
