LA BELLE DÉCADENCE


For some time last year I had this idea of a stage costume, that would also include big flat fans.



An idea that we early in autumn developed into a project:



That some months later, this February, turned into this:

And this, on stage:

You'll see this (and another act) in Milan in a couple of weeks!
That will most likely be my last show before my burlesque-mommy leave starts.

What a great concept! I love Art Deco and Burlesque, who knew they went together so well?

I really like your sketch & how you developed the concept. I am also very intrigued to see you performing, big tummy and all. It is quite courageous of you and I wonder how people react to this. I have never seen a pregnant dancer perform - it would be interesting to know how people have responded to your performance. Good luck for Milan!

OMG I didn't know you were still dancing. Look at you! You are amazing!

Sorry, totally missed the point of the post. The costumes are beautiful. I wish I could see you perform.

Fab photos. I think it's so amazing that you've been dancing even with a "baby belly" (and why shouldn't you as you look so beautiful). Just on of interest, are there many burlesque starlets who carry on performing when their pregnancy start to show on carry on as you did?

Hi great post. I hope you don't mind but I've tagged you over on my blog to do the High School Playlist. I hope you can find the time - I'd be really interested to hear your choices. Maybe when you have maternity leave xx
