Im very pleased to say I have been asked to be a sponsor AND a judge at the Miss Rubber World contest in New York on January 17th 2010. I’ve heard what a fun evening this is and I’m looking forward to it.

We have just added a new video of my range of lingerie and bedding. I think it’s very sexy and stylish. Hope you like it.

Yesterday I met up with Tim Woodward from Skin Two to record a video interview. I’ll let you know when it’s on the Skin Two website.

Something dawned on me today. Not much has changed in 25years. It still takes woman some persuading to try on latex. Almost all of the models I have used over the past few weeks have never worn latex but all have been amazed at how easy it is to put on, how good it feels once it’s on and how good it looks! All the models wanted to keep an outfit they had worn.

I get asked all the time “is it hot, uncomfortable, difficult to get on?” The answer to all 3 is NO! Well, with my clothes anyway. I design my clothes so that anything without a zip can be stepped into and pulled upwards. Just a bit of wiggling involved. The trick is to get comfortable and take it slowly. Make sure that the dress/leggings are in the correct position as you go up the body. Get the seams in the correct position as you go – it’s easier than trying to twist the outfit into position once it’s on. If it all goes wrong and you get in a tangle, it’s best to take it off and start again. It all sounds like a right faff but honestly – it’s not! And once you have it on you will be pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it feels.

What I really love about relaunching is the massive changes that have taken place in the last 15 years with the internet.

Youtube is the perfect place to get the word out there and I love making the little videos of all my products. Latex looks so great when you can see it in action!

When I had my shop in Kensington market I would be happy to get 100 people through the doors in a week. Most people teetered on the threshold, a bit shy or nervous to come and explore this strange new fabric. I made the shop as friendly as possible with velvet drapes and a granny rug. Now, on the first day of going live, I had over 3,000 visitors to my online shop. I think that’s amazing! I love it!

We’ve been working really hard the last couple of days editing and uploading short videos of some of the outfits. We’ve added them to the item description. Now you can see video of: stockings, bandeau dress, big knickers, plain and padded sheets, upholstered stool, camisole (that’s my favourite) pillowcases, cushions, zebra tote bag, classic straight skirt, and babydoll dress. And there are more to come in the next few days so come and visit us again soon.

Day 2

posted on November 26, 2009

Thanks for all the great feedback. We’ve had lots of fantastic responses to the site and some excellent news: The Saturday Telegraph magazine are running a picture in the style section on the 5th of December.

Some people have said they would like to see more photos on the site. Well we are preparing the next batch of photos and will be uploading them over the next few days. We also have over 20 videos of individual items which will be uploaded as they are finished. We’ll be trying to show designs in as many different colours as possible, so I’d better get back to work…

Day One! November 25th 2009

posted on November 24, 2009

Welcome to the opening of my brand new website and online store. It’s great to be back after a short gap of just 15 years, with lots of new designs alongside my classic best-selling vintage pieces.

Thanks to the enthusiasm and support of old friends and new; this project has snowballed. Over the last few months it’s gone from an idle comment whist watching a Lady Gaga video: “I used to make rubber clothes”
to someone saying: “why don’t you make your old catalogue available on the internet?”
to a whole new collection.

And this is just the beginning.

If you’re not shopping for clothes I hope you’ll still enjoy the site. We’ve lots of fabulous new images and we’re very proud of our promo videos which can be seen in the video gallery.

There’s lots of stuff we simply didn’t have time to get ready for opening day. So expect lots of new designs and videos over the next few days and weeks.

If you’d like to keep up to date as we add new things, please subscribe to this blog by clicking on the button above.

We’ve had such fun getting this site ready for day one, I can’t wait for day two!
