Sometimes fashion takes you to the most unexpected places. This is what keeps me interested. Last night I found myself in the heart of Paris' red light district -- home to some salacious joints like les Folies Pigalle and le Moulin Rouge. Why would I show up in such a place in the middle of the week? Because when I received an email from Gentry Lane inviting me to her latest event in Paris, I knew I had to attend:
Because my brand is associated with all things vintage and glamorous, I decided to bring the best burlesque performers from Europe and the US together along with the amazing electro gypsy jazz band Caravan Palace for a night of burlesque that Paris hasn't seen since the likes of Josephine Baker.
Gentry Lane is one of the leading protagonists of the innerwear-as-fashion trend (in a different vein from VPL) that we have seen take off over the past few years. Last night, she cleverly combined this with the not-so-underground burlesque revival that has been sweeping the shores of many of the world's coolest cities. All this to highlight the world of Gentry de Paris, her loungewear and lingerie label....et voilà! An event that brings people into Gentry's universe.
