Midnights in Paris inspire her, while deep shadows cast from moonlit skies reflect in her dark, seductive ensemble of boudoir sheers, silky satins, vampy lace, fetish leathers and sumptuous velvets. Tough dominatrix corseting accentuates her hourglass figure, while buckles and laced thigh-high boots hint at a secretive darker side. The softer side of her femininity is exposed through adaptation of elements from romantic periods of the past, mainly 19th century Belle Époque and Baroque Rococo inspirations, where ruffles, bows, cameos, filigree metals and feathers tickle this mystery Madame’s fancy.
