double page spread just published in the Belgian newspaper “Krant Van West-Vlaanderen”

Lovely little article about Carnaby Street - we're mentioned up in the top left corner...

Loosely translates as :

"Singles store further blows provoke the American jukebox from the 50years through the store of Nikita Sablier. Nikki sells new attire with a vintage garlic. The Betty Page-label can count on approval from the London incrowd."


Vintage garlic eh? Nice.... I think it's a nice review though!

Last night's Creatives Networking Night went really well-  a great opportunity for models, photographers, performers and stylists to get together and mingle! (with drinks a flowing and discounts in store of course!)

Congratulations to model Shiggi for winning our "door prize" of a Littlearth Handbag worth £109.00! :-)

Date of next one to follow shortly but likely to be early December so watch out for it and pop it in the diary - would be great to see new faces at the next one!

Website Re-Launch

Hi All,

I've decided to use a "proper" blog instead of the one which came with the website and is quite difficult to manage! Hopefully I'll be able to update you all more frequently on the goings on at Nikita Sablier!

I'll be posting about any press or website mentions we get, any celebrity appearances in store, any events that are upcoming and any deals or sales we currently have in store!

If there's other things you want to know - please leave a comment so I know what to update you with!

Take care,

Nikki

Owner - Nikita Sablier

Undercover at the Fashion and Textiles Museum

"The FTM’s exciting new exhibition Undercover traces the evolution of underwear from health garment, shape definer to fashion ‘must have’. It explores a number of themes such as boudoir to everyday glamour – ‘Stars and their bras’ looking at celebrity branding; research and innovation’s impact on the types of underwear we wear; and how the changing face of underwear advertising and marketing meshes with social and cultural changes. "


Nikita Sablier are delighted to have been a part of the exhibition last night! You can view a video of the evening including fashion shows with our collection here :

We were also lucky enough to dress some of the performers for the evening :

Miss Khandie Khisses performed a fabulous burlesque routine in our polkadot underbust corset:

Holly Walker performed in our Mary Poppins Corset and Fur Trimmed Corset Coat! (She also had a nipple tassel stuck to her face, we're not entirely sure why.!)


The gorgeous Miss Baby Sol performed in a leopard print Bettie Page Dress and flower corsage :

There were some fantastic dancers in our Freyagushi Military corsets :


And some of the girls from the fashion shows :
(Far left short blue Limb "Coy Carp" flare dress and electric blue petticoat are ours!)



All in all and exhausting but fabulous evening!

We also supplied outfits for a short movie played on the night - will post the video as soon as released!

Miss Kylie Minogue. Herself. In MY boutique!!

What a fabulous day - I had a visit from Kylie Minogue in store today - she was beautiful, down to earth and simply amazing!! I was lost for words for once!!

She bought a black mini top hat by Fabulous Fascinators , a pair of hotpants from our Bettie Page Clothing Collection (well, she IS Kylie Minogue - hotpants would be the obvious purchase!) and Five Satin Eyemasks by Bombay Duck (gifts for friends!)

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for appearances on stage in the hat or hotpants! I hope she gets "papped" carrying my bag out the shop too!

So exciting!

Yay!
