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!
